Max Boot writes in the NY Times, “The fact that Mr. Trump seems to give greater credence to the Kremlin than to United States intelligence agencies is precisely what has set off so much speculation about his real motives in cozying up to Mr. Putin.”

I think that Max has succinctly summarized a fundamental concern that Trump continues to raise with his Putin praise.
