The world has a lot to learn from President Donald Trump.
But for Russia, there are a lot of differences.
The world’s first democratically elected leader and an unapologetic Putin admirer, the new president is an outsider who doesn’t have the same experience and experience is very different than the man who came to power two years ago in a landslide election.
Trump’s policies are very much a product of the Kremlin’s foreign policy.
His election has been hailed as a historic moment for a new, free world, but many experts question whether his victory has actually changed anything, at least in the short term.
Russia has been at the forefront of efforts to disrupt Western democracy, particularly during the 2016 election, and Trump has been the most visible leader to speak out against those efforts.
On Tuesday, as he prepared to travel to Brussels for the Group of 20 summit, Trump and Putin appeared on a panel together in Brussels.
The pair shared their views on issues from Syria to Ukraine to the NATO alliance and Trump even took a swipe at Putin for his response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2014.
Trump said Putin should have been “held accountable” for his actions, while Putin said Trump was “not responsible” for the war in Ukraine.
Trump has been accused of making a mockery of NATO, which he has described as “obsolete.”
But NATO is important in the region for security and prosperity.
Trump’s comments on NATO have also led some NATO members to question his desire to join the organization.
On the other hand, Putin has repeatedly praised Trump and his administration for its work on climate change.
The two leaders were scheduled to hold bilateral talks Tuesday, but their discussions were overshadowed by a dispute over whether the U.S. should be reimbursing Russian energy firms for the costs of building nuclear power plants in the U of T.
Trump also appeared to have a soft spot for former president Barack Obama, who has been widely criticized for his handling of Russia and Putin.
Trump praised Obama for the “great spirit” of the Obama administration.
But the Russian president was also critical of the former president for his stance on Crimea and Russia’s annexation of eastern Ukraine.
“If we have a president who has a soft side, that’s not good,” Trump said.
“You know, the U-turn in Crimea is an example of that.
And we’ll have to see what happens with Crimea.”
The White House has said Trump and Trump Jr. did not discuss the meeting, but they did discuss issues related to the election and its aftermath.
The president’s son’s emails were also shared with the Russians.
The president has been criticized for some of his actions during his time in office.
But he also has had a warm relationship with the Russian leader.
Trump, who was born in Slovenia, has said that he does not consider himself a Russian patriot, but has expressed admiration for Putin.
