Reason why Putin wanted Trump to win

It wasn’t because Trump is Pro Russian or has policies that would be friendlier to Russia. It’s because Putin knew that he was a divider and would cause Americans to hate and distrust one another.

5. I use th think that

But I now think it is what I said in the OP. I think I read a quote that said something like “the best way to destroy a country is within”

4. Kneecapping America benefits Russia on the world stage.

And Putin found the perfect tool to do that: Trump.

7. I agree. The Russian leadership knew how badly Trump would hurt us internally.

And that makes us weaker as a nation. That's the plan and that's why they wanted Trump. They will continue to try to weaken us in this manner.

9. I think it's money.

Removing sanctions on Russia would add billion$ to Putin's bottom line.

There is an end to his means. With these guys, it's usually about money.

10. He knew that Trump

would further divide us, dismantle our infrastructure and basic socials programs, generally create havoc, and weaken our nation. They have accomplished that in less than a year.

11. There is more than one reason.

Pro-Russia puppet
Sanctions
Internal division
Lessening US influence worldwide
Continued corruption- Us led the world in anti-corruption efforts
US promotion of democracy a sore point with Putin

These are just a few of the reasons.

Trump is Putin's puppet or haven't you noticed ?

- Bill Browder just had his US visa pulled.
-Trump admin. has not enforced the new Russian sanctions voted by congress
- Jeff Sessions just testified that the DOJ hasn't done anything to combat Russian interference in our elections
-The state department has been gutted
-Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord
-Trump parrots Russian propaganda on twitter

Need I go on ?
