Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) is angling to be the next U.S. Senator in her state, aggressively currying favor with Trump supporters despite frequently opposing his agenda while serving in the U.S. House.

Hartzler opposed President Trump’s foreign policy to ease tensions with Russia. She locked arms with the likes of Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), and Fred Upton (R-MI) to disapprove of “he President’s proposal to take an action relating to the application of certain sanctions with respect to the Russian Federation.”

She also voted to condemn President Trump’s removal of troops from Syria, preferring the neocon position of endless war in opposition to Trump’s “America First” agenda.  

“I call on the White House to modify its strategy in Syria so that bad state actors, including Russia, Iran, and non-state actors like Hezbollah or a resurgent ISIS, are not permitted to get and maintain a foothold in the region. Allowing them to do so would erase every gain we have made and would gravely jeopardize our security interests in the region,” Hartzler said, repeating Democrat and neocon talking points against Trump.

She also condemned President Trump’s historic diplomatic progress with North Korea, telling Trump to abandon diplomacy and his great friendship with leader Kim Jong-un in order to pursue the failed policies of prior globalist presidents.

“As a free nation that values life and religious freedom, America cannot stand by while the Kim regime continues to commit atrocious crimes against humanity,” Hartzler said.

Hartzler is also a major proponent of the deep state that spied on Trump throughout his presidency and hamstrung his administration through illegal actions. She voted for the USA Freedom Reauthorization Act, even though a bipartisan group of lawmakers warned about the legislation’s egregious violation of core constitutional rights.

And like all RINOs, Hartzler threw President Trump under the bus after the mostly-peaceful protest in and around the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“The assault on the United States Capitol building was appalling and something one would expect from a third world coup – not from people who consider themselves patriots. It was thuggery, plain and simple, and these violators must be punished. What began as a day dedicated to deliberating over our election process quickly turned into one of the darkest days in our nation’s history,” she said, adding that President Trump’s remarks throughout the day were “unpresidential.”

Hartzler’s record shows she is another pretender attempting to dupe Trump voters into thinking she is a legitimate “America First” champion. She is the wrong choice for the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Missouri during this year’s midterm elections.
