    DC Elites Shocked at Trump Bromance with Putin but Give Israel’s Netanyahu a Pass

The inside-the-beltway crowd was absolutely outraged and appalled by Trump’s performance at Helsinki. There, Trump violated all the principles of American hawkishness.

  Trump-Putin Summit Delivers No Grand Bargain on Syria or Iran

The Cold War is a thing of the past. By the time President Putin said as much during preliminary remarks at his joint press conference with President Trump in Helsinki, it was clear this would not stand.
