The Donald shares a letter from Vlad
December 15, 2016
PRESIDENT-ELECT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Dear Mr. Trump,
Please accept my warmest Christmas and New Year greetings.
Serious global and regional challenges, which our countries have to face in recent years, show that the relations between Russia and the U.S. remain an important factor in ensuring stability and security of the modern world.
I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America we will be able — by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner — to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level.
Please accept my sincere wishes to you and your family of sound health,
happiness, wellbeing, success and all the best.
Дональд Трамп & Владимир Путин
After praising his Russian counterpart, President-elect Trump released a Christmas letter Putin sent him.
“A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct,” Trump said. “I hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts, and we do not have to travel an alternate path.”
Russia has been accused of influencing the U.S. election in favor of Trump, the candidate much preferred by Putin over the hated Hillary Clinton. Putin denied any Russian involvement.
