What’s Worse: If Trump and Putin Get Along, Or If They Don’t?

American and Russian presidential summits are always risky affairs. This one feels different.

It seems unlikely, given the American uproar about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, and signs in the Russian media that Vladimir Putin is souring on Donald Trump, that the two presidents will make any major agreements when they meet Friday on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Hamburg.

What is most likely to emerge is a sense of how much, if any, of their autumn bromance remains. But that raises key questions: What determines whether personal relations between presidents are good or bad? How important are the effects of good or bad chemistry? The answer, past summits suggest, is that coziness with Russian leaders is not necessarily nefarious and that it can help to keep the peace with Moscow, but that good personal chemistry is hard to come by and that bad personal relations can be positively dangerous. In the case of Trump and Putin, both good and bad chemistry could be dangerous.

The case of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Josef Stalin demonstrates the dangers of trying to cultivate good relations with a paranoid Russian leader. To Roosevelt, Stalin resembled a no-nonsense American politician with whom he thought he could business. He tried to win over the Soviet leader at the 1943 Tehran conference by teasing British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and the more Churchill scowled, FDR later told his Labor Secretary Frances Perkins, “the more Stalin smiled.” After “Stalin broke into a deep, hearty guffaw,” Roosevelt continued, “I kept it up until Stalin was laughing with me and it was then that I called him ‘Uncle Joe.’” After that, “our relations were personal.” The “ice was broken and we talked like men and brothers.”

In fact, Stalin saw through Roosevelt’s charm and took it to be trickery, which only made him more, not less, suspicious of FDR. Churchill, Stalin later told the Yugoslav politician Milovan Djilas, “is the kind who if you don’t watch him, will slip a kopeck out of your pocket! And Roosevelt? Roosevelt is not like that. He dips in his hand only for bigger coins.Despite this mistrust, the two leaders were able to hold the Grand Alliance together until the end of the war. But their agreement on the outlines of the postwar order contained the seeds of the Cold War.

The case of John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev suggests what can happen when personal chemistry is bad. Kennedy and Khrushchev were as different personally as their countries were opposed politically at the height of the Cold War. Kennedy—young, rich and highly educated—constituted a personal challenge to the ill-educated, uncultured, former peasant who now led the USSR. But in Khrushchev, Kennedy was facing a rough, tough older man who in some ways resembled the father who had dominated his childhood. Ignoring the advice of his chief advisers on the USSR, Kennedy tried at the June 1961 Vienna summit to engage Khrushchev in a candid but calm exchange about their ideological differences. But when Khrushchev, who was as explosive as he was impulsive, erupted in a defensive harangue he intimidated his young counterpart. “Roughest thing in my life,” JFK told New York Times columnist James Reston afterward. Khrushchev’s impression of Kennedy: “This man is very inexperienced, even immature.” The encounter encouraged Khrushchev to send Soviet missiles to Cuba, bringing the world closer than it has ever been to nuclear war.   READ MORE

ARE YOU COMPLETELY PREPARED?  

The Bible tells us that every human has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God which is  is a heart-penetrating truth. He has provided a way to cleanse us of our sins since we can never be “good enough” to cleanse ourselves. That avenue to God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness (the cleansing of our sins) is through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who is equally God.

 Not one of us are guaranteed a “tomorrow”. Has your time run out? Will you continue to ignore the promptings of God the Holy Spirit or have you awakened to the essential need for God, risking eternal damnation?

​​God the Holy Father, God the Holy Son and God the Holy Spirit are One God, the true, living, uncreated God Who is ever-present, all knowing, all powerful and all loving. He desires that every single person be forgiven, saved and to live eternally with Him. He is our only real protection and His love for you is unchanging. Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, the true Messiah, today.

 You can’t take your salvation for a test drive. You’re all-in or not.

 Admit to Him that you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, that you are truly sorry for your sins.  Acknowledge that He died for your sins, rose from the dead and lives forevermore. Invite Him into your life and to help you to turn from sin. Rejoice! You just became a Christian! Now trust in Him and get to know Him through the Bible which tells us everything we need to know and through prayer/talking to Him. He eagerly desires relationship with you.
