It has been confirmed that Donald Trump is directly being fed and is repeating Putin lies and propaganda at his rallies under the disguise of making America great again.
Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald uncovered an instance of Trump reading propaganda directly from Putin at a recent campaign rally in Pennsylvania. The Russians took a story that Eichenwald wrote and turned into a “John Podesta email” that hours later Trump read on stage at his rally.
Eichenwald wrote that Putin is directly feeding lies to Trump:
The Russians engage in a sloppy disinformation effort and, before the day is out, the Republican nominee for president is standing on a stage reciting the manufactured story as truth. How did this happen? Who in the Trump campaign was feeding him falsehoods straight from the Kremlin?
The Russians have been obtaining American emails and now are presenting complete misrepresentations of them—falsifying them—in hopes of setting off a cascade of events that might change the outcome of the presidential election. The big question, of course, is why are the Russians working so hard to damage Clinton and, in the process, aid Donald Trump? That is a topic for another time.
Every American should be troubled by this development. Putin has moved beyond dabbling in the election by hacking the DNC to using his Trump puppet to inject Russian propaganda into US media. It should be noted that emails that Wikileaks is leaking are being falsified by the Russian government, so the information that is being put out there as leaked news may not be accurate.
Beyond being a misogynist who brags about sexual assault, it has now been proven that Donald Trump is getting fed propaganda from Putin.
Through his candidacy, Donald Trump is damaging US national security. We now that make America great is code for back to the USSR.
