3. There's no doubt that other countries like Russia...

... want to foster internal strife in this country, and they want USA's long-time alliances severed. They want the USA to be isolated on the international stage, and Trump keeps trying to do it.

I think it's VERY short-sighted by people like Putin. This country could still wipe them off the face of the planet, and being isolated would probably make that outcome more likely, especially since the strategy seems to involve putting right-wing authoritarians in power. That's like purposely putting Hitler in power somewhere just to make that country suffer. (Not that they USA hasn't been involved in similarly short-sighted manipulations in the past.)
