Russia Is Testing Trump. What Is He Going to Do About It?

Article from; Commentary from the Editorial Board


(Parody image: NBC/’Saturday Night Live’)

Mr. President: As reported in the accompanying news story from, the Russians are testing you with a series of provocative military moves. What are you going to do about it?

In our view, this is exactly what happens when the President of the United States is not respected by other world leaders, and when his national security team is floundering in disarray. One thing is sure, and that is our rivals and our adversaries around the world, including the Chinese, the Iranians and the North Koreans, are keenly watching the situation. They will be emboldened by any perceived weakness on your part.

It seems to us that Vladimir Putin has got you by a certain part of your anatomy, is squeezing hard, and is not about to let go any time soon. (Similar to being ‘grabbed by the pussy,’ but with hands that aren’t quite so tiny.)

Why haven’t you done anything about it? Is there something that the American people should know, something that might be explained by the contents of the now-infamous ‘dossier,’ or perhaps by information in the tax returns that you have so far refused to disclose?
