“Trump’s Russian Schizophrenia”


POLITICO

“The United States should send arms to Ukraine to help in its “self-defense” against Russian aggression.

But of course, there’s just one big problem with this: It almost certainly does not fully reflect what the president of the United States actually thinks.” MORE
