With Trump’s election as the next president looming, Vice News takes a look at the lessons from his presidency and how he could replicate it.
Trump’s first six months in office have been marked by chaos and chaos, with some presidents running roughshod over others in a bid to gain power.
In his first six days, President Trump, a man whose presidency was predicated on a “reset” of relations with Russia, has created the conditions for a future clash with Vladimir Putin.
Here’s what Vice News has learned from Trump’s tumultuous first six weeks.
A Trump presidency is now about to enter a new era, with a potential nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia looming and President Trump likely to attempt to restore American leadership in a time of national crisis.
Here are the key lessons from Trump and his presidency.
The Trump era will be about a reset Trump has made a point of avoiding direct confrontation with Russia and its leader, Vladimir Putin, and his aides, even as they have used their influence to undermine the president and his policies.
Trump has called for “reset,” saying he wants to bring about “a new beginning in relations with our adversaries.”
Trump’s advisers have repeatedly tried to delegitimize and discredit the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the outcome.
In early January, a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, accused a former FBI director, James Comey, of leaking classified information to the media, which was a charge Comey denied.
Comey has denied that charge, but it’s not clear whether Trump himself ever asked him to drop the investigation.
The White House has denied any collusion with Russia.
During his first day in office, Trump held an Oval Office meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in which he discussed the possibility of creating a working group to investigate the issue.
But a few days later, he announced that he was pulling out of that agreement.
Trump is also moving to reverse Obama-era efforts to restrict Russia’s influence in the United States and to make good on promises to close off Russia’s air space and sea borders.
He is making good on a campaign promise to impose tariffs on Russian goods, but not on U.K. goods.
The president is also considering pulling out the United Nations Security Council, which Trump has repeatedly denounced as the “world’s biggest club,” over Russian interference.
The administration has also begun moving to impose sanctions on Russia for its annexation of Crimea, as well as for its interference in Syria and Ukraine.
Trump was right to get rid of the sanctions.
But he should have taken the diplomatic route to do so.
The sanctions have been used as a bargaining chip by Russia, which has sought to undermine American democracy by portraying them as a violation of the sovereignty of Ukraine and the U,S.
Trump should have used them to force Moscow to end its meddling in U.N. elections, or to punish it for violating international law.
That would have prevented the U.,S.
government from imposing more punitive measures against Russia.
Trump should also have pressed for the lifting of sanctions against Ukraine.
Instead, he is continuing to use them as leverage against Moscow and other leaders who have been accused of using Russian influence in Ukraine to gain political power.
Trump could not have won a second term without Putin.
And he may never win a second re-election if Putin is still in power.
Putin and Trump have shown no signs of relaxing their adversarial relationship.
Putin has refused to allow U.
Ns. diplomats to travel to Moscow, and Trump has refused even to acknowledge the existence of the United Nation’s investigative commission into human rights abuses.
Trump, for his part, has not said how he would confront Putin if he were elected president.
Trump may have learned from past mistakes.
Trump made a mistake during the campaign by saying that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union.
The United Kingdom has a special relationship with the European community, and it would be a betrayal to the United states to abandon that.
Trump also made a grave mistake by promising to end the ban on Muslim immigration into the United State.
That ban was a major source of tensions between the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
While it may seem counterintuitive to deport tens of thousands of people, many of whom came from countries with the lowest human rights records, the United nations and its allies have been forced to consider the impact on the U.—especially the Muslim minority in these countries.
Trump and Putin may not be able to win a nuclear war.
But they could find a way to make a major difference by taking advantage of what some analysts consider the weakest link in a global alliance: the United Nats—the European Union, Russia, China, and other members of the global economic community.
The U. N. and the EU have not been able to work effectively in recent years, with U. Nations sanctions hurting the global economy, with Russia losing a key ally and a
