Generally, I think we could agree that what’s good for Russia is not good for the US or its allies. So why does Russia think Trump will be good for them? You have to ask yourself this one question and then look for answers. And no matter what answer you find I think it will turn out to not be good for the USA.
After all, Trump’s acquiescent attitude towards anything having to do with Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, is so baffling, so dismissive of American institutions and arguably of the country’s interests, that it has become the most corrosive point of contention between Trump and members of his own party.
