Russia To Trump: You Promised
According to Bloomberg, Russia is calling in their marker and insisting that Trump live up to his remarks about warming relations between the U.S. and Russia.
The White House’s call for Russia to return Crimea to Ukraine is at odds with Trump’s pre-election pledge to improve relations, Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the Russian lower house of parliament, told lawmakers Wednesday, the Interfax news service reported.
Crimea is a part of Russia and its status won’t be discussed with the U.S., while news reports that Russian intelligence officers met with members of Trump’s election campaign “aren’t based on any facts,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.
And no, Russia did not fly jets near a U.S. warship in the Black Sea last week, according to the Defense Ministry in Moscow.
The warships that close to Russia got them nervous, and has nothing to do with Trump, he claims.
