L'administration Trump inspire la peur. Voici pourquoi. (E.J. Dionne, Washington Post)


Je ne peux qu'espérer qu'on continue un travail de fond pour démontrer à quel point le Président désigné représente un risque. Dionne revient ici sur le comportement de Trump à l'égard du piratage de l'élection et sur la nomination potentielle de Rex Tillerson au Secrétariat d'état. Difficile de passer sous silence les énormités que nous lisons et/ou entendons depuis le début de l'élection 2016...

 "Nor was it reassuring that a day after the story about the CIA’s finding broke, Trump’s inner circle leaked that his likely choice as secretary of state was Rex Tillerson, the ExxonMobil chairman and chief executive who had negotiated oil deals with Putin. For Tillerson’s efforts, Putin awarded him Russia’s Order of Friendship. “Friends and associates said few U.S. citizens are closer to Mr. Putin than Mr. Tillerson,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

Is it paranoid to want to know whether Tillerson’s ties to Putin are why he is at the top of Trump’s list to be our top diplomat? Is it out of line to wonder, given Trump’s lack of transparency about his finances, what role Russia has played in his business empire? After all, his son Donald Trump Jr. said in 2008 that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets” and added: “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.” Now more than ever, we need to know exactly what he was talking about.
