Republican Leaders Say Putin Not Welcome in Capitol, But 87% of Republican Voters Want Another Trump-Putin Meeting

A recent poll found that 54% of Americans approved of Trump meeting again with Putin in the Fall, and an overwhelming 87% of Republicans backed the proposal. Nevertheless, top Republicans Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have put thumbs down on the meeting, which begs the question- who are they representing if not their constituents?

When asked about the merits of Trump’s invitation to Putin to attend a meeting in the US, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated “Well, I can only speak for the Congress. The speaker (Paul Ryan) and I have made it clear that Putin will not be welcome up here at the Capitol.”

Neither Republican Representatives McConnell nor Ryan actually are representing their constituents in this matter. A recent poll showed that 54% of those surveyed believe Trump’s proposal to host Putin in Washington, DC, in the fall is a good idea, while 87% of Republicans and 54% of independents were among those who approve of a second summit. Trump says he will postpone meeting until 2019, at the the conclusion of the Mueller investigation.

McConnell and Ryan are Neo-Cons – communists hiding in the Republican party behind an (R) symbol. They need to go.
