For John, BLUF: Maybe it isn't presentism, but this view that Messrs Trump and Putin are the most evil ever is a little off the mark. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
The Trumpworld insider is under scrutiny for his alleged backchanneling with Russia, his work for China, and his plans for Afghanistan. He defends it all in a new interview.
From The Daily Beast, by Ms Betsy Woodruff, 11 June 2018.
A comment attributed to Mr Erik Prince:
As I've said before, if Franklin Roosevelt can work with Joseph Stalin to defeat German fascism, Nazi fascism, national socialist fascism, then certainly Donald Trump can work with Putin to defeat Islamic fascism.It is more than this quote, and an interesting read.
I have to admit that between Putin and Stalin, I see Joseph Stalin as, by far, the more evil leader.
