Russians in America

 I am sure such a title has been used many times. And every time the following story had little to do with the subject matter of my thoughts reflected here.

By "Russians", I mean those Russian speakers who have come and are still coming from the former Soviet Union.

Some time ago a discussion happened among my friends about Russian immigrants and their political preferences. The discussion was a result of the recent American political turbulence, specifically the election of Donald Trump. Trump’s ascent to the top of the political Olympus occurred against all expectations.
