“The 1980s called. They want their foreign policy back.” Remember when Obama responded to Romney with that zinger. The problem Democrats had was that Romney named Russia as the biggest geopolitical foe to the United States. So why are Democrats now freaking out that Trump is trying to have friendlier relations with Russia?
It can’t be just that Russia is a bad guy. Because Democrats responded in the exact opposite way with Trump’s posturing toward China. Apparently they want him to be tough with Russia because Russia is bad. But they want him to be nice to China. Because China is good?
The more likely explanation is that they are simply against anything Trump does.
