1. The fact that Trump is closer to Russian interests, than he is to traditional U.S. foreign policy

is due to the nature of international business. This desire to reach out to foreign countries has been going on since the nineties. I mean, it was going on before then, but in the nineties local governments were doing some extraordinary reach out programs to connect with business partnerships in other countries. The interests of LOCAL governments were being proxied through private business people in the area. On a small scale it proved to be disastrous as local city elected officers were breaking the law in order to push these partnerships. We're still reeling from the power overreach.

Take that to Trump's level, where he gets access to millions of money from foreign interests. He is the natural result of global business networking. Which is a huge irony, since the small Joe right-wing voters are distrustful of globalism.

Trump is the supreme capitalist example of a globalist.
