There have been numerous attempts by the Democrats to undermine the election of Donald Trump in 2016, most notably by insinuating that the New York City real estate mogul was somehow in cahoots with the Kremlin in order to win the White House.
Donald Trump repeatedly and vehemently denied these allegations, and a 22-month long investigation into the matter ended with no new charges for the President. Still, the Democrats and their cohorts in the mainstream media insisted that some sort of collusion existed, and that Vladimir Putin was somehow directly responsible for Trump’s rise to power.
What that Robert Mueller-led investigation did find, however, is that a shady Russian operation did exist, and that its purpose was to create chaos during the 2016 election. Putin wants a weaker America, of course, and weakening our nation’s belief in the sanctity of our elections is all a part of his plan.
He’s at it again in 2020, at least according to some experts, and President Trump is none too pleased about it.
“Another misinformation campaign is being launched by Democrats in Congress saying that Russia prefers me to any of the Do Nothing Democrat candidates who still have been unable to, after two weeks, count their votes in Iowa,” Trump tweeted, referencing the delays this month in tabulating the results of the nation’s first presidential nominating contest.
“Hoax number 7!” Trump added, suggesting that reports about the congressional briefing were akin to investigations of his campaign’s possible coordination with Russia in the 2016 election and his conduct toward Ukraine that led to his impeachment by the House and ultimate acquittal by the Senate.
President Trump has long been concerned that the appearance of a Russian preference for him somehow negates his accomplishments in the White House – something that is far from he truth.
