Summary/Abstract: The paper addresses the US media perception of the Russia-threat following the election of Donald Trump as the United States’ President. Trump’s election revealed a major value divide within the American society. The Russia issue became central in the new internal divide between the Trump administration and the liberal establishment. To the latter the Russia story was more about Trump than Russia. If the two countries are to move beyond viewing each other as potential enemies, they must find a way to reframe their values in nonconfrontational terms.
