…U.S. / Russian relations are already normalizing:
“President-elect Trump noted to President Putin that he is very much looking forward to having a strong and enduring relationship with Russia and the people of Russia.”
As with most aspects of a Trump White House, there is very little concrete understanding about what his foreign policy may look like. Many in Moscow fear that, with his unpredictable temperament, Trump could prove a false friend. But his statement in his victory speech that “we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us” went down well in the Kremlin.
Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the two leaders shared a “phenomenally similar” outlook on foreign policy.
I’m sure Putin appreciates the fact that the U.S. now has a President and a State Department that’s not going to fund and arm ISIS. I truly wish that the millions of people who are right now sobbing and running to their “safe space” knew just how close the outgoing administration had us to World War 3 with Russia.
