It feels weird to say I agree with Gorbachev, but that is the truth. If past leadership can see what’s happening and give this feedback, the current leadership needs to wake up and listen. The biggest issue that stands out for me is the Trump-Putin relationship through the 2016 elections. To redirect ourselves back into sanity, there should be no foreign government actively engaged in America around election time. The hacking of Democratic headquarters computers by Russians is a parallel to Watergate. At least Nixon was impeached, even though he got pardoned later. Trump is slithering through this hacking issue with no accountability at all.
Both countries have greatly increased their national debts by fact of involvement in Mideastern wars and involvement of their espionage/ intel agencies in nations through out the world.
