PODCAST | Carol J. Williams | Trump, Putin, and Russia: What’s That All About? (11.1.2016)

March 15, 2017

Donald Trump has broken with the Republican Party line in his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, promoting good relations with Russia, and criticizing NATO. What’s more, Putin has spoken warmly of Trump, and Russia is accused of hacking emails that are then leaked to help Trump’s presidential campaign. A week before the election, former LA Times Moscow Bureau Chief Carol J. Williams addressed the intrigue involving Trump, Putin, and Russia at a discussion moderated by Ellison Center Director Scott Radnitz. Williams is former senior international writer for the Los Angeles Times and has won five Overseas Press Club awards, two Sigma Delta Chi citations, and was a 1993 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in international reporting.
