2. Kleptocracies.

Putin may be the biggest, richest kleptocrat alive; that's probably why Dump and the GOP love him.

When the USSR collapsed a decent person in Putin's position might have privatized the Soviet government assets and passed the proceeds on to the new Russian government and the Russian people. Putin privatized the assets, kept a lot of the proceeds for himself, and handed a lot off to his pals--the new oligarchs. Isn't that what Dump and Republicans would love to do in the U.S.?
