If you ask a Democrat: “Which American President in the 21st century did the most to empower Russia?” 10 out of 10 will tell you: “Trump”
…but the correct answer is: Obama.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane:
1️⃣ The “Russian reset”: When Obama took office, he naively vowed to try and reset relationships with America’s adversaries. He sent his Secretary of State [Hillary Clinton] to Geneva to meet with her Russian counterpart. She brought with her a red button that said “reset” on it in English and Russian. But in an almost poetic twist, the Russian version had been misspelled and instead translated to “overload.”
2️⃣ During his first year in office, President Obama canceled plans to put ground-based missile defense interceptors in Poland and the Czech Republic. Why? Because Russia saw it as a provocation. Even though missile interceptors are defensive only – only useful if Russia launched an attack. Nevertheless, Obama capitulated.
3️⃣ The Uranium One scandal: In 2013 Obama green-lit the transfer of control over 20% of U.S. uranium-mining capacity to Russia. Uranium is, of course, the key ingredient in nuclear weapons.
The kicker here is that Hillary Clinton, Obama’s Secretary of State, green-lit the sale. And it was later discovered that Russian businesspeople with close financial ties to Uranium One donated millions to the Clinton Foundation before and after the sale.
4️⃣ Russia’s Silicon Valley: In 2012, the Obama administration, helped Russia create Skolkovo – an innovation city near Moscow, modeled after our Silicon Valley. The U.S. encouraged American companies and venture capitalists to assist Russia. Even Cisco, Google, and Intel got involved in propping up Russia’s tech hub.
5️⃣ The Iran deal: Yes, this also goes back to Russia. In 2015 the Obama administration agreed to the Iran Deal, which would allow Iran to ultimately have nuclear weapons by 2030. Meanwhile, Russia is the contractor for Iran’s largest nuclear reactor. Right before the Iran Deal, Russia and Iran signed an agreement to build between 2 and 8 nuclear actors along the Persian Gulf.
Let’s not forget that in 2012, Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Russian President Dimitry Medvedev: “After my election, I have more flexibility.” Medvedev replied that he would “transmit this information to Vladimir.”
