Russia is ready and looks forward to restoring bilateral relations with the United States, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, commenting on the news of Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential election. The US will have to negotiate with Russia on finding solutions to international issues as no state is now able to act alone
While many are critical of Trump's efforts to renew ties with Russia, I believe it is a positive step toward global unity. Trump's actions show the willingness of the United States to work together with other nations despite any past conflicts that may have existed, and move forward toward a brighter future.
Putin, the current leader shows signs of being a dictator and a despot. Of course Trump is only concerned about his own best interests, and this is the kind of thing we can expect from a man like that. It would be better if Trump was not so eager to entangle the us with Russia.
Renewing ties with Russia may not be a negative. But let's look at what Russia has done in terms of hacking and possibly interfering in our recent election. Look at the invasion of Syria, moving missiles to the edge of NATO territory in Europe, buzzing our ships and planes. Trump has business interests tied to Russia. I'm suspicious.
