Exactly what Putin wanted and expected. This is why Russia backed Trump, elevate politicians to achieve what Russia wants - to subvert and weaken democracy, surrender the world to authoritarians, like the Kremlin

Yesterday’s Trump phone call to Putin cemented a victory for the Kremlin’s 5 year effort to subvert US democracy. The plan worked, Russia won. Only 1 big objective remains - ending sanctions 

Putin likely can’t believe what he’s achieved with Trump. US President calling him, seeking him out at international meetings, repeating Kremlin disinformation from the White House, admonishing NATO & EU, unconditional US withdrawal in different regions

.@IgnatiusPost noted a couple years back. What does America get from Trump’s currying favor with Putin and Russia? Makes no sense. Russia attacked 🇺🇸, why would we want to reset relations with Russia? Part 1 #MuellerReport to me says we should have no relations with Russia at all
