Dr. Nikolas Gvosdev
Professor of National Security Affairs, U.S. Naval War College
As chief executive, Trump is in charge of the U.S. intelligence community, the diplomatic corps and the military. Yet his comments seem to suggest that, at times, the government is pursuing a policy towards Russia that he personally disagrees with but somehow has little power to change. -Dr. Nikolas Gvosdev
