At this point, I am wondering why we didn’t elect Marco Rubio:
“The Trump administration has approved the largest U.S. commercial sale of lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine since 2014. The move was heavily supported by top Trump national security Cabinet officials and Congress but may complicate President Trump’s stated ambition to work with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Administration officials confirmed that the State Department this month approved a commercial license authorizing the export of Model M107A1 Sniper Systems, ammunition, and associated parts and accessories to Ukraine, a sale valued at $41.5 million. These weapons address a specific vulnerability of Ukrainian forces fighting a Russian-backed separatist movement in two eastern provinces. There has been no approval to export the heavier weapons the Ukrainian government is asking for, such as Javelin antitank missiles. …”
When I was in Kiev in Feb, all I was told was that the tide in Donbas would shift if only they were provided Javlin anti-tank missiles. Trump just approved their transfer to Ukraine. https://t.co/TnwF1oexKw

We’ve bombed Syria, recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, decertified the Iran deal, expanded NATO to include Montenegro, imposed sanctions on Russia, tightened the embargo on Cuba, etc. So far, the only thing missing on the GOP foreign policy menu is a massive new war.
