Vladimir Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday said the outgoing U.S. presidential administration of Barack Obama has been trying to delegitimize president-elect Donald Trump.

“Such actions are harming the interests of the United States, and that harm is enormous’’ Putin told a press conference, according to comments carried by state media.
Putin denounced as “fake” a report recently published by U.S. media that Russian authorities supposedly had compromising information about Trump with prostitutes on a visit to Moscow several years ago.
Putin said those behind the report were “worse than prostitutes”.
He also expressed doubt that Trump would hire prostitutes while in Moscow as an organizer of a beauty contest who “associated with the world’s most beautiful girls”.
Trump has repeatedly expressed intentions to rebuild U.S.-Russian relations, which are currently at their frostiest point since the Cold War amid disputes over Syria and Ukraine.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    I agree Trump de-legitimized himself with his big mouth and twitter fingers. How come there have been a myriad of Presidents being elected all these years from both the Republican and Democratic party but he alone is the only one drawing so many complaints?
