All Trump has done Russia wise is give them a pass. The reason tensions were high was because Putin murdered abroad and at home including Sergei Magnitsky which got a law passed and a load of sanctions. He also ripped off or allowed his henchmen to rip off foreign investors for 100s of $millions. Then he invaded Crimea, interfered in Georgia's government and elections. Oh and is constantly engaged in active measures against the West and our democracies. He is for me the most dangerous man on Earth. He wants the West divided, the EU broken up, the US isolated, perhaps of its own doing. He isn't a republican, he's a Trumpster. His only interest is what he can get. So a nice fat tax break for the 1%. Contacts and influence and of course money for his family businesses. He doesn't give a damn about appointed judges ect other than if they can protect him from future criminal charges and they keep his base happy. I think he is just as hated, he has dragged the office of the president through the mud. He has made lying on a daily basis totally acceptable. He attacks anyone and everyone, even dead war heroes. He has added more than 2 $trillion to the deficit. Someone is going to have to pay that back, it won't be his generation. He said neo nazis and white nationalists where "good people". I never thought I'd hear a leader of the US says those words. What really winds me up about him though is he's a bully. I hate bullies. He's a wannabe mobster, he's a criminal who has spent a career ripping off people poorer than him and not suffered the consequences of his actions.
