Why Did Trump Decide to Defend Putin?


As Barack Obama is leaving the White House, the relations between Moscow and Washington are getting tenser. In this situation, President-Elect Trump is acting as Putin’s advocate.

 

 

 

 
For those of you who don’t know, Barack Obama expanded the sanctions against Russia in late 2016 as a respond to Russia’s cyber-attacks in advance of the U.S. presidential election won by Donald Trump. Obama’s decision implies further confrontations between the Kremlin and the U.S. Democrats, including Obama’s administration and American secret agencies.
 
The situation took an unexpected turn when President-Elect Trump interfered and decided to defend Moscow and Putin. The thing is, Putin’s advocates claim that the sanctions imposed on Russia are way too tough. Trumps’ advisors say those sanctions are exaggerated and disproportional. The next day Obama deported 35 Russian diplomats, Donald Trump said that Putin made a wide decision by not responding to this act in a similar way.
 
At the same time, President-Elect Trump is questioning Putin’s involvement in the mentioned hacker attacks in the USA. He says this could have been China or some other states. There are no proofs that it was Russia.
 
President-Elect Trump and his team blame the CIA for not providing any proofs that Putin was involved in the attacks. For some reason, they don’t mention that as President-Elect, Mr. Trump can make the CIA provide those proofs by somehow hasn’t done is so far.  
 
On the one hand, Trump’s advocates say he has chosen the right strategy to persuade the public that Putin is not guilty. On the other hand, the best defense is a good offense. This is exactly what Mr. Trump and his team have been doing so far.
 
What is in for Donald Trump?
 

 

All in all, it’s safe to say that Donald Trump’s defense strategy has proven efficient a number of times. The strange part of all this is that it’s President-Elect and his team who have been on the defense side.

Chances are, President-Elect Trump and his team are seriously concerned about the U.S. government being way to negative about Vladimir Putin.  At the same time, experts are trying to find out the reasons why President-Elect Trump decided to defend Putin.
 

 

One of the possible reasons considered by the experts has to do with money – a sophisticated combination of debt, business ties, with a bit of blackmailing. However, Putin and Trump appear to be on the same side of the barricades. Simply put, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, American Democrats and the CIA are enemies for both Putin and Trump. Maybe that’s why Trump is trying to defend Putin and make friends with him later when he finally becomes the 45th President of the United States of America.
