This is exactly right. There is a tendency to see Trump as a Teflon 
president after the fashion of Ronald Reagan but he comes into office 
with the lowest approval rating of any president in recent memory. The 
CIA and NSA tops are filled with Russophobes. Despite the tendency to 
see RT.com and Breitbart as hegemonic, there are many men in their 60s 
and 70s who are quite hostile to the idea of the USA and Russia bonding 
after the fashion of FDR and Stalin.
