It’s no surprise to see outrage and condemnation from the Left whenever Trump does something egregious. So in the aftermath of Trump’s Helsinki Summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, there’s not much news there. What is newsworthy though is the fact that conservatives – including supporters of Trump – have been increasingly critical of the President in the wake of the summit. Collected here are quotes exclusively from Republicans / Conservatives.

“The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.”
John McCain, Republican Senator

“The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia.”
Paul Ryan, Republican Speaker of the House

“No negotiation is worth throwing your own people and country under the bus.”
Abby Huntsman, Fox News Channel Anchor

“It’s disgusting. It’s just wrong. A U.S. president talking to our biggest enemy and not even offering mild criticism. That sets us back a lot.”
Neil Cavuto, Fox Business Anchor

“It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected immediately.”
Newt Gingrich, Former Republican Speaker of the House

“[Trump] made us look as a nation more like a push over. I did not think this was a good moment for our country.”
Bob Corker, Republican Senator

“This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russia as a sign of weakness.”
Lindsey Graham, Republican Senator

“This was atrocious and no American president should ever behave this way.”
Karol Markowicz, Conservative Columnist for NY Post

“I’ve said a number of times and I say it again, the Russians are not our friends.”
Mitch McConnell, Republican Senate Majority Leader

For those who are worried about the President’s coziness to Putin and wondering what they can do: Contact your legislators and ask them to hold Trump accountable for his actions and to our country – and hold Russia accountable where needed as well.
