Putin praises Trump's 'serious' economic feats, blasts Russian Federation probe as a 'delirium'

Russian President Vladimir Putin gives his annual end-of-year news conference in Moscow on Thursday

The Kremlin made a point of noting that Mr Trump initiated the call.

Given access to the presidential Twitter feed, one needn't be a former K.G.B. agent to figure out what makes the ex-beauty pageant owner tick: Fox News=good.

After his press conference, Putin got on the phone with Trump and mainly discussed the North Korean nuclear problem, according to a brief readout provided by the Kremlin. "With all due respect to [Trump's] opponents, these are objective facts".

Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday offered warm words for United States leader Donald Trump, dismissing allegations of links between the Kremlin and the White House as "some sort of spy mania".

Since taking office, Mr Trump has made a series of contrasting comments about whether he believes the Russians were involved in disrupting last year's election - as America's intelligence agencies have concluded.

"Look at the markets, which have grown". That shows investors' confidence in the American economy.

Shortly after Trump made his remarks to reporters at the White House on December 15, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on Russian Federation and China to do more to pressure North Korea, and charged that Moscow continues to employ North Korean workers in "slave-like conditions".

The bright object could be seen from various parts of the metro, but most calls came from the west side of town. Its unusual orbit will see it pass closer to the sun than any other named asteroid.

He also accused those investigating potential collusion between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign of damaging the U.S. political situation, "incapacitating the president and showing a lack of respect to voters who cast their ballots for him".

Macierewicz said in a radio interview that Putin "should have the courage to take responsibility for what has happened".

To most people, it's obvious that Putin's remarks were carefully crafted to play our egomaniac president like a fiddle.

He emphasised that Russian Federation opposes Pyongyang's nuclear bid, but added the United States had "provoked" Pyongyang into developing its nuclear and missile programs by spiking a 2005 deal under which North Korea agreed to halt them.

"The two presidents also discussed working together to resolve the very unsafe situation in North Korea", added the White House.

US Defence Secretary Rex Tillerson said he didn't expect North Korea to drop its weapons programme, but would happily even discuss the weather if it meant Washington and Pyongyang were sitting around the same table.
