Putin's crappy economy is not admirable

NY Times:
President Vladimir V. Putin shows skill at rallying the support of the Russian public no matter what the circumstances.
The cost of his "strength" has been crippling sanctions at a time when the price of oil has cratered because of the US shale revolution.  I do not think Trump could admire his economic performance.  Perhaps he just likes the way Putin ignores Obama.
