A Kentucky Congressman just perfectly roasted Trump over his Russia-G7 scandal

The president’s flirtation with Vladimir Putin’s dictatorial regime took another disturbing turn today when Trump suggested to reporters that Russia should be readmitted to the G7, the economic council which was referred to as the G8 until Russia was expelled for their expansionist invasion of Ukraine. Trump’s idea was rightly rebuffed by our allies.

Russia has made no apology or restitution for its annexation of Crimea nor its undemocratic assault on the 2016 American election. Putin continues to have political enemies and journalists murdered at home and abroad.

All indications point towards a Russia that is growing more, not less, illiberal and bellicose. Inviting them back into G7 overlooks the litany of international crimes they’ve committed and continue to commit.

Until they make drastic changes there is no place for them in the community of civilized nations. Trump’s willingness to overlook Russia’s aggression makes no sense geopolitically and only serves to endear him to Putin.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and former Vice President Joe Biden have already slammed Trump over the matter.

Now, Representative John Yarmuth (D-KY) has joined the chorus of voices condemning Trump’s comments. Yarmuth took to Twitter to point out that Trump “sure is loyal to the country that elected him,” a clever reference to the conclusion by American intelligence agencies that Russia actively worked to elect Trump and keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.

While Yarmuth’s tweet was certainly funny, it’s also an accurate assessment of Trump’s unsettling habit of helping Putin’s Russia even if it means undermining American interests.

Trump’s statement be must contextualized within the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia. At this point, it seems like he’s not even trying to hide the fact that he’s been compromised by Putin.

Each time he does something like this, it becomes harder and harder to deny that Russia probably has blackmail material on the American President. Trump is sacrificing the best interests of the United States to help himself and those who worked to install him in power. Every day he remains in office, America becomes weaker.

Add your name to reject Trump’s “hereby demand” for baseless investigation into Obama administration!
