I think part of it is that Putin is the sort of character that Trump dreams of being. Both are extremely narcissistic sociopaths and as such the only thing that matters to them is their personal desires. Their extremely autocratic and have the attitude they give orders and others obey them. However while Trump had the 'disadvantage' of being in a democracy Putin was able to destroy a faltering and weak democracy and get the sort of autocratic state that as far as he's concerned only exists to meet his needs. Unlike Trump who was removed after 4 years Putin has been in untrammeled power for 20+ years and steadily built up his personality cult and personal power and wealth and Trump admires that.
