Don Beyer statement on Trump-Putin summit

Don BeyerRep. Don Beyer today issued the following statement on the summit between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

“Donald Trump’s performance at his summit with Putin today was the most astonishing display of weakness and submission that I have ever seen from an American President. Trump’s refusal to side with U.S. intelligence and law enforcement instead of a man who ordered attacks on our elections and is an enemy of human rights around the globe should have been shocking. Yet, tragically, this was more of the same self-serving fecklessness that we’ve seen time and again from President Trump. 

“The President’s public debasement of our country to Russia followed a series insults to U.S. allies, including Germany, the United Kingdom, Nato, and the E.U. This has been one of the most disastrous presidential trips abroad in history, and our country will suffer from the damage Trump has just done to America’s reputation for years to come.”

Beyer served from 2009-2013 as US Ambassador to Switzerland under President Barack Obama before being elected to Congress.
