President Vladimir Putin praised the campaign of the candidate in US presidents from Republican party, Donald trump, speaking at the plenary session of the International discussion club “Valdai” (the live broadcast is channel “Russia 24”). According to Putin, trump chose the image of a “simple guy”.
“As for Mr. trump — he chose his own way to reach the hearts of voters. It is, of course, behave extravagantly, we all see it, but I think not so it’s all pointless,” he said (quoted by “Interfax”).
As Putin said, trump represents the interests of ordinary people, “that part of society who is tired of the elites in power”. “He works in this field. How it will be effective — elections will show,” — said Putin. He noticed at the same time, Russia will work with any President elected by the people of the United States.
From the answer to the question about the election campaign, Putin once again rejected the suspicion of Russia’s involvement in the election process in the United States. Opinion, that trump became a Russian favorite in this race, the Russian President called “complete nonsense and nonsense” and “way of manipulating public opinion on the eve of elections”.
Putin assured the participants of the “Valdai” that the press is no coincidence, there was an opinion that Russia made a bid for trump. “I rarely see when something accidentally is done by leading media, he said. — This idea was thrown into the public consciousness during the presidential campaign, in my opinion, with only one purpose — to fight those who defend Democratic candidates Mrs. Clinton” (quoted by “RIA Novosti”).
The trump has repeatedly stated that it could find common ground with Putin if he becomes President. During the last presidential debate, which took place on 20 October, trump said that the President’s relationship with the Russian leader he would have been better than that of his rival Hillary Clinton.
Even before trump announced that all problems with Russia due to the fact that the current leaders of the United States often insulted the Russian President. Trump noted that in the event of his victory in the elections would hold a meeting with Putin before his inauguration.
