MSNBC’s Haq: ‘We Have a President of the United States Who Is Executing Russian Policy’ and ‘Putting Out Kremlin Lines’

‘We lost our secretary of defense because the President of the United States decided Russian perspective of what happened in Syria and backing the Assad regime was more important’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HAQ: “It used to be the united States was not operating on equal footing with many parts of the world but dominating. Now we have a president of the United States executing Russian policy and putting out Kremlin lines about how we should be throughout the rest of the world, Syria withdrawal was shocking to everybody including our own military. We lost our secretary of defense because the president of the United States decided Russian perspective what happened in Syria and backing the Assad regime was more important. Randomly the president decides to talk about how Russian intervention in Afghanistan 20 years ago was justified even though the president of the United States at the time, Ronald Reagan, was on the opposite side. This goes well beyond any party lines and party traditions. He is now executing the Russian policy and a Russian spy who got into the NRA talking about how white nationalists can be empowered and the department of justice decided white nationalists were no longer the bigger threat to the united States. All of this is what Putin does in his own country and would like to now see the united States as an extension of Russia.”
