When I speak to Trumpers, they say things like, "why not be friends with Russia, why be enemies?". The math is really simple. Russia is not a democracy, it is a giant gangster ran state. The mob in Russia is literally an association of the government. The people in charge in Russia do not want to be like Americans. They do not want anything good for America nor anyone else, and they never will. Money, power and influence are all they want, and terrifyingly this seems to be reflected in Trump and a lot of folks in our country.
Some republicans I've spoken to say things like, I'll never vote democrat, they kill babies. So incredibly naive. As a democrat, I can assure anyone that I have never killed a baby, and to my point, I have sure never shot up a school, either.
