Pompeo Continues Trump Admin Stance of Tough Talk Toward Russia

Pompeo Continues Trump Admin Stance of Tough Talk Toward Russia

Published

on

The Trump administration is maintaining its tough stance towards Russia, despite prevalent legacy media narratives still determined to push the RussiaGate hoax on the American people.

This time, the White House is condemning Russia’s actions in Venezuela.

Last weekend, Russia sent a plane of troops commanded by General Vasily Tonkoshkurov to Caracas. Additionally, new satellite images revealed how S-300 air defense missile systems were deployed at an airbase south of Caracas, adding more fuel to the current geopolitical tensions in Venezuela.

Russia’s deployment of troops along with an alleged 35 tons of cargo has caused US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to denounce Russia’s recent actions. Pompeo urged Russia to “cease its unconstructive behavior”.

Reuters reports that Pompeo delivered this message directly through a phone call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. State Department spokesman Robert Palladino detailed what took place in this phone call:

The secretary told Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov that the United States and regional countries will not stand idly by as Russia exacerbates tensions in Venezuela.

Palladino then detailed that Pompeo specifically singled Russia out for its military support for the “illegitimate regime of Nicolas Maduro.”

The socialist country’s economic collapse has received considerable coverage internationally in the past few months. With the latest presidential crisis emerging in Venezuela, the U.S. has taken a tougher stance on the socialist country, as evidenced by national security advisor John Bolton’s increasingly tougher rhetoric and new sanctions on Venezuela.

Some commentators like Bonnie Kristian argue that “This is a humanitarian crisis, not a security threat.” Kristian also added that “American military might is not the solution to Venezuela’s woes, and even calling for this sort of intervention may exacerbate an already horrifying situation.”

Despite two years of media accusations of the Trump Administration colluding with Russia, the Trump administration’s latest actions in Venezuela show that they are maintaining their tough stance against the global superpower.

In fact,  a few weeks ago, the Trump administration sanctioned numerous Russian officials and companies for their military activities in Ukraine.

No matter what the media say, it appears the Trump administration is maintaining the D.C. foreign policy consensus on countering Russian foreign policy interests wherever it can.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
