Russia has gone off the rails – so Trump is giving them the Reagan treatment!
When you don’t hold up your end of the bargain, Donald Trump makes you pay for it.
Three decades ago, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet boss Mikhail Gorbachev signed a historic arms-control treaty.
Things were fine… for a while.
But recently, the Trump administration charges Russia with a “material breach of the treaty.” Worse yet, they’ve made no effort to “come back into compliance.”
So, Donald has had enough—he’s pulling out of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, and he made it clear why.
From Fox News:
“The Trump administration stressed it was Russia’s fault the treaty came to an end, pointing out that Moscow has been developing and fielding weapons that violate the treaty and threaten the U.S. and its allies, particularly in Europe.”
The treaty is over. Trump won’t stand by and let Moscow build their military capabilities in secret.
It’s not like Russia didn’t have their chances.
In fact, a senior Trump official made it plain that only one country is to blame for this fallout:
“Russia alone is to blame for this situation… We have taken every opportunity — dozens and dozens of opportunities across two administrations – to bring Russia back into compliance.”
Like Reagan, Trump is willing to make deals and keep the peace – but he’s also going to take you apart when you cross the line!
Another White House official said Russia has been way too secretive about its rising military, which is troublesome news.
For example, the former Soviet Union denied building a new offensive device in 2014… but now it’s done and ready to go.
They keep developing these things behind the scenes, and this definitely goes against the treaty.
And take note: the U.S. isn’t the only country to call out Russia for this violation, either.
Various European powers have criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin for dodging the INF treaty.
But it was Trump who acted quickly and decisively, for the security of the American people.
