Hillary Clinton Warns Americans Of Trump Advancing The Interests Of Vladimir Putin


Responding on X, the social media platform formerly called Twitter, to reporting on allegations of Donald Trump’s intentions to wind down the United States’ security assistance for Ukraine in the event he’s elected president (again), Hillary Clinton lumped Trump’s campaign with the ambitions of Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

The connection comes via the war currently raging in Ukraine, where the Eastern European country’s defense forces continue fighting a Russian invasion. Ukrainian personnel have reportedly faced supply shortages amid recent delays in Congress to secure new aid from the United States. And as Russian leadership continues its campaign, some worry that a victorious Russia could move beyond Ukraine to target North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) members, presumably drawing in the United States. In other words, some argue the U.S. has a strategic interest atop the humanitarian concerns in assisting Ukraine, which has prominently involved weapons deliveries.

“It’s becoming clearer every day: A vote for Trump is a vote for Team Putin,” Clinton wrote online this week.

The Senate passed an expansive foreign aid package that includes tens of billions of dollars worth of new assistance for Ukraine, but amid Republicans complaining both about the border here domestically and, in some circles, the prospect of giving additional assistance to Ukraine at all, the deal is facing delays in the GOP-controlled U.S. House. Speaker of the House Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) is facing extensive pressure over the delays.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk addressed the Congressional hold-up on the occasion of a recent trip to Washington, D.C., to meet with President Joe Biden. The Polish president also joined their overseas trip. “This is not some political skirmish that only matters here in America,” he reportedly said, discussing the back-and-forth over the aid. “The absence of this positive decision of Mr. Johnson will really cost thousands of lives there: children, women. He must be aware of his personal responsibility.”
