Albeit counter-intuitive, Donald Trump might be the most effective American president to ever deal with Vladimir Putin. And before you close this article;  I’m not about to characterize Donald Trump as some sort of political 4D chess mastermind. Yet ironically,  the Kremlin’s highest profile apologist has positioned himself to do the most damage to Putin’s authoritarian regime. Even if unwilling. …

Why would Trump Denounce Putin When he Needs him Again?

Trump won his election by a decisive electoral college victory. The president would want you to read that first sentence and stop right there.
