The journalist asked Trump why he never had a harsh word for Vladimir Putin.
‘I didn't? I'm the one that gave Ukraine offensive weapons and tank killers. Obama didn't. You know what he sent? He sent pillows and blankets,’ Trump answered.
Also, he claimed that he is very tough with Putin personally. In particular at the meeting in Helsinki in July this year. However, the US President couldn’t clearly answer the question of whether Vladimir Putin is involved in assassinations and poisonings.
Trump admitted that Russia interfered in the US Presidential Elections, however, he changed the topic by saying that China has also interfered.
It was reported earlier that Trump and Putin may meet next time in Helsinki in the spring of 2019.
