“The President will do everything possible to defend the interests of the United States. This applies to all areas – from the protection of the interests of the American taxpayers to work with other countries to protect national security or economic interests of the United States” – said the press Secretary, who was quoted by TASS.
“The United States can get along with Russia, because Donald trump sure knows how to make deals…And if he succeeds, he will sign a deal which would be in the best interests of our country,” added the spokesman, noting that trump’s not afraid of the criticism of his opponents who hold anti-Russian sentiment.
For its part the 45th President of the United States has repeatedly expressed willingness to participate in negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin to exit from the crisis of bilateral relations, which resulted in ill-conceived foreign policy of his predecessor, Barack Obama. However, trump promises only to “try” not giving any guarantees that US policy towards Russia will be soft, and the relations between the two countries will certainly improve.
