Jan. 30, 2018 Tweet - "Any other President would have already made it their priority to take decisive action against Russia in their first year. But this President is paralyzed when it comes to Putin & his cronies in Russia. @realDonaldTrump may not say "Russia sanctions" tonight, but he ought to."
