Does anyone doubt that Putin is Trump's role model, and this news from Russia deeply inspires him?

Putin challenger Alexey Navalny barred from running for president

MOSCOW -- Russian election officials on Monday formally barred Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny from running for president, prompting calls from him for a boycott of next year's vote. The Central Election Commission decided unanimously that the anti-corruption crusader isn't eligible to run.

Navalny is implicitly barred from running for office because of a conviction in a fraud case which has been viewed as political retribution. He could have run if he was given a special dispensation or if his conviction was cancelled.

Incumbent Vladimir Putin is set to easily win a fourth term in office in the March 18 election, with his approval ratings topping 80 percent.

4. That would require an attention span, a willingness to learn, and a work ethic of some sort.

No, Trump just wishes people would stop questioning him all the time.
