With Mike Pompeo becoming Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State we can see that the administration is going to get even tougher on Russia.
As secretary of state, Pompeo will play a key role in shaping America’s overall response to Moscow, which will include strengthening sanctions, bolstering of the U.S. military presence in Europe through the NATO alliance, and supporting Ukraine in its war against Russian forces. In addition, he will oversee the U.S. response to the Russian regime’s barbaric use of chemical weapons on British soil—a direct assault on British sovereignty
Now, of course, the media doesn’t care a whole lot about this portion of the hiring. While the Russian Narrative dies they continue to push the fact that Trump is a Russian agent.
Not only did Obama ask for a complete reset in relations between the two countries before the beginning of his first term but he also failed to enforce his own red line in Syria and was weak backing Ukraine.
