Former US President Donald Trump reacted to the aggravation of relations between Washington and Moscow.
The American politician noted that he got along well with his Russian counterpart. Donald Trump said that there was mutual sympathy between him and Vladimir Putin. “I liked him, and he liked me,” he stressed.
In an interview with Fox News, the Republican spoke in favor of improving relations between the two states. According to Trump, the current head of the White House, Joe Biden, should be more friendly and do business with Russia instead of pushing it towards closer cooperation with China.
The politician also said that numerous fake news about his connection with Moscow prevented him from concluding profitable economic deals. Trump believes the United States could get a lot of money from Russia. “It has excellent natural resources,” he explained.
Last Thursday, April 15, Washington imposed sanctions on Moscow. More than 30 Russian officials and companies were subject to restrictions for allegedly trying to interfere in the course of the American elections. In addition, the US authorities announced their intention to expel ten diplomats.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the US of a mirror response. He noted that ten employees of the American embassy will also receive an offer to leave Moscow. How ordinary residents of the States reacted to the words of the head of the department, you will learn from this article.
