Senator John McCain criticized US President Donald Trump after the latter said Saturday that he believes Russia didn’t meddle in the presidential election 2016.
"There's nothing 'America First' about taking the word of a KGB colonel over that of the American intelligence community. There's no 'principled realism' in cooperating with Russia to prop up the murderous Assad regime, which remains the greatest obstacle to a political solution that would bring an end to the bloodshed in Syria. Vladimir Putin does not have America's interests at heart. To believe otherwise is not only naive but also places our national security at risk."
The FBI is investigating attempts to intervene in the US presidential election of 2016 and possible links of the team of the current president, Donald Trump with the Kremlin. Trump himself repeatedly called such charges a witch hunt.
