Why Putin Favors Trump

This guy thinks it is because they are both cynical SOBs and as a result Putin thinks he can strike a deal with Trump on how to divide up the world. If that is what Putin thinks he is probably right.

    I always thought is was because Putin figured he could appeal to the Donald's ego, manipulate him, and get him to do stuff in Russia's interest and against America's or its allies.



    In other words, he's a useful idiot.

    Well, as an isolationist, Putin perhaps hopes that Trump will fail to back up the new NATO countries, as he has indicated. The East Euro countries will be pressured to bend to his demands for better trade deals, etc.
    Any Isolationist candidate would be of benefit to Putin, just as isolationists were to Tojo and ****.
