Since the day President Trump won the election, the left has been calling him a “Russian puppet.”
Despite evidence pointing to the contrary, they are convinced that Trump answers to Russia when making policy decisions.
But Trump just proved them wrong while exposing the real Russia scandal, and it’s shocking.
When talking about Russia, the first thing the left tries to do is claim that President Trump is beholden to them. It doesn’t matter that Trump has been one of the harshest Presidents ever when it comes to Russia, and that the Russian government has spoken out against them.
The left continues this lie because it is harmful to Trump, and it is backed up by the liberal media who pushes the idea that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election. Needless to say, all of that is untrue.
But while Trump wasn’t involved in any Russia scandal, there are other countries that have. Germany, who is an ally to the United States, has a well-formed connection to Russia, and has provided them with boatloads of money.
Germany is highly reliant on Russia for their energy needs. This has been exacerbated due to Germany’s subsidized “green market,” which has in turn damaged their electrical grid.
This dependence on Russia for their energy needs has raised a lot of red flags, especially with President Trump.
President Trump has been on a bit of a tirade against NATO countries that have been ripping off the United States, with Germany being one of the worst offenders.
At a NATO conference this week, Trump has made waves by demanding that countries in NATO pay their fair share, instead of being subsidized by the United States.
NATO, which is supposed to be a mutually beneficial defense alliance, has been extremely unfair to U.S. taxpayers, who foot large chunks of other countries defense budgets through the treaty.
With Germany being one of those countries, Trump is especially upset that they continue to depend on Russia for their energy needs.
Under the NATO agreement, if Russia were to attack Germany, the United States would defend Germany. So President Trump feels that with Germany “making Russia richer,” it is damaging the strength of the NATO agreement.
Not only is Germany making Russia richer, the dependency could end as a strategic nightmare for Germany. If a heated conflict broke out between the two countries, Russia could easily cripple Germany simply by refusing to sell oil and gas to them.
That is why President Trump has spoken in the past about making it easier for European countries to ship natural gas products in order to break up the monopoly that Russia has in place.
Not only would that make the NATO alliance stronger, but it would weaken Russia financially.
These positions don’t sound like somebody who is beholden to Russia. It instead sounds like somebody who wants to break the dependence that other countries have on Russia.
Do you think that President Trump is doing the right thing in asking Germany to reduce their energy dependence with Russia?
