Trump betrayed the United States

It used to be said that politics should stop at the water’s edge and that Americans ought not criticize the president while he is overseas conducting diplomacy. Those days are long gone. Instead, our president went overseas and betrayed the United States, live on TV, in front of Vladimir Putin, God and everybody.

Gov. Kim Reynolds, Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst and Reps. David Young, Rod Blum and Steve King, and all Republicans across Iowa and the nation now have a stark choice. They can support President Donald Trump or they can support the United States of America. They cannot honestly do both.
