And the top, judging by the comments in the American press, is ready to accept Trump's "cool cowboy" for granted. It did not work with the “rocket man” Kim Jong-un - see how cleverly it turns out against the “animal Assad”.

Trump is trying to return to the format of what he holds his presidential word.
