Garry Kasparov is Chairman of the Human Rights Foundation, Russian pro-democracy leader, former world chess champion and author of “Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the enemies of the free world must be stopped.” On the Federalist Radio Hour, Kasparov gives analysis of Russian politics and the dynamics between Putin and Donald Trump.
It is starting to become clear that Putin’s political intentions may go beyond the surrounding European countries, and into the U.S. “For Putin and other world leaders…they can no longer pretend to be democratic leaders,” Kasparov said. “Their goal is to drag everyone else down to their level, and of course Putin saw Trump as a perfect agent of chaos.”
Kasparov said he doesn’t believe that the Republican party will be able to recover after this election. “I think we are facing a major shift in domestic U.S. politics because both parties are no longer capable, in my view, of presenting coalitions that can move forward under one roof,” he said.
