I seriously don't know how anyone could look at the attacks coming at Trump from all angles and still believe he doesn't pose any threat to them.
In December, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova publicly acknowledged the contact between Russia and the Afghan Taliban involves intelligence-sharing and cooperation to fight their mutual enemy, the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL. (Feb. 16, 2017)
MOSCOW — A Kremlin official said Wednesday that Russia was exchanging information with the Taliban, the Islamist insurgency that the United States has been fighting in Afghanistan since 2001, as a bulwark against the spread of the Islamic State militant group in that country.
if anything the "deep state" is working overtime to achieve some sort of stability in the Middle East so our allies in Europe stop getting attacked by crazed Islamic militants.
“I’m gonna build a military that’s gonna be much stronger than it is right now,” the real- estate-mogul-turned-tautological-demagogue said on Meet the Press. “It’s gonna be so strong, nobody’s gonna mess with us. But you know what? We can do it for a lot less.”
President Trump put both political parties on notice Monday that he intends to slash spending on many of the federal government’s most politically sensitive programs — relating to education, the environment, science and poverty — to protect the economic security of retirees and to shift billions more to the armed forces.
The proposal to increase military spending by $54 billion and cut nonmilitary programs by the same amount was unveiled by White House officials as they prepared the president’s plans for next year’s federal budget.
Trump will continue propagating the established agenda in the ME without a doubt, and has indicated he wants to expand the US presence in the ME which will require an increase in defense spending, despite the fact the US already spends more on defense than the next several biggest spenders combined. Believe it or not a healthy war economy is actually good for weapons manufacturers and the largest manufacturers are based in the US, and I'm sure Trump is well aware of that fact.

So you don't think government agencies are really worried and concerned with Trump attempting to cozy up to Russia knowing the information I just presented proving that Russia is working with our enemy?
Also, why we would go to war with Iran? What strategic role would that play? Oil is on it's way out the door, if anything the "deep state" is working overtime to achieve some sort of stability in the Middle East so our allies in Europe stop getting attacked by crazed Islamic militants.
fighting terrorist does cost money and he has done a great deal to secure peace in the ME by hitting ISIS hard in several countries and stopping the support of terrorist rebels in Syria so that their government can regain control and civility
stopping the support of terrorist rebels in Syria
When it comes to Russia I also think his approach is a good one
Also worth noting is the nations which Assad says have been helping him: Russia, Iran, China. These nations have some sort of unspoken alliance amongst themselves just as nations like the US, UK, and Israel have an implicit alliance amongst themselves. I learned some time ago that the world can really be broken down into these two major players, often referred to as simply the Western alliance and the Eastern Alliance, and most global conflicts can be understood through the lense of these alliances.
Interview with Assad
Must be a mind-blowing concept to wrap your exceptional heads around, but the idea of sovereignty isn't that bad after all.
