His opponents were calling Donald Trump a puppet of Vladimir Putin before he was even elected and continued doing so despite anti-Russian policies such as furnishing Ukraine with lethal arms, something the Obama administration had refused to do. And Trump would have been called a puppet for allowing the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which will make Russia rich selling natural gas.
The thing is, it was President Biden who dropped the sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline (while killing construction of our own Keystone XL pipeline), so he wasn’t bowing to Putin. Why then? Well, because it’s almost complete, so, why not?

Keystone pipeline is almost completed

The border wall is almost completed as well.

Keystone was completed (or close), yet you chose to close that one down. That’s counterproductive of our OWN relations…but you didn’t care

How does that make any sense? You could argue that the Keystone pipeline was also “almost completed”.

You know, they almost have control of Ukraine anyway

What an idiot. The sanctions were already in place for crying out loud.

This imbecile needs to be impeached. He hasn’t a single clue what he’s doing or talking about.

What an idiot. Stopping U.S. pipelines that are almost finished is counter-productive in terms relations with your own CITIZENS. Dolt.

‘Is this good now?’ When can we expect the usual suspects to sound the ‘collusion’ alarm over this report on Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin? https://t.co/xIgicL2RWG
