40. we all saw it coming

the fact of the matter that voters in rust bet states did not care about it, they voted for Trump in spite of all the negativity. And they cared about their own communities much more than the country. For all I know, Russia could be partially financing Trump's campain and that would still not make any difference.

Russia had a huge stake in this election. There is a huge propability that under Trump, economic sanctions against Russia will be lifted and NATO fundamentally weakened. Trump is positioning Russia as a critical ally in the fight against terrorism - we are witnessing a colossal paradigm shift in the US foreign policy. Trump doesn't care about Syria, he probably feels we'd be better off carpet bombing the entire region or let Russia do it so we feel 'clean'.
