The United States will continue sanctions against Russia and financial support of Ukrainian forces, President Obama announced at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House this afternoon. He did not mention sending lethal weapons to Ukraine.
This administration is a national embarrassment.
In his second term, President Obama is still passing up long-time career diplomats and nominating his biggest donors for coveted ambassadorships. His second-term nominations so far raised more than $16 million for his campaigns and inaugurations.
