Yesterday President Donald Trump signed what is being called a ‘sweeping executive order’ to protect U.S elections from foreign meddling and interference.
It is less than TWO months from the 2018 mid-term elections and NOW is when he’s gotten around to this? Really? Action to prevent foreign interference should have been a top priority for the Trump Regime the minute they took office in January 2017…not mid-September 2018.
The 2018 elections have been going on since at least mid-2017…primaries are essentially over…interference has been going on since the whole shebang got underway last year. And it’s been no secret in Washington or the media.
“This is intended to be a very broad effort to prevent foreign manipulation of the political process,” John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser, told reporters during a briefing Wednesday.
The move comes less than two months before the 2018 midterm elections, and just weeks after Dan Coats, Trump’s director of national intelligence, warned of a “pervasive messaging campaign by Russia to try to weaken and divide the United States” before Americans go to the polls in November.
