President Trump will withdraw US from Open Skies treaty with Russia

In a move that has already drawn cries of outrage from across the media, President Trump has ordered that the US withdraw from the “Open Skies” treaty, a so-called disarmament treaty that allowed Russian planes to fly over the US with sensor equipment.

To all the Democrats that claimed Trump was an “agent of Putin” – what now?

The New York Times reports:

American officials have long complained that Moscow was violating the Open Skies accord by not permitting flights over a city where it was believed Russia was deploying nuclear weapons that could reach Europe, as well as forbidding flights over major Russian military exercises.

And, in classified reports, the Pentagon and American intelligence agencies have contended the Russians are also using flights over the United States to map out critical American infrastructure that could be hit by cyberattacks.

Unlike the fake Russian collusion “scandal,” Russian planes with sensitive equipment designed to map out US infrastructure sure sounds pretty threatening to me. I can’t believe we ever had such a treaty in the first place.

Trump’s move is a strong warning to Russia, and also a strategic shot across China’s bow, which administration officials had been pressuring to join the treaty. Both Putin and Xi sought to use the treaty in a one-sided manner, something which Trump is determined to put a stop to.

Now, without a hint of irony, many in the media and on the left are criticizing Trump’s move. Why is it ok for them to take Putin’s side?

  1. When was this signed and what idiot presented it. Thank God we have President Trump as our leader in Washington. This was a stupid agreement with a country that can’t be trusted. Democrats are the idiots of Washington and are attempting to sell our souls to the socialists and communists. Everyone needs to wake up to what has been going on with the swamp in Washington.

    1. Signed March 24, 1992, the Open Skies Treaty permits each state-party to conduct short-notice, unarmed, reconnaissance flights over the others’ entire territories to collect data on military forces and activities. Observation aircraft used to fly the missions must be equipped with sensors that enable the observing party to identify significant military equipment, such as artillery, fighter aircraft, and armored combat vehicles. Though satellites can provide the same, and even more detailed, information, not all of the 34 treaty states-parties1 have such capabilities. The treaty is also aimed at building confidence and familiarity among states-parties through their participation in the overflights. This would have been signed by William Jefferson Clinton and ratified by the Senate!

  2. The Democratic,Socialist / Communist Party is a total discrace to America and the real American legal citizens. Peloise and all her cronies doesn’t want America to open and go back to the success it was under President Trump. The Democrats main goals are, letting in millions of illegals, paying them on-going stimulus checks, Completely free benefits, such as social security, paid healthcare, any and all avavilable and no cost to them. The Democrats basically want to sell America as we know it. Hoping it will turn into a socialist 3rd world country. (IN OTHER WORDS THE GOVERNMENT CONTROLS AND TELLS ALL. DO, SAY, AC, LIVE ETC, in other words be the government’s pupetts, JUST OBEY THEM!!!

    1. You are completely right, and if people don’t wake up and stand with Trump, It going to get pretty bad in the USA. I don’t want to go back to that life. I was raised like that. Man that was terrible. No electric or running water a very few jobs that don’t pay enough to raise a family own. I pray ever day that Trump gets re-elected so at least my grandchildren will have an education and a good life. Thank you for telling it like it will be.

  4. Trump is absolutely correct in withdrawing us from a one sided agreement and the news media needs to take a hike. Once again they have shown just how un-american they can be. Once Trump was in collusion with Russia now he is putting us in danger by disagreeing with him. Just where do they stand ? My opinion they are out of touch with reality.

  5. Thank you President Trump for looking out for us. USA OF AMERICA. We appreciate it more than we can say. Keep digging and finding more things to straighten out. God bless you. You work so hard and such long hours and to think the DemocRATS Don’t even appreciate you. We the sensible people do.πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ™β€οΈ
