Donald Trump’s Русский Magnetism
When one thinks of Russia, Donald Trump is hardly the first person to come to mind.
As an icon of American industry and capitalist success, the only apparent similarity between Trump and Mother Russia is his billionaire status, which would make him roughly comparable to a Russian oligarch.
Or so I THOUGHT.
I remember thinking that the much-hyped “divorce” of Trump and long-time political advisor, Roger Stone was chock full o’ drama…more than really seemed to make sense. As Stone explained to friend Jesse Ventura (remember him?), he and Trump “disagreed on some issues”. But it wasn’t until just recently that I discovered that Stone’s firm Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly and co-partner Paul Manafort advised close Kremlin ally, Viktor Yanukovych, in Ukraine’s presidential elections, in 2010.
