WASHINGTON, July 13 â€” RIA Novosti, Dmitry Zlatarev. The US President Donald trump said that during the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin behaved very harshly.
Putin and trump for the first time personally talked on the sidelines of the summit of “big twenty” in Hamburg last Friday. Their meeting lasted more than two hours.
“I was very rigid in dealing with Putin,” said trump in an interview with Reuters. At the same time, he stressed that the two presidents “is a very important relationship that can save many lives, for example, the ceasefire (in Syria)”.
Trump also admitted that he would like to ask the Russian leader, whether he supported it during the election campaign. “I would like to ask Putin if he really supported me”, â€” said the head of the White house.
He stressed that during its presidency, has taken a number of steps which, in his opinion, should not be like Moscow.
“Look what I did. The price of oil went down. We are sending liquefied natural gas to Poland. That’s not what Putin wants. We also added $ 56 billion on military equipment compared to last year’s budget. Putin just doesn’t want it, so why should he support me?” â€” said trump.
