Remember when Obama was working with Russia to weaken NATO ? How about that time when he ridiculed Romney for stating Russia was a threat ? Trump is wrong and has always been wrong about Putin and Russia, but your side is just as guilty of that shit.Seems that we have a bunch of right wingers with Amnesia.
Europe Needs to Push Back Against Trump
In the last three years, the Trump administration has fractured the United States’ relationship with its European partners. The most recent manifestation of this was the sudden decision to remove 9,500 U.S. troops from Germany by September, a move that sent shockwaves through NATO.
But this is just one of many instances in which the United States has shown disregard for the wishes and concerns of European partners. Despite international pushback, Washington withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in 2019 and this May announced its intentions to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty.
After the bombshell revelations from former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s book, European fears of American abandonment seem more probable than ever. This includes the possibility of being trapped by the often quixotic foreign-policy decisions emanating from Washington. For example, the abrupt decision last fall to remove U.S. Special Forces from northern Syria both disheartened Kurdish forces and also caught Europe off guard. In light of this, trans-Atlantic partners are walking on eggshells with the Trump administration. But this excessive caution has serious negative consequences, as reluctance to push the United States to uphold the structures that are the backbone of European security could ultimately undermine its position and weaken the trans-Atlantic alliance. Europe should leverage American domestic support for the alliance by working with congressional leaders to secure long-term cooperation.

This is what trump was doing for all of you who seem to have amnesia. So to say that Putin would not be doing this if trump was president is laughable. Trump bought into false information about Ukraine from Putin. Remember Crowdstrike?
“This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves,”-Fiona Hill
President Donald Trump called into "Fox & Friends" a day after the impeachment hearings ended and repeated false statements that have been debunked by fact-checkers and, in some cases, members of his own administration.www.factcheck.org
But if trump was president now Putin would not be doing this...
Donald Trump’s Ukraine Scandal Has Its Roots in Russia

If Donald Trump Had Won 'Russians Would Already Be in Kyiv,' John Bolton Says
Ex-White House national security advisor John Bolton suggested that former President Donald Trump would have "given Ukraine away" had he won the 2020 presidential election and was serving a second term during the current standoff with Russia.
Bolton told Newsweek that a second Trump term would likely have seen the former president double down on the conspiracy theories that poisoned his administration's ties with Kyiv and led to his first of two impeachments.
"I think he would have given Ukraine away, basically," Bolton told Newsweek. "Until they turn over that Democratic National Committee server and find out what Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine, Ukraine was going to fend for itself."

John Bolton is no liberal.
Trump signed his deal with the Taliban in February of 2020.The French and Brits are no longer on speaking terms with Biden. He alienated our 2 longest allies. That's not because of Orange Man, that was because of the sudden, poorly planned Unconditional Surrender of Afghanistan
