Donald Trump must RISK NUCLEAR WAR to 'prove' he is not Putin's puppet - CNN

From CNN And Washington Post Demand That Trump Further Escalate Tensions With Russia (1/4/2019) by Caitlin Johnstone:

Fareed Zakaria says that
Donald Trump must now
'prove' that he is not
Putin's puppet by risking
nuclear war to overthrow

CNN has aired a segment (embedded below within this article) in which pundit Fareed Zakaria tells the network's audience that the US president has "been unwilling to confront Putin in any way on any issue” and asks "will Venezuela be the moment when Trump finally ends his appeasement?"

The segment is a near-verbatim reading of Zakaria's Washington Post column from a couple of days prior, so that’s two massive prongs through which this false and pernicious narrative is being driven into mainstream consciousness claiming that the Trump administration has been far too dovish toward Moscow, rather than dangerously hawkish as is actually the case.
