“You can be sure that once clueless Joe Biden is out of the Oval Office, Donald Tusk will not be very welcome in the White House. The man is a walking disaster for Poland and US/Polish relations,” wrote Nile Gardiner, a foreign policy analyst and former advisor to Margaret Thatcher, regarding the now-infamous tweet by the head of the Polish government.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted against a bill that tied funding for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan with immigration reforms. The immigration reforms were rejected, even though Republicans in the Senate had initially, in December, rejected a “clean” bill with funding for Ukraine and Israel, demanding tighter policies at the southern border. However, once a negotiated project by both parties was announced – allowing the president to “close the border” and significantly tightening the asylum process – Republicans turned against it. This shift is suggested to be primarily due to intense pressure from former President Donald Trump.
The decision of the American Republicans was addressed by the head of the Polish government, Donald Tusk, who – it’s worth reminding – is currently on vacation, as he meticulously reports on his social media.
Dear Republican Senators of America. Ronald Reagan, who helped millions of us to win back our freedom and independence, must be turning in his grave today. Shame on you.— Donald Tusk (@donaldtusk) February 8, 2024

But this is not the end.
What is shameful Mr. Tusk is jailing your political opponents, shutting down television stations, and groveling to your masters in Brussels, while lecturing people about "democracy". https://t.co/u9wmfWsqh2— Nile Gardiner (@NileGardiner) February 8, 2024
Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the USA, who served from 1981-89 and was known for his uncompromising policy towards Moscow, was one of the most important world leaders who contributed to the end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
