Deploying a new cruise missile in the face of US complaints that it violates a key arms treaty and telling Washington it would not give back the Crimean Peninsula as Trump has demanded as it step up support for pro Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine.>> It seems like a illegitimate characterization to say that President Putin and his government are testing the current administration in the early days, watching how President Trump navigates his position as the leader of the free world, and the head of the US military.

00:01:46
And that's a shame.>> Still, Trump defiantly declaring that he still has a better chance where everyone else former presidents Obama and Bush and Hillary Clinton included have failed.>> But I'm different than those people.
