Donald Trump: Troublemaker or the Next US President?

Donald Trump: Troublemaker or Next US President?
Billionaire Donald Trump jumped to the top of the list of Republican presidential hopefuls, negating old-style politics and saying he would get along very well with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

Thus far, “The Donald” has taken swipes at most of his fellow Republican challengers, including most recently John McCain and Lindsey Graham, and his popularity doesn’t seem the least bit affected by it at all. In fact, it seems like the more the media and other politicians attack him, the more popular he gets. He also has enough of his own money to fund his campaign without contributions and political action committee support, meaning that he could theoretically stay in the race until the end of the primary season.

It was reported that when asked by an audience in Las Vegas earlier this month about U.S.-Russia relations, Mr.Trump said the problem is that Putin doesn't respect Obama. "I think we would get along very, very well," Mr.Trump was reported as saying. Now that he’s voiced his opinions about President Putin, Trump and all his previous spotlight-grabbing actions are also  being discussed out here in Russia.

Alexander Domrin, professor of law at the Higher School of Economics (studio guest) and Chris Shipler, American political commentator shared their views on the issue.
