Never in recent history has a change of leadership attracted as much attention and speculation as Donald Trump's rise to the U.S. presidency.The first Trump is the friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin.Depending on who is opining, Trump is either a naive admirer of strongmen like Putin or a longtime tool of Russian intelligence. Russian oligarchs may have saved Trump from personal bankruptcy, and one reportedly traveled to a number of Trump's campaign stops, perhaps acting as a go-between with the Kremlin.Trump seems intent on transforming the presidency into another source of personal wealth.Another theory is that all three Trumps – friend of Putin, wealth maximizer, and demagogue – are really one: Trump the businessman has long been supported by the Russians, who have used him for years as a front for laundered money.None of this has made Trump very popular.In that case, Republican leaders are more likely to turn on Trump.
