The Trump-Putin relationship
puts U.S. democracy & alliances at risk.
We pledge to stay vigilant.

AMERICAN DEMOCRACY TAKES AN AUTHORITARIAN TURN

There is overwhelming evidence that a Donald Trump presidency will put U.S. democracy and national security interests at risk. Trump’s cozy relationship and lavish praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump’s criticism of the historic U.S. alliance with NATO partners, his invitation to Russian hackers to meddle in the presidential election, and his campaign staff’s financial ties to pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine all pose a danger to vital national interests.

Through this election season, we at PutinTrump.org have sought to analyze and raise awareness on this critical set of issues. The breadth of analysis, news and opinion are posted as resources on this site for fellow Americans concerned about this threat to our democracy.

Putin and Trump:
An Alarming Partnership

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump share striking worldviews that are both dire and dangerous—not just for our two countries but for the world.
Contempt for NATO, xenophobia and a move toward censorship are all ways to cut us off from other nations, to abandon our long-time allies and destroy our place of importance on the world stage.

“NATO is strengthening its aggressive rhetoric and its aggressive actions near our borders. In these conditions, we are duty-bound to pay special attention to solving the task of strengthening the combat readiness of our country.”
- Putin, Jun 22, 2016
"I think that NATO may be obsolete....It doesn't really help us. It's helping other countries. And I don't think those other countries appreciate what we are doing."
- Trump, Mar 22, 2016
"He is a flamboyant and talented person without any doubt… an outstanding and talented personality."
- Putin, Jan 14, 2016
"It is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond."
- Trump, Dec 17, 2015
"We're of course ready to put out a hand of help and friendship to any of our partners, if they want that."
- Putin, Apr 12, 2016
"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”
- Trump, Jul 27, 2016
“He says he wants to move on to a new, more substantial relationship, a deeper relationship with Russia, how can we not welcome that? Of course we welcome that."
- Putin, Dec 17, 2015
"I think I'd get along very well with Vladimir Putin. I just think so."
- Trump, Jul 30, 2015
"[Trump is] the absolute leader of the presidential race.”
- Putin, Dec 17, 2015
"I think [Putin’s] done a really great job of outsmarting our country.”
- Trump, Oct 3, 2013
"[Trump is] a more cooperative partner in Syria who shares his view that ISIS, not Russia, is the real threat."
- Putin, Jul 27, 2016
“You have to take out their families. When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself. But they say they don’t care about their lives. You have to take out their families.”
- Trump, Dec 1, 2015
