Russia Sees Donald Trump As Conduit For Eased Sanctions


Trump lambasted the show "Saturday Night Live", on which he is played by actor Alec Baldwin.

A Muslim student was allegedly assaulted aboard a U.S. subway train by three drunk white men who repeatedly screamed "Donald Trump!" and hurled anti- Islam slurs before trying to rip her hijab off, the latest in a slew of incidents in which headscarf-clad women have been targeted. "Totally biased, not amusing".

Trump has long said he would release his taxes following the completion of an audit. -China relations when he referred to Taiwan's leader as "president" following a phone call this past week or was it an unintentional misstep? It the first by a USA president-elect or president since Jimmy Carter changed diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China in 1979, recognizing Taiwan as part of "one China". -China relations hinge upon the so-called "one-China" policy. When asked if there might be a follow-up phone call to Chinese leaders this week, Pence said probably not.

Russian President Vladimir Putin thinks Donald Trump is "clever" and can handle the presidency. "He is already a statesman, he is the head of the United States of America, one of the world's leading countries", NTV quoted Putin as saying in the interview on on Sunday.

Mr Trump's stance on Russian Federation was heavily scrutinised throughout his presidential campaign, and he has made clear that he respects Russia's leader.

He added that "if he is a smart man, that means that he will fairly soon become aware of a different level of responsibility. We expect him to act with this stance in mind", he added. "Trump was an entrepreneur and a businessman".

Trump campaigned on a vow to help American workers but also to reduce taxes and regulations on businesses.

He says companies should be "forewarned prior to making a very expensive mistake".
