Putin spoke at the G-20 summit in Germany where he revealed some details about his meeting with President Trump. While CNN reporters are theorizing that the two planned how to rig the 2020 election together, quite the opposite happened.
“The Trump you see on TV is very different from Trump the real person. He’s very specific, he’s able to understand what you tell him, he analyzes your words pretty quickly, and he’s able to respond. He answers your questions or he responds to whatever may come up in the course of discussion,” said Putin.
He was asked by a reporter if the two of them talked about Russian interference in the election. “The U.S. president did raise the question about this issue, and we did talk about it. There is no reason to believe that Russia meddled in U.S. elections,” said Putin.
“What he did is he asked a lot of questions about this and I responded to all those questions as much as I could, so I think that he did accept what I said, but you have to ask him what he thinks about all of this,” said Putin.
“I think we were able to establish a relationship. I think if we keep going like that, if we keep building our relationship like we did yesterday, there is every reason to believe that we will be able to restore, at least partially, the level of interaction that we need,” said Putin.
