Some Americans believe Putin more than the Democrats – Obama

Incumbent President Barack Obama said that some Americans, primarily supporters of the Republican party, believe Russian President Vladimir Putin than the Democrats. About this American leader said in an interview with ABC, reports TASS.


“We have recently seen a lot of comments, which suggests that there are Republicans, experts or the leading television, which seem to have more trust in Vladimir Putin than to fellow Americans, because those are the Democrats,” Obama said.


Obama also stressed that the elected President of the United States Donald Trump must remember that he is in a team with other political figures of the United States, not President of Russia.


“I will only say one thing, I said it after the election, we need to remind ourselves that we are on the same team. Vladimir Putin is not on our team”, – he said.


Previously elected President of the United States Donald trump in an interview with The New York Times called “witch hunt” statement of the American authorities about the Russian involvement in hacking attacks on the servers of the Democratic party during the presidential election.
