Cannon and McFaul argue on Twitter

Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov has responded to the post former U.S. Ambassador in Moscow Michael McFaul on Twitter.

The American diplomat in his message said that the President of the United States Donald trump is not concerned about the situation of human rights in China, Russia, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and other countries.

“I’m not even sure he cares about American democracy. Why do people think he’s sincerely committed to democratic change in Iran?” asked McFaul.

In turn, Pushkov said that actions of the former authorities in the US say that they are also little concern for democratic values.

Do you think that Obama (Barack Obama former U.S. President. — Ed.) and Hillary Clinton (former Secretary of state) was concerned about democracy in Libya? I will say. The only thing they cared about is the murder of Gaddafi. Remember the phrase Hillary: “We came, we saw, he died!”Alex Purchasedfor of the Russian Federation

Recall that in 2011, the U.S. supported the Libyan rebels, and contributed to the coup — the “Arab spring” in the country. In the result, the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed without trial.

Cannon and McFaul is not the first time to exchange views on Twitter. Previously, they discussed the Crimea, the law on mass media-registered as foreign agents in the United States and many other topics.
