He"s working for what he can get out of Putin for his own advantage. Putin is doing the same with Trump, but he’s a lot smarter. Putin manipulates Trump every day.
According to the intelligence, Trump got caught doing some really nasty stuff in Russia… he’s basically being blackmailed into doing Putin’s bidding in that case.
Conceivably trump could end up on death row for this, I don’t think this will end up in his advantage at all. He’ll likely get out of this with his life, but he’s never going to be welcome in the US again, they are already attacking him on Fox News, that’s only going to get worse. He has no real allies except Putin and as devious and ruthless as Putin is he’s not American and there is going to be one hell of a backlash over what Trump has done already. And he’s not done yet.
I also don’t think Putin is very smart, he just has zero conscience. According to sources like Alexander Litvinenko Putin also has a sword hanging over his head ready to drop.
Alexander Litvinenko publicly accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being a pedophile just four months before he was poisoned in 2006, an inquiry into the ex-KGB spy’s death has found.
When the future Russian president was a student, he was filmed abusing children in an apartment where another top politician had a threesome with prostitutes, Litvinenko claimed in an article on the Chechenpress website in July 2006, four months before he was murdered, The Daily Mail reported.
Litvinenko made the accusation after the president was pictured a month earlier kissing the stomach of a 5-year-old boy during a walkabout in a public square near the Kremlin.
So who has the video of Putin diddling little boys, we aren’t seeing the real puppet masters here.
