Donald Trump has always ensnared the Russian President. That could be a problem for him now. Suddenly Trump strikes a new note – and threatens the Russian President. Donald Trump called Russian President Vladimir Putin “brilliant”, “smart”, “savvy”, even just before he invaded Ukraine. Trump defended these words to the end, albeit with a slightly different intonation: „The problem is not that Putin is smart – of course he is smart – the problem is that our politicians are stupid,“ Trump said shortly after the war began. But this position is now beginning to crack: Trump seems to be realizing that sticking with Putin could significantly damage his own plans.
