Trump’s Tougher on Russia Than Obama, That’s Just the Fact


The press roundly criticized the Trump administration for stating what should be obvious, the President has been much tougher on Russia than Obama ever was. In fact, he’s doing what Obama opposed.

An article in American Interest by Benjamin Hadid reflects concern about the President’s lack of verbal response to Russians interfering in U.S. elections, but he does confirm that Obama’s response was negligible. It was quite opposite President Trump’s.

Obama’s response was “weak and underwhelming”, he writes. Obama underestimated the Russian challenge.

We know that.
