Hunt to call on Trump to impose fresh sanctions on Russia

Source: Guardian


UK foreign secretary will also ask US president to tighten rules on online election advertising

The British foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, is to urge Donald Trump to face down Moscow’s threat to western values by imposing wider economic sanctions against Russia and agreeing new rules to protect the legitimacy of democratic elections.

In a speech in Washington on Tuesday during his first visit since taking over from Boris Johnson as the UK’s most senior diplomat, Hunt will specifically call for tighter regulation of online political advertising and new measures to prevent cyber attacks on electoral machinery.

Hunt will also throw out a challenge to Trump’s protectionist policies by warning a weakening of free trade will only damage western economies, and ultimately western political power. He will say the emergence of an international order based on the application of law rather than might had led to an exponential growth in trade, leading to extraordinary advances in economic and social prosperity across the globe.

He will also call for Nato to set clearer red lines about Russia’s use of chemical weapons and incursions into foreign territory such as the annexation of Crimea in 2014.

1. Sorry England Trump Has Already Surrendered To Putin - Russians Can Do As They Please

 

Trump won't even send help to counties to harden their voting/tabulation systems, even if they know the Russians have tried to hack them.

2. republican misleader Dirty Donny* enraged about possible caviar cutback

"As an elite republican a-hole, the only damn thing I am going to FACE DOWN is a couple of buckets of deluxe russian caviar while I am luxuriating for free on yet another golden, gourmet, glorious golf course (thanks to US tax dollars!). So you former allies like England can just go feed your faces with figgy pudding, or some other shit." - Dirty Donny* (R)
