SPUTNIKNEWS – February 18, 2017: Speaking with Radio Sputnik, Russian lawmaker Alexei Pushkov commented on the pressure currently being mounted on United States President Donald Trump. According to Pushkov, Trump’s opponents want to tie his hands, especially in relations with Russia.
Political elites in Washington will try to do everything possible to neutralize President Trump, putting him in a situation in which he would not be able to act independently, according to senior member of the Russian parliament’s upper house Alexey Pushkov.
According to the lawmaker, in fact Trump is now being forced to continue the policy of his predecessor Barack Obama.
“This was a very heavy blow to Trump. Three weeks after his inauguration, Trump now resembles a man who cannot withstand the pressure being mounted on him. His executive orders are suspended, his policy is in limbo. Certain forces behind the scenes in Washington are blocking Trump’s decisions. […] This is a blow to the presidential powers. He was forced to accept Flynn’s resignation,” Pushkov said in an interview with Radio Sputnik.
“I think that they [the US establishment] will try to turn Trump into a copy of Barack Obama, in terms of foreign policy,” Pushkov noted. Link: Read Complete Article
