What a surprising oversight...or maybe not...

Quote

On Saturday, the Russian Foreign Ministry published an updated list of 963 Americans barred from entering Russia...featuring a wide-ranging collection of Biden administration members, Republicans, tech executives, journalists, lawmakers who have died, regular U.S. citizens and even actor Morgan Freeman.

...Those barred include rabbis, an LBGTQ activist, an attorney in Iowa, executives at defense contractors and a history professor at Yale University.

...One prominent name missing from the list: former president Donald Trump.

...The Russian Foreign Ministry’s list of 963 Americans includes many members of Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

...Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is not on the list. Also not listed is Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who delayed a Senate vote on aid for Ukraine last week when he was the only senator to object.

They banned John McCain, Harry Reid, and Orrin Hatch (all posthumously) but not Trump.

Obviously they have no reason to ban Trump.

Banning Biden? Yeah, how are they going to veto a UN Security Council resolution when all of their representatives been banned flying into the US...
