But as usual, that was just more left-wing projection since Marxist Democrats always accuse their political opponents of what they do.
It turned out that Trump became the "peace president." During his term, his administration brokered several historic peace deals between Israel and Arab rivals, as well as between historical enemies in eastern Europe. He made peaceful overtures to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and actually became the first U.S. president to meet with a North Korean leader since the end of the Korean War in 1953. And Trump wanted to reach out to Russian President Vladimir Putin, often saying on the campaign trail that having a mega-nuclear-armed Russia on our side instead of the side of our enemies was inherently in our best interests, but he could not because that plan was torpedoed by the deep state left with a phony "election collusion" narrative.
Now, those same deep-state Marxists have successfully beaten back the most liberal Democrats in the party after 30 of them signed a letter imploring The Installed One, Joe Biden, to find a negotiated settlement in the war between Russia and Ukraine before that conflict goes nuclear.
In the letter, the 30 Democrats led by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, call on Biden to pair the unprecedented economic and military support the United States is providing Ukraine with a “proactive diplomatic push, redoubling efforts to seek a realistic framework for a cease fire.”
The Democrats are specifically concerned that the United States is not engaging in regular dialogue with Russia as part of its effort to end a protracted war that has caused thousands of deaths and displaced 13 million people. The Biden administration has been adamant that it is up to Kyiv whether and when to negotiate with Russia, arguing that Ukrainians as a free people should decide their fate.
“Let me be clear: we are united as Democrats in our unequivocal commitment to supporting Ukraine in their fight for their democracy and freedom in the face of the illegal and outrageous Russian invasion,” Jayapal said. “Diplomacy is an important tool that can save lives — but it is just one tool.
“The alternative to diplomacy is protracted war, with both its attendant certainties and catastrophic and unknowable risks," the letter continued.
But less than 24 hours later, the group of progressives had been cowered into submitting to the deep-state anti-Russian war hawks in both parties -- claiming that the letter was sent to the White House by mistake.
"The Congressional Progressive Caucus hereby withdraws its recent letter to the White House regarding Ukraine," the retraction began.
"The letter was drafted several months ago, but unfortunately was released by staff without vetting. As Chair of the Caucus, I accept responsibility for this," Jayapal wrote, before pivoting to blame Republicans because, of course.
"Because of the timing, our message is being conflated by some as being equivalent to the recent statement by Republican Leader McCarthy threatening an end to aid to Ukraine if Republicans take over," she wrote. The proximity of these statements created the unfortunate appearance that Democrats, who have strongly and unanimously supported and voted for every package of military, strategic, and economic assistance to the Ukrainian people, are somehow aligned with Republicans who seek to pull the plug on American support for President Zelensky and the Ukrainian forces."
Journalist Glenn Greenwald mocked Jayapal and her cowardly band of leftists online.
"They couldn't even hold out for *24 hours*. What a complete humiliation. Joe Crowley must be sitting in his lobbyist office cackling each time this happens," he tweeted, referencing the former New York Democrat who had a lead role in the party when he was defeated in a Democratic primary in 2018 by now-Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
