During the years of the Cold War, Americans made it a priority to control the spread of communism, to ensure that the U.S.S.R. did not amass more power and become an empire, and stand with our allies. Now, it seems Americans need to be reminded of this as the ex-president and Fox News convince them that powerful countries with authoritarian dictators at the helm shouldn’t be allowed to gobble up other countries.

On Thursday, after Russia officially entered the country of Ukraine and occupied their lands, President Obama reminded the country in a statement that what Russia is doing is wrong, that Vladimir Putin is an opponent of democracies like the one in Ukraine, and exactly what the American principles are.

‘The consequences of Russia’s reckless actions extend beyond Ukraine’s borders. This illegal invasion in the heart of Europe also threatens the foundation of the international order and security. For some time now, we have seen the forces of division and authoritarianism make headway around the world, mounting an assault on the ideals of democracy, rule of law, equality, individual liberty, freedom of expression and worship, and self-determination. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine shows where these dangerous trends can lead – and why they cannot be left unchallenged.’

Twitter had a lot to say about the statement released by President Obama, with many agreeing that it’s time for Americans to come together as a country as we fight to preserve democracies around the world. Read some of their comments below:
