Obama Says Trump Has Opportunity to Reach Arms Deal With Russia

I think I would get along very well.

Putin ridiculed those behind the dossier for alleging Russian spy agencies collected compromising material on Trump when he visited Moscow in 2013 for the Miss Universe pageant. "It was because the independence and sovereignty of a country, Ukraine, had been encroached upon by force by Russia", Mr Obama told reporters at his final presidential press conference.

Well, sounds like Putin knows all about "puttin" on the ritz!'

"He was just a businessman, one of the richest people in America".

In an interview this week, Trump slammed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as obsolete and talked of making "good deals with Russia", talking of reducing nuclear weapons and floating the idea of lifting sanctions imposed by the United States in response to Moscow's annexation of Crimea and its military support for the Syrian government.

He said US intelligence agencies have failed to produce any evidence to back those claims, adding that officials who engaged in the effort "deserve to be fired, as they receive their salaries for nothing".

In the newly unearthed footage, uncovered by political opposition researchers and released by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, the president-elect tells conservative radio host Michael Savage in 2015 that he met Putin many years ago and that they "got along great". "I think that maybe there will be a slight rapprochement at the top level, but they will keep following their own course", said Moscow resident Sergei Pugachev.

"For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that's part of it".


In an interview Monday with The Wall Street Journal, Brennan described the comparison to the Nazi's as "repugnant" and said Trump's criticism of the intelligence community's credibility was unwarranted.

Still, Europe's leaders are eager to ensure they have Trump's ear before Putin does.

US sanctions on Russian Federation are based on its actions in Ukraine and aren't related to a nuclear weapons deal, Obama said.

But Trump now has no plans to meet with Putin, according to the senior adviser, who insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the transition team's internal planning.

He arrived here and immediately ran off to meet Moscow prostitutes?

Putin made the statement while answering questions about the incoming US President during a news conference held at the Kremlin with his Moldovan counterpart Igor Dodon, according to CBS News.

Reuters has not independently verified the claims contained in the dossier. James Clapper, director of national intelligence, has said the dossier was not produced by US intelligence agencies and they have not judged whether the information is reliable.

President-elect Donald Trump has garnered much criticism for his allegedly close ties to Russian Federation and its strongman leader President Vladimir Putin.
