Coats reiterated that Russia was attacking democratic elections in France, Germany, Norway, Spain and Ukraine. One can imagine why, despite Trump’s urging, that the G-7 nations will not consider re-admitting Russia who was expelled after the invasion and annexation of Crimea, part of Ukraine. This, apparently, does not bother Trump, who never seems to have a discouraging word for Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin, no matter what he does. So why is Trump so weak when facing Putin? Does he owe Russian banks, controlled by Putin, money?
