The American society seems to be split in half – those who support Donald Trump and who hate him. More and more exports who are hostile to the U.S. president say that the American democracy is in jeopardy for the first time in several decades.
They say that the first three months after Donald Trump won the presidential election are showing us that the American political system is losing its ability to balance and center itself, and this is happening fast. This is mostly about the ability to change the power in a legitimate and peaceful way.
For the sake of comparison, something similar happened in 1981 when Ronald Reagan was elected. Back then, people also saw him a redneck, and an illiterate person incapable of running a superpower. However, his first 100 days showed that he had been doing a great job as the President of the United States.
These days, many experts compare Donald trump to Ronald Reagan. But some experts still believe that this time it’s a completely different story. They say that this time the While House is occupied by a right-hand populist. The thing is that he has been fighting many of those political things that used to be seen as normal and correct. This way, he may well be showing the world that he is not ready to be the President for the entire American people.
Another thing that’s different this time is said to be the call to resist Donald Trump and his administration. This called is backed by most American media corporations as well as the majority of the American political establishment.
The hate is growing bigger as more and more politicians declare war on Trump and his administration. This is something unprecedented. Well, there used to be even more terrible things in the U.S. history. In the 1850th, the USA was torn into pieces by a civil war that resulted in 600K killed. And even though there won’t be a new civil war in the USA, a cold civil war is a very likely scenario, the experts say.
More than 25 years ago, when American won the cold war with the USSR which ended with the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the Americans could even think that one day they would be split in half once again.
The bottom line is that these days it’s very difficult to find a well-thought-out standpoint when it comes to Trump and his policies. While some people try to defend Trump and his desire to make friends with Russia and Putin to fight international terrorist together, others don’t want to hear their reasoning and say that Putin owns Trump, that Trump is Putin’s puppet.
Anyways, it’s very difficult to predict what’s coming next. However, one thing is sure, the United states of America and the entire world are definitely going to change…

New Secretary of the Treasury Says No to Canceling Sanctions against Russia
Even despite the fact that Donald trump unexpectedly become the 45th President of the United States, and he seems to be more loyal to Russia than any U.S. leader over the last couple of decades, Russia has still been failing to find a common language with the USA.
Donald Trump started his presidency with unpopular decisions. Some of his policies are not welcomed by politicians from both parties, not to mention mass media, secret services and millions of U.S. citizens. Maybe Putin was hoping that Trump would start helping Russia implementing its imperial ambitions despite the public discontent in the USA. But those hopes now seem to be broken. The sanctions will stay effective until Russia gives the Crimea back to Ukraine. That’s the standpoint put forward by Trump’s administration.
The dialog between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump is following an unexpected scenario. It’s unexpected for Moscow. The Kremlin seems to have lost their key “trump” card in the talks with Washington.
According to some military experts, even the most unbiased Russian media ignored a sensational statement published by Reuters.

The agreement was signed in 2010 in Prague and will expire in 2020.
Trump Wants Big Deal with Russia. What May Come out of It?

For now, the details of the plan are vague. The current ambiguity existing among the representatives of Trump’s administration hints at this fact. Even when the USA's Permanent Representative to the United Nations demanded for the condemnation of Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, Donald Trump seemed to still have some hope for making friends with Putin. At the same time, he wouldn’t dare say something like ‘the USA is as blood-thirsty as Russia’.

Putin's Chances to Improve Relations with Trump Are Close to Zero, Experts Say
Some experts say that Putin has almost zero chances to reach mutual understanding with Trump.
