Donald Trump headquarters deleted the item about supplying Ukraine with lethal defensive weapons from the Republican program. This was reported by an influential Washington-Post.
This document was adopted by the delegates of the National party congress. They will go to the nearest elections with this document.
According to the Washington-Post an amendment introduced concerned supplying of lethal weapons to the Ukrainian armed forces. Under the pressure of his own representatives Trump “substituted the phrase with “providing appropriate assistance”.
At that a soft position of Trump towards Russia contravenes with the positions of the majority of other Republican leaders.
As it was reported earlier a 4-day National party congress kicked off in Cleveland on Monday. Today the party is going to elect their President candidate, a billionaire Donald Trump is expected to be elected.
