Stephen Cohen Challenges ‘Mob Violence’ Reaction to Trump-Putin Meeting

Cohen presented a powerful analysis of this reaction in an interview with host Tucker Carlson at Fox News. “The reaction by most of the media, by the Democrats, by the anti-Trump people, is like mob violence,” Cohen says to start off his insightful analysis.
