There have been several actions President Donald Trump has not been afraid to take against Russia, but there are many issues that the United States and Russia could tackle together through a summit between their two leaders, presidential Counselor Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday.
National Security Adviser John Bolton is in Moscow to discuss U.S.-Russia relations, Conway confirmed on Fox News' "Fox and Friends," but "also to prepare for a prospective summit between the two leaders."
Trump, however, has taken actions including sanctions, expelling Russians from the United States, a as well as acting against Syria and its leader, Bashar al-Assad.
"The president made clear when he sat down with Putin last year, that if there are big issues the two countries can work on together, he's willing to entertain working together on those issues," said Conway. "You saw him in Singapore...a president who again and again is willing to go where other presidents refused to go and make good on the promise of peace, in this case denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and many issues that perhaps the United States and Russia can tackle together."
Conway also spoke about Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley's loss to newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, describing the winner as having policies that are not only left of Crowley's, but "stark left of America's."
"Every Democratic candidate could be asked now, maybe, do you agree or disagree with the new face of the Democratic Party that we should abolish immigration customs and enforcement, the brave men and women who are trying to process the claims and in many ways protect children who may be smuggled by people who are not related to them, may be in danger when they try to come here," said Conway. "This is also somebody who like many Democrats today is for abortion on demand, calls herself a proud socialist. Don't forget Bernie Sanders, the most prominent socialist in the Democratic Party, he won 21 or 22 context and 13 million votes in presidential primary against the invincible queen herself."
However, she said the "big winner" in all the contests was Trump, as his presence increased the vote count for several GOP candidates.
"I think all of the people, geniuses who got 2016 wrong are getting 2018 wrong because they don't see the growing leftward pull of the Democratic Party," said Conway. "This is, I think, also people should recognize that Joe Crowley, the number 4 leading Democrat in the house who lost last night to a socialist, he -- he doesn't do what Donald Trump did to win the presidency, take the case directly to the people."
Conway also spoke out against rhetoric from Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, and the extreme protests and actions being taken against key Republicans.
"There is a difference between rhetoric and social media muscle and cable news and people inciting for crime and violence," said Conway. "This is calling for something much deeper and that's very, very concerning to many people. I also hope, a number of these executives in the media who are on top floors of buildings are paying very close attention to what's being said by some of their commentators and some of their writers."
