Foreign Policy: Russia meddled in our elections, but engagement is better than no engagement.

There has been a lot of controversy about President Trump's trip to Russia and his remarks on whether Russia meddled in the U.S. elections. President Trump said he misspoke when he said why "would" Russia meddle when he meant why "wouldn't." In my view, the US administration should be in full support of law enforcement agencies. We appreciate the President recognized he misspoke and stepped back. That said, we think the media is missing the bigger picture which is President Trump's willingness to engage with Russia - a big positive. We have to engage because Russia is too important geopolitically. Moreover, an engagement will help us solve some of the trickier and more difficult problems in Syria, North Korea, and Ukraine.
