Our guest is Dr. Randy Stone, director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester. Stone will explain which issues concern him regarding Trump and Russia, and which do not. We'll talk about Trump's recent comments regarding Crimea and defending NATO allies as well.
