Think Trump is Soft on Russians? Here's what Dem's Hero FDR Said About Stalin

What's worse, he acted on his reckless naivete and millions died or were imprisoned in Eastern Europe FOR DECADES!

Horror of the Cold War born at Yalta when FDR gave Stalin (who he described as a "Christian gentleman") everything he wanted.  By the time FDR found out he had been conned he died!
Forget what Trump said or didn't say to Putin in Helsinki. Even National Public Radio admits that Trump has taken a very hard line on Russia.  Unlike the previous eight years under Obama where we witnessed an unending catalog of appeasement. Even when it came to dealing with Russian meddling in U.S. elections, Obama's own people thought he was soft. One official admits they "choked" and other reports describe how Obama gave the "stand down" order rather than respond to Russian hacking.

But in the words of Samantha Bee, even a "feckless...." Obama wasn't the worst Democrat President where Russia concerned. Take the Dem's super hero, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Paul Kengor writing at American Spectator:
Senator John McCain described the Trump-Putin press conference in Helsinki as “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” “No prior president,” insisted McCain, “has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.”
In fact, where to begin with that case example? My colleague Daniel Flynn yesterday raised the specter of FDR at Yalta — a perfect illustration, but we can go earlier. I could expend thousands of words laying out FDR’s jaw-droppingly awful assessments of Stalin across multiple meetings, conferences, and correspondence. Some of these were spouted directly by FDR to the man he fondly called “Uncle Joe,” whereas others were shared by FDR advisers who begged the president not to trust Stalin.

One such adviser was William Bullitt, FDR’s first ambassador to the USSR, who once had been gushingly pro-Bolshevik — until he spent a few years in the Soviet Union, where he was awakened by the death stench that was Stalinism. As he did with so many advisers, FDR rejected Bullitt’s warnings: “Bill, I just have a hunch that Stalin is not that kind of man…. I think that if I give him everything I possibly can and ask nothing from him in return, noblesse oblige, he won’t try to annex anything and will work with me for a world of democracy and peace.”
Bullitt tried to tell FDR that there was no “factual evidence” that Stalin was a good man. FDR, however, saw Stalin as a “kind” man, a gentleman, one he could work with to advance democracy and peace. The president shook off Bullitt: “It’s my responsibility, not yours.”

Sure was. And the course FDR took was a disastrous one that helped pave the way for the Cold War.

Stalin had so hoodwinked the iconic New Dealer that the president mused that the mass-murdering atheist had taught him, Churchill, and other leaders of the free world something about the “way in which a Christian gentleman should behave.” Yes, Stalin, a “Christian gentleman.” FDR actually said that.
Weeks after Yalta FDR realized he had been had and wrote to Stalin expressing his disappointment. Stalin must have laughed but was never able to make good on his horrendous mistake. He died 11 days later and the Cold War which threatened the peace of the entire world was born.

Nothing Trump said at Helsinki rises to the level of the delusions of FDR where Stalin was concerned. And it hardly matters since we all understand that the current hate Trump circus isn't about Russia, but another in a series of manufactured crises designed to weaken Trump. In fact, if anyone is doing the Russian's bidding it's the hate Trump media constantly seeking to divide America based on a pathology they contracted after Hillary lost the 2016 election. Want to stop the Russians? Easy. Support TRUMP!
