The comments by John T. Bodnar (letter to the editor, June 18) regarding President Donald Trump reminds me of the rhetoric of comrade Joseph Stalin when speaking of the kulaks: There is no longer any doubt; it is common knowledge; the facts are blatant and overwhelming; etc.
Mr. Bodnar is wrong.
There is no evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. After all the hype and fake news, no crime has been committed by President Trump or his campaign.
That the Russians were seeking to interfere in the election was known by President Barack Obama and his staff by August 2016. That he did nothing about it is also known. He acted the same way when Russia grabbed Crimea in 2014. His inaction and weakness, and refusal to help arm Ukraine was an acceptance of Vladimir Putin’s aggression. He was no friend of Ukraine.
President Trump, on the other hand, is building up our armed forces and will be a strong friend of Ukraine and an effective force against Mr. Putin’s aggression.
