He’s not stupid enough to believe Russia can win vs US (and EU) in a full blown arms race.

Pretty sure you’re looking at this wrong.

I forget where I saw it but a better frame is

Trump (with a wink): Putin, how dare you rob a bank in violation of the law! We are super upset and as a result we are nullifying the law against robbing banks so we too can rob banks!!

This is happening because Putin's been breaking the treaty for years already, so it's dumb for the US to still abide by it. We also have a treaty breaking missile in the works.

Purchase thousands of extremely expensive nuclear weapons from your childhood friend who coincidentally happened to get awarded the contract and who definitely DEFINITELY isn't giving you a piece of the profits

My guess is that Trump does not believe one word of that tweet (I mean that literally, not one word).

Unfortunately black face was not terribly socially shocking in 1984. It was a pretty common bit.

Soul Man came out in 1986.
