The Pentagon Had Been”Pounding Down the Door” for Trump To Respond to Russian Bounties on U.S. Soldiers

Pentagon officials tried desperately for President Donald Trump to do something about Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers. That is based on The Washington Post‘s David Ignatius.

Ignatius talked to MSNBC’s Morning Joe program on Monday. He said the Pentagon had attempted to convince the President to behave but he’d neglected to do so,

“According to my coverage attempting to affirm The New York Times‘ excellent narrative it is apparent in late March you’d grownup U.S commanders, senior civilian intelligence officers, in effect thumping on the door of the White House saying we will need to do something about it,” Ignatius said.

“We will need to come to some decision about what harm the Russian program is currently doing, we will need to reassess our applications from Afghanistan and they could not get a response.”

“For this day there isn’t a response, there is not a true response” he explained.

“Was this since that the President was briefed and did nothing or since he was not briefed since people were scared to give him bad news and kept it to themselves? I really don’t understand.”

“However, it almost does not matter regarding the breakdown concerning how in which the government is supposed to do the job.”

“In certain ways, it is almost worse that the department did not inform him’Mr. President while you are inviting Russia to rejoin the G8, we ought to mention Russia is placing bounties on the heads of American soldiers’ If they did not inform him that, it is a stunner.”

President Trump has denied that he understood about Russia offering bounties for the deaths of both U.S. soldiers. He has also promised that the story is not credible.
