  • Russia (#3)
  • China (#4)
  • the United Arab Emirates (#8)
  • the until-recently Jair-Bolsonaro-led Brazil (#9)
  • Venezuela (#12)
  • Trump’s new lender by one degree of separation (at most) are from Saudi Arabia, Russia, China, the UAE, Brazil, or Venezuela—all nations whose leaders Trump has colluded with or attempted to collude with over the last nine years—are very high. - Seth Abrambson
