The second is Donald Trump's encomium in last week's NBC forum for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has been attacking the U.S. and its allies in Ukraine, Syria and cyberspace.This one is worth considering: The problem with Trump isn't (as some critics have argued) that he's a reckless and potentially genocidal aggressor.Trump seems to see commitments made to smaller states as expendable in the process of making deals with the big guys. This idea of reaching agreements with Putin's Russia isn't crazy, any more than was Chamberlain's desire to escape war in 1938 . And Trump actually deserves credit for raising this issue early in the Republican primary debates. But any such negotiation must be done carefully and unsentimentally, without the mutual self-congratulation that has characterized Trump's comments about Putin. Secretary of State John Kerry is pursuing his own version of a deal with Putin, in the Syria agreement announced Friday night. This is a slippery slope, not just for Trump, but for the United States.
