Hillary Clinton is still trying to make sense of her loss to President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Democrats used to blame President George W. Bush for just about everything that appeared to go wrong around the world, now it’s all Trump’s fault. But to Clinton, it’s both Trump and Russia’ Vladimir Putin’s fault she lost.
Clinton recently tweeted that Putin has “waged a 30-year campaign” against the world, but still fails to tell us how she and President Obama kept the former KGB officer in check when they held the reigns of the federal government.
They didn’t. Putin was emboldened by their failed and weak-minded foreign policy.
During the Obama/Clinton years, Russia’s Putin came into his own and became the de facto leader of the world.
“Well. He certainly interfered in our election, and it was clear he interfered to hurt me and help my opponent,” Clinton said. “Look, I think Russia is a great country. I think the Russian people are extraordinarily talented, and I think they are badly governed.”-Clinton for Elle magazine
Vladimir Putin has waged a 30-year campaign to disrupt world events, including our last election. I talked about it in @ActMeasuresDoc, a fascinating summation of the Russia story that premieres today: https://t.co/E0t1JeSssA
