Unless you are a clueless Inspector Clouseau, it is pretty obvious that Clinton was feared as too strong an opponent for Putin. He wanted someone more malleable, someone who would be a weak challenger to his designs to diminish Western democratic institutions like free elections, a free press and an independent judicial system. He also wants to reduce the influence of alliances like NATO, the World Trade Organization, and regional trade agreements like NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership that have helped create an American hegemony. So, what’s been our president’s position on the importance of these institutions and alliances? Are his actions really making America great again?
