We all need to take a deep breath and think about the latest allegations against Donald Trump, because they are the most despicable in a long list of questionable acts.
The New York Times reported on Friday that Trump has known since March of a plan by Russia to pay Taliban soldiers to kill American troops in Afghanistan. Trump, according to the Times, has done nothing since learning of scheme. Also, it’s believed that the Taliban collected some bounties.
Perhaps most upsetting is what’s happened with U.S.-Russia relations since March, according to David Sanger of the Times.
- Donald Trump invited Vladimir Putin to a meeting of the G-7
- Trump said the U.S. would be withdrawing troops from Germany, a move Putin has long supported
- Trump failed to act against growing Russian cyber action in the U.S.
Trump has also provided ventilators to Russia for coronavirus patients.
