Russia expert Prof. Dan Chirot was recently interviewed by KOMO Radio about Trump’s connection to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, resigned after it was revealed he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

Chirot emphasizes that the Russian president sees the United States and the European Union as enemies, a fact that is puzzling considering Trump’s friendly tone towards Putin.
