Trump has held true to his campaign promises far more than Obama ever did.

The following may be an unforgettable lesson Trump learns during his presidency:  "Never promise anything if you can't fulfil it no matter how hard you try".

Taking an analogy, can a parent fulfil his promise of getting the moon for his child?
"Now FBI has to sieve through all tweets and rally speeches by Trump for any 'China, if you're listening' remark." -- Reedak

I do not dismiss your analysis out-of-hand. The West has been very unwise in its treatment of the Russian problem. I have been concerned for a long time that rightist influences have caused a needless provocation of Russian nationalist anger. But you will not be pleased by my analysis. Had I been "ruler" of the West, I would have given such overwhelming support to Gorbachev (in economic and military terms) that the USSR might still exist as a social democratic state included in NATO. (Likely the Baltic States would have seceded; but not Belarus and Ukraine) My objective would be to add the USSR to the power of the West - and thus have greater bargaining-power to induce China to move toward Western liberal democracy (which can include a strong socialist component). I am a Western globalist - seeking mixed capitalist and socialist economies within a democratic framework. For an unreformed communist, this is the stuff of nightmares!
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

Trump' antics are two parts:

Point 1, that's why he must side with Putin, who denied meddling in the 2016 Election!  So simple, any fool can see why!

Yeah, and he would bring the world trading system down just to keep his promises!  How scary!

I'm agreeing with you on that point. That's why I posted that tidbit.
