"I wonder what the total cost of being made President is and when will Russia collect"

They're already collecting; the USA is already degraded in its ability to operate overseas, NATO is already less effective due to concerns that, should the need arise, the USA won't respond as expected.

And it's not just the USA; the loss of the UK means the EU is weakened in its dealings with Russia, so Putin is winning on a number of fronts in international politics.

If the Russians played a small part in getting Trump into the White House, it's not necessarily because Trump is their man; as long as he's less effective against Putin that the alternatives then its a win for Putin.
