The United States Uproar on Foreign Interference in Its Elections: My brothers and sisters from the US, Join the club
I have been following the uproar around alleged foreign interference in the US Presidential elections, gleefully. It is called Elections intervention when it happens to countries in Africa by hte way.
The two countries that could have or have allegedly interfered in the US most recent and upcoming elections are Russia and Ukraine. Interesting that Russia and Ukraine are accused of the same given that they are at loggerheads.
Well back to the issue of Americans uproar regarding foreign interference in the US elections. Not sure yet what the uproar is about?
The issue is that ‘The Russian government interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election with the goal of harming the campaign of Hillary Clinton, boosting the candidacy of Donald Trump, and increasing political and social discord in the United States.’ (Wikipedia).
What is the problem with this? Is it that foreign countries are allegedly interfering in the United States election? Oh mine, this is unheard of, - something the United States would never do and have never done.
Or, in the case with Ukraine, is it that the US President is using foreign aid as a coercive tool, in withholding 250 million military aid from Ukraine to get the Ukraine’s President to investigate a political opponent? Oh no!
The politicization of Aid? Wow, shocking! This is something the United States has never done and would never do.
