Putin says US administration trying to undermine Trump

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the outgoing US administration of trying to undermine President-elect Donald Trump by spreading fake allegations.

Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, Putin described a dossier on Trump as part of efforts by President Barack Obama's administration to “undermine the legitimacy of the president-elect” despite his “convincing” victory, AP reported.

Putin mocked claims that Russia was behind an unsubstantiated dossier on Trump.

“Trump, when he came to Moscow (in 2013), was not any kind of political figure,” Putin told a press conference. “Does anyone think that our special services chase every American billionaire? Of course not, it’s just completely ridiculous”.
