Some context:

"August 14, 2018

President Donald Trump moved to block funding for an international surveillance treaty in his signing of a $717 billion national defense policy bill Monday, and Russian officials were quick to react.

The new law suspends funding for the Treaty on Open Skies, a pact that has allowed 34 member nations to send unarmed observation flights over one another's territory since 2002. Funding may be restored, according to the law, only after Russia is in "complete compliance with [its] obligations." Russian officials reportedly responded Tuesday by accusing the United States of breaking the treaty and even attempting to secretly build up its munitions.


The suspension of U.S. funding came after Russia cut the number of air bases the U.S. is allowed to observe, despite the treaty. Washington also accused Moscow of violating the treaty by setting a limit on the number of observational flights permitted over the militarized Kaliningrad exclave."

"US delegation refused to sign the final document..."

Why should we allow the Russians the freedom to fly their spy planes over our country?

This is one of Bill Clinton's bright ideas.

(I was thinking it was Obama until I checked.)
