Putin has spoken previously of his hope that Trump will help restore US-Russia relations, as relationship between the the world super power countries are at an all time low.
The Russian President said;
“Trump was an entrepreneur and a businessman. He is already a statesman, he is the head of the United States of America, one of the world's leading countries. Because he achieved success in business, it suggests that he is a clever man. And if he's a clever man, then he will fully and quite quickly understand another level of responsibility. We assume that he will be acting from these positions."The Russian president praised Trump a year ago, telling journalists that the business mogul was a 'bright and talented person without any doubt', with an 'outstanding and talented personality'.
Vladimir Putin also spoke on Russia’s relations with the West.
