WASHINGTON (Talk Media News) – Russian President Vladimir praised Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump as “very talented” during a press briefing on Thursday.
“He is a very flamboyant man, very talented, no doubt about that,” Putin said, according to a report in the Daily Mail. “He says he wants to move to … a deeper level of relations with Russia.”
“Of course we welcome it,” Putin added.
During the CNN Republican debate in Los Angeles this November, Trump suggested that he had a very close relationship with Putin after sharing a spot on 60 Minutes. The two men, however, were interviewed separately in their respective countries.
