Robert Baer, a former CIA operative and CNN analyst, told anchor Wolf Blitzer that the Russians did not expect President Trump to be as tough as he has been.

Discussing the Russian Federation’s new “Satan 2” ICBM, Baer said that the Russian view of the United States is grim.

“The Russians are very disappointed with Donald Trump,” he said. “They think we’re heading back into a Cold War.”

“They got something they didn’t expect [in Trump],” the former CIA operative added. “They’re still upset about Ukraine, about Crimea.”

Putin continues to see the United States as Russia’s number one rival, even under Trump, he said.
