Russia, having always been our mortal enemy, if any shady deal or conspiracy has occurred, directly or indirectly between Trump and Putin, we could consider it to be treachery in highest places.

If it had been Hillary Clinton cozying up to the Russians, Trump would have accused her of being a communist with more mean-spirited chants of “lock her up” and probably even worse.

But, ironically, for someone whose name, in French, sounds a lot like “to trick” or “to deceive,” they call it rapprochement.

It is too bad so many gullible people fell for him and his slogan because now this country may have to suffer the consequences for a long time.

We’re definitely taking steps backwards.
