Kirsters Baish| The mainstream media and liberals of our country have been trying to convince the masses that President Donald Trump is a traitor and somehow committed treason, all because he opted not to publicly condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for claiming that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 United States presidential election.
The left has been trying to convince Americans that Trump is somehow sucking up to Putin since even before he was elected President over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Things really got hostile when Trump met with Putin this month.
Conservative Tribune explains:
Many pundits became borderline hysterical, alleging that Trump had committed a grave sin by trying to have a positive relationship with one of the most powerful nations on earth and trying to find diplomatic solutions to conflict.
The increasingly liberal Time Magazine went as far as to release a cover with a disturbing image of Trump morphing into Putin, the implication being that the American president was caving to Russia and allowing the opposing country to become too powerful.
It really seems to be a trend among Democrats to have short term memory, but thankfully President Trump has a big Twitter presence, and is here to remind everyone about a 2010 video featuring Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Will the Dems and Fake News ever learn? This is classic!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
The video is currently eight years old, but came from an interview conducted by First Channel Television. Townhall reports that First Channel Television is owned, in part, by the Russian government.
Clinton sounds an awful lot like Donald Trump in the interview… in fact, she seemed to want to make friends with Russia. She claimed that a “strong Russia” would be great for our country and our allies.
“We want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, confident, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world,” she can be heard in the video.
So, why didn’t Democrats call Clinton a traitor or claim that she was treasonous back then? That’s exactly what they’re doing to President Trump right now.
Clinton didn’t waste much time trying to defend herself. She hopped on Twitter and wrote in response to the video, “That’s a clip from when Medvedev was president.” She was attempting to imply that working on building a “strong Russia” was okay under different leadership, but now that Putin is President, it is no longer a positive thing.
