Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado called out former President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats on “Fox & Friends” Thursday for flip-flopping on Russia and deeming them a threat to the U.S.

Gardner cited the 2012 presidential election when Republican nominee Mitt Romney called Russia one of America’s biggest threats but was rebuked by Obama on the debate stage. (RELATED: GOP Sen. Cory Gardner Says Trump Supports States That Want To Legalize Weed)

“That’s exactly the style you have seen from this president whether it’s Kim Jong un or whether it’s Vladimir Putin. But again, I don’t think — you know, remember what happened over the last eight years,” Gardner said. “You had a President Obama who said to Mitt Romney ‘The ’80s are calling. They want their foreign policy back.'”


Gardner said it was “remarkable” for Democrats to completely change their position on Russia, simply because a Republican in now in the White House.

“Now we see Russia sort of taking this center stage role that the Democrats denied for the last 8 years. It’s pretty remarkable,” he concluded.
