Americans are paid up to 1500 USD for participating in protests against Trump

Summary

Americans are paid up to 1500 USD for participating in protests against Donald Trump.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory presented without evidence.

Pro-Kremlin media have long used the narrative about anti-government protests being funded by the US. Examples include colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, and Ukraine's Euromaidan in 2014. Western non-governmental organisations are often targeted by pro-Kremlin disinformation as agents of this subversive and state-driven influence.

The White House has announced that its sanctions against Russia have failed

The White House has announced that its sanctions policy against Russia is a failure.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that Western sanctions against Russia are unproductive and unjust.

White House spokesperson Josh Earnest is quoted out of context, creating the impression that the US is admitting defeat in its sanctions policy. During a briefing on 6 October 2016, Josh Earnest explained that while the sanctions have not forced Russia to respect Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty, they are having an impact.

Democrats do not want to accept the result of the US elections

Democrats do not want to accept the result of the elections. A plot for impeachment of president Trump has started already.

Disproof

There are several initiatives calling for Donald Trump's impeachment, however none of them is related to the Democratic party and none of them has so far had any serious political impact. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic party nominee, has already accepted the defeat and offered Trump cooperation, and the current president, Barack Obama (D) announced his dedication to help with a smooth transition of presidential powers to Donald Trump.
