Trump has done quite a bit to say that his ties to Russia are “nothing”, and has even gone so far to praise Russian President Putin. Â The level of disturbing that Trump is okay with is truly maddening.
That’s what makes what’s going on over in Chechnya even more disturbing. Â Gay men and lesbians are being rounded up and sent to concentration camps in an effort to get rid of GLBT people in Chechnya. Â Their leader, President Kadyrov has promised to get rid of all gay people before the Muslim holy month Ramadan begins. Â The United States has pressured Russia to do something about it, because Chechnya is a Russian-aligned state, and they very much have pull there. Â But Putin’s Russia said there is no evidence that anything bad is going on.
Trump could do more, but he assuredly won’t. Â The only person doing anything good in the name of the United States is UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Â She continues to push, and – dare I say – sounds more presidential than the Orange one does. Â She’s doing respectful work, and not trying to get rich off of their office like CHEETUSÂ is doing.
Let’s just hope she can do some good. Â Four people have already been killed, and with hundreds rounded up, the situation could get very, very much worse before it gets better.
