This is exactly right. There is a tendency to see Trump as a Teflon president after the fashion of Ronald Reagan but he comes into office with the lowest approval rating of any president in recent memory. The CIA and NSA tops are filled with Russophobes. Despite the tendency to see RT.com and Breitbart as hegemonic, there are many men in their 60s and 70s who are quite hostile to the idea of the USA and Russia bonding after the fashion of FDR and Stalin.
