It's hard to tell if Trump is a Russian asset or mainly just a useful idiot.

Trump invited the Russian foreign minister (and Putin crony) Lavrov

Lest anybody forget, heres a list some of the things Trump and his government did around Putin, Russia and the Ukraine:

The list is based on Ghoulius-Caesar's post on reddit.

Now the failed businessman clown grifter has thrown his hat in the ring for a third presidental run. Great timing! I'm sure Putin is pleased. He's apparently the top of the running for the GOP. The party with no platform other than to pay homage to daddy Trump, whilst Trump pays homage to daddy Putin. You'd think they'd be embarrassed, but there seems no bottom to the GOPs shamelessness, hypocrisy and cruelty.

I guess it's obvious but it's worth saying clearly - the GOP and right wing media is of course complicit.

It seems Putin is following Foundations of Geopolitics. These following points are taken from the wiki page:

Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke "Afro-American racists". Russia should "introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics".
