Trump doesn’t have to be Putin’s agent. It’s bad enough that he is a fan

It’s quite a contrast. In 1984, Ronald Reagan won re-election with the help, in part, of a TV ad that began with the memorable line, “There’s a bear in the woods.” Without ever mentioning Soviet Russia by name, the ad played on cold war fears to suggest that only Reagan was prepared to face down the menace from the east. Back then, it was taken 'as read' that the US Republican party would stand strong against an authoritarian, undemocratic regime in Moscow.

That’s not quite how it looks today....
