Russia’s Trump Card? The Prospects for Russia–US Relations After the Election of Donald Trump

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The unexpected election of Donald Trump appears to offer the Russian government hope of both improved bilateral relations with the US and a more favourable international political climate. However, Trump’s apparent interest in improving relations with Russia are at odds with the position of his own party, and this obstacle may be compounded both by Trump’s temperament and his lack of foreign policy experience. Not surprisingly, the Russian government has adopted a cautious approach to the incoming administration, and there currently appears to be little reason to expect a sustained and significant improvement in US–Russia relations.
