The New York Times and The Washington Post reported last week that U.S. intelligence warned the lawmakers that Russia would interfere with the 2020 US Presidential election. The story has not changed, Russians are allegedly boosting candidacy of the sitting US President Donald Trump.
The POTUS has made it even worse when tried to make excuses for something that has never been true, which was quickly and enthusiastically picked by media. Yet, despite claiming that Russia is interfering with the election, US intelligence could not provide any evidence.
In order to understand what is really going on, one should take a closer look at the policy of the Trump Administration towards Russia. Apparently, Washington and Moscow are not friends, moreover they seem to turning into enemies. During his presidency, Trump has repeatedly hit Russia with sanctions or certain restrictions, which makes it easy to state that the US-Russian relations are now at its worst since the Cold War.
If you still doubt whether Trump colluded with Russians, consider the followings: Russia has repeatedly been subjected to severe sanctions over far-fetched ‘human rights violations in Ukraine’ or alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria and the ‘illegal’ construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
Trump even supplied Ukraine with new weapons, completely revising the policies of his predecessor, Barack Obama. He supported deployment of NATO troops in the Baltic states, and also decided to expel a dozen Russian diplomats.
All of it makes it obvious that if Trump administration and the Kremlin colluded, the “Kremlin protege” would try to do his best to improve Russia’s position in the international arena, but we only see aggressive attacks.
