Ukraine / Putin / Trump
The case for supporting Ukraine’s resistance to Russian aggression is overwhelming. Why are so many Republicans intent on blocking funds for this cause? Apparently, they hold this position because Trump does, and to maintain support from MAGA cult voters, they have to do Trump’s bidding. Trump favors cutting off aid to Ukraine because he wants to stay in Putin’s good graces. Putin helped Trump win the 2016 election, and it’s certain he’ll do what he can to help Trump win in 2024. Trump is an aspiring dictator. Putin is his role model. Republicans impeding U.S. efforts to support Ukraine have volunteered to be their servants.
