Sometime in the spring, date unknown, Donald Trump grills Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Bernard Lown about his meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev.
Lown is under the impression that he’s having lunch with Trump to discuss funding for cardiovascular research, but Trump has a different plan. He needs to know about Gorbachev. He’s going to call the president and become an ambassador to the Soviet Union.
Lown spends 20 minutes going over his meeting with Gorbachev and answering questions about how the de facto leader of the Soviet Union behaves. It’s the first and last time that Lown ever encounters Donald Trump.
This is just the latest story of Trump’s interest in working with Russia. He made his interest public about two years ago, but no one knows his motivation. Trump becomes even more vocal about working with Russia’s military after meeting the KGB in Moscow. He starts calling nuclear war “The Subject.”
