Trump Lacks Nerve to Confront Russia
Russian Bounty on USA Military
Date: June 29, 2020 08:05PM
Trump’s apparent failure of nerve in confronting Russian aggression reveals a man unworthy of being commander in chief. There is normally a bond between a president and the men and women who serve under his command. Those in the armed forces may be called upon for great sacrifice. But they need and deserve to be confident that their contributions will not be devalued or squandered by their commander in chief. If Trump can ignore or explain away the needless murder of men and women in uniform — if he can cynically dismiss this as a normal, acceptable cost of geopolitics — he makes a mockery of solemn obligations and sells the lives of Americans cheap.
