Yet if it’s enemies of the state Maduro is after, one threat looms larger than any ­other.

The Kremlin is done betting on Trump and planning how to strike back against U.S. sanctions

Your geopolitical nemesis is suffering a political meltdown and says you’re partly to blame. Angry legislators have slapped you with new sanctions, which their president says he will sign. What’s a resurgent autocracy to do? In Moscow, it’s time for some game theory.

In his readout of the first meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised the desire of both presidents to forget about the past — and move on.

Because it’s not clear to me that we will ever come to some agreed-upon resolution of that question between the two nations.”
