Donald Trump says Russia fakes made his job difficult during his presidency Trump called the reason “fakes about Russia”
Donald Trump said lying about Russia made his job difficult when he was President of the United States. His speech at a supporter rally in Arizona was broadcast by C-SPAN.
“People often ask me, <…> which country was the most difficult. With Russia? Or maybe with China or North Korea? With Iran? I answer: “No.” The most difficult country— this is the United States of America. We have crazy people here who create fakes about “Russia, Russia, Russia”— everything invented, everything fabricated, & mdash; said the ex-president.
During his presidency, Trump's opponents repeatedly accused him of colluding with Russia. In particular, it was about an attempt by Russia to interfere in the US presidential election in 2016 in order to influence the result of the vote and achieve a Republican victory.
In 2017, American intelligence published a report on this topic. Exploration “with a high degree of certainty” believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign to interfere in the US presidential election, the document says. The Kremlin dismissed the allegations contained in the report as unsubstantiated.
After that, Buzzfeed published a dossier about the contacts of members of the Trump campaign and the Russian special services and about Russia's compromising evidence on the president. Document Author— Christopher Steele, former British intelligence officer MI6. The Kremlin has denied data on compromising evidence on Trump.
The ex-US President himself has repeatedly called such reports “fake news”. and “witch hunts”. Putin also said that one of the purposes of the accusations against Trump is to impose sanctions to contain Russia.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who led the investigation into collusion and interference, found no evidence of Trump administration collusion with Russia. However, the special counsel's report said that Russia interfered in the election to help Trump and escalate tensions in society. Russia denied involvement in the interference and put forward counterclaims.
In the fall of 2021, Trump demanded to deprive The New York Post and Washington Post of Pulitzer Perms, which the publications received in 2018 for articles investigating Russian interference in the elections. The former president once again denied information about collusion with Moscow.
