“Treason!”: Trump blasted after Russia revealed to have paid Taliban bounty for US military deaths

After an explosive report in The New York Times revealed that American intelligence agencies have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing U.S. armed forces in Afghanistan, the backlash against Donald Trump erupted on social media.

With the article alleging that the president was briefed on the finding which was discussed by  Trump’s National Security Council in late March, the administration’s failure to authorize a single retaliatory step against these hostile attacks by the proxies of a foreign power on America’s soldiers inspired outrage, further accusations of Russian collusion, and demands for Trump’s ouster as Americans processed the news by sending the hashtag #TraitorTrump trending on Twitter.

Compounding the outrage over the Trump administration’s failure to sanction the Kremlin after the bounties were discovered was the fact that the president continued to call for Russia to be invited to the next G7 meeting of world leaders and that he had scarce ventilators shipped to that country to help in the treatment of their surging COVID-19 infections after the paid incentives to kill American troops were already known in intelligence circles.

Critics of the president on Twitter were savage in their assessment of Trump’s behavior, labeling it as a treasonous and cowardly abdication of his responsibility to protect American lives.

Add your name to tell states and police to reject Trump’s calls to use violence against peaceful protestors!

How many more straws can this country take before our backs are broken?

People are already out in the streets protesting, but now they have one more grievance to add to their lists.

Trump needs to be removed from office immediately and his GOP enablers voted out of power wherever they hold it.
