Trump: Only ‘Stupid’ People are against US relations with Russia
At NYPOST by Kathianne Boriello --
Americans against good U.S. relations with Russia are “stupid,” the president-elect tweeted on Saturday.
Under fire for refusing to denounce what U.S. intelligence officials insist is Russian interference in the 2016 election, Donald Trump said the nation needs warmer relations with its longtime adversary.
“Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only ‘stupid’ people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We . . . have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now,” Trump tweeted.
Trump continued to blame the ongoing Russian hacking controversy on the Democratic National Committee’s porous computer security and insisted the exposure of the private DNC e-mails did not sway the election.
