    When the USSR collapsed it put a great many highly trained and ruthless people out if work. But they knew how to make a buck and launder it. And they made the most of their new situation.
    Did a real estate tycoon know people with money ? You better believe it.

    They had already made their money, so they moved out of Russia and were looking to invest. Government was starting to reassert itself so it was time to move on.

    When Putin gained power in Russia the Russian mafia had to leave so they took their millions and billions and came here to enjoy life and let their money make money for them.

    I am not sure what dogtowner meant. I suspect he agrees with the author that Trump and Putin took advantage of the economic syste that he used some Millionaires to bring the countries together. IN the past such millioniares would be killed if they oppose the government but if the Poltitcian is a businessman they would be used by people like Trump. OF course these are also criminals but theirc rimes such as money landering are not important. THey can not be punish in the USA. the lesson is that you must use whartrever power exisiin a country. THese do have economic power so can get political power. TRump sees this point but tries to hide it as it is not popular in the USA..
