WE BELIEVE DONALD TRUMP’S LAVISH PRAISE OF RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN, HIS CRITICISM OF OUR STRATEGIC NATO ALLIANCE, AND HIS CAMPAIGN STAFF’S CLOSE FINANCIAL TIES TO PRO-RUSSIAN POLITICIANS IN UKRAINE PUT OUR NATIONAL SECURITY INTERESTS AT RISK.
What is behind Trump’s unprecedented dalliance with a dictator? Why would he give a free pass to Russia’s annexation of the Crimea and possible moves against the Baltic States who are members of the NATO Alliance? We seek to publish the answers to these troubling questions, while calling attention to this very real threat to American democracy. Trump’s repeated views go against 70 years of bipartisan foreign policy consensus. We want to raise questions about Trump’s policy pronouncements and provide answers for the vast numbers of American voters we believe share our national security concerns.
