The Putin Trump alliance

The US is a superpower because it has influence around the world. One of the ways it retains power is through the Nato alliance. Nato is a group of Western countries who have been working together to keep some stability, especially in Europe. Putin doesnt like Nato because it effectively stops Russia from having a lot of influence in Europe. If one Nato country gets invaded then the whole of Nato have agreed to defend that nation. Trump has stated that he will not defend Nato countries. This gives Russia a free pass to move in and start becoming more influencial in Europe. We have already seen that Russia wants to extend its influence in the world by their military action Georgia, Ukraine and Syria. So if Trump is soft on Russia then America will lose influence around the world and Russia will become more powerful.
