Oh the Democrats. Their latest weapon in their bag of tricks to use against Trump is the North Korea sanctions. The same sanctions they agree with using.
Now they are saying that we should be negotiating with North Korea, and getting tougher with Russia, placing harsher sanctions on them instead.
Their reasoning is because Russia attacked our democracy by trying to interfere with out elections. That interference was in the form of some email phishing scams, and promoting politically driven memes on Facebook.
I guess the Democrats think that's more dangerous to us than a crazy dictator threatening us with nuclear weapons.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: President Trump’s latest effort to pressure North Korea into abandoning its nuclear weapons program is drawing Democratic criticism, even from proponents of the sanctions pressure.
Lawmakers in both parties favor using sanctions to increase pressure on North Korea, a strategy that Congress reinforced by passing new sanctions legislation last year. But the North Korea crisis is happening in parallel with the controversy over Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Democrats have urged Trump to negotiate more willingly with North Korea and sanction Russia more aggressively, and they reiterated both points Friday.
“Trumpeting more sanctions as a get-tough tactic against North Korea makes it even stranger that this White House refuses to use sanctions against Russia in response to an attack on our democracy,” New York Rep. Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, said Friday.
