Rise of the Bullies: Trump, Erdogan and Putin

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

“Trump has expressed admiration for Putin, ignorance of Russian aggression in Ukraine and misgivings about the value and continued relevance of the NATO alliance. Clinton is far from perfect and there are legitimate fears that if elected, she will fail to restrain her inner hawk. But she would continue the tradition of strong U.S. engagement in the world and stand up to bullies like Erdogan and Putin. She will only get that chance if she defeats another bully named Trump.”
