The media and liberal Democrats (along with RINO Republicans) have been very critical of the Trump administration’s dealings with Russians. Even going so far as to accuse Trump of being an agent for Russia. For the sake of comparison, I compiled the list of Obama’s actions on Russian meddling in the election.
Obama: 1 had Susan Rice give the “Stand Down” order to allow them to do whatever they wanted.
• In May 2017 Trump signed an Executive Order to strengthen and review the nation’s cybersecurity and its critical infrastructure, including a long-delayed modernization of cybersecurity systems across the federal government.
• The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is working with all 50 states, local governments, and private companies to improve election security and integrity.
• DHS will provide on-site risk and vulnerability assessments for any states that request an assessment. To date, 18 States have asked for an assessment and 16 have already been completed ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, according to the White House.
• A pilot program has been launched to share information between state and local officials and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to allow for rapid response on midterm election day.
• During the 2017 elections, the Trump administration provided on-site cybersecurity support to states at their request.
• In March 2018 Congress provided the EAC with $380 million in funding for election assistance grants to states.
• In March 2018 the administration imposed sanctions against 16 Russian entities and individuals for their roles in Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
• The Trump administration has maintained the closure of two Russian compounds and the expulsion of 35 diplomats in response to Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Above all, if taking Russians seriously, which list would you follow? And remember, President Trump bombed the hell out of Russian mercenaries in Syria. Would someone working for Russia dare to do that? Obama didn’t.
