Obama promises a “smooth transition”. How does he accomplish it ? Well, by sneaking up behind Trump and biting him in the butt. “Sanctions” – what a joke. Why even the German press recognizes it for what it is: “a poisoned good-bye present” for Trump (Der Spiegel) !
Obama’s “sanctions” against Russia are no sanctions at all. They are purely designed to put Trump in the “hot seat” and have him then respond to them and or remove them. And then give the Democrats and their media minions something to carp about to the American public to try and win the next election.
Churchill was asked and he laughed, crying: “Never in the field of human conflict – have so many Americans lost so much international power and prestige by just one president.”
