Since socialist Bernie Sanders lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, the Democratic Party has been locked in a civil war over the direction of authoritarian politics and policies.
But there is some agreement on the left side of the aisle when it comes to President Donald Trump. According to a new Rasmussen Reports survey, the majority of Democrats believe the commander-in-chief is a traitor.
Democrats strongly defend those who think President Trump is a traitor. Other voters say they’re just playing politics with the claim.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 65% of Likely Democratic Voters believe critics of Trump’s recent meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin truly believe he is a treasonous Russian puppet.
Former CIA Director John Brennan, who was in charge of the spy agency under President Obama, made the treason charge last week after President Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinky.
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) July 16, 2018
Meanwhile, since President Trump's meeting with Putin, his approval rating has gone up. Another summit with Putin is being planned for the fall in the U.S.
In Helsinki, @POTUS agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs. President Trump asked @Ambjohnbolton to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway.— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) July 19, 2018
