The statements of American politicians about the “Russian trace” resemble an already worn-out record, and the words that the current US President Donald Trump is the “servant” of Russian leader Vladimir Putin is a symptom of the degradation of American political culture, Elena Panina, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi called US President Donald Trump a “hand maiden” of Russian President Vladimir Putin and suggested that Russia has some kind of dirt on Trump.
Panina noted that such statements about the “Russian trace” and “Putin’s agents” have been repeated for four years and resemble a “worn out vinyl record.”
“This is a symptom of the degradation of American political culture, which is becoming more and more aggressive and one-dimensional, and is losing its intellectual dimension,” Panina said.
As for Trump, the deputy continued, the impression is that the American establishment is determined to politically destroy not only him personally, but also the institution of strong presidential power in the United States as such.
“Never before has a person holding the post of US president been subjected to such humiliation as he is now – he is declared a criminal, disconnected from social networks. Apparently, this is not only about Trump, but the deliberate desire of the“ deep state ”in principle to exclude the possibility of The United States has a strong president, “Panina added.
Given the enormous military, information and economic resources of the United States, attempts to exclude a strong presidency in the United States is a dangerous trend, the parliamentarian stressed.
“The overseas superpower becomes even more dangerous and unpredictable from this,” Panina stated.
