Trump is not in charge.
President Eisenhower warned Americans in 1961 that the power of the military/industrial complex made it a threat to American democracy.
Try to imagine how much more this power is entrenched after the decades of the Cold War. The power of the military/security complex is the premier power in Washington.
The US military/security complex with an annual budget greater than the GDP of most countries, the neoconservatives with their ideology of US world hegemony and allied with both Democratic and Republican parties establishments and Israel —how is it possible for President Trump to do as he said he would do and normalize relations with Russia and withdraw from the US interventions in the Middle East?
If the Russian government fails to understand that President Trump is not the one who is in charge, Russia will be destroyed along with America and the rest of the world.
Harvard types end up working for Wall Street to fleece the world, working for Deep State to perpetuate US globo-hegemony, and working in elite institutions to spread PC and subvert freedom of speech.
