Carol Costello: Russia’s Not a Superpower, Putin Just Wants Us to Think It Is

CNN’s Carol Costello said that Russia wasn’t a superpower anymore and that Putin played nice with Trump because standing in the president-elect’s inner orbit would bestow the “illusion” of power.

“I think Russia yearns again to be a superpower, right? It’s not a superpower right now. Its economy is in the tank, right?” she said. “And to appear on the same stage as the American president might give the illusion that Russia is again a superpower.”
