MOSCOW, June 5. /TASS/. Donald Trump’s extraordinary magnetism positively resonated with US voters and helped him win the presidential race, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov, said, commenting on Vladimir Putin’s "the man is hamming it up" remark about Trump.
"It was absolutely clear from the context he was speaking about the election campaign, that, naturally, like anywhere in the world, our media were rather active, they broadcasted Trump’s speeches, snippets of his talks with supporters and so on," the press secretary said.
"What the president meant is that back then Trump’s magnetism, of course, was different from that of the other candidates, and the election's outcome showed that US voters preferred that charisma."
At a plenary session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum the Russian president spoke about the West.
"The problem is not here. The problem is inside US politics. That’s where it lies," he said. "The Trump team turned out to be more effective in that election campaign. I sometimes stopped to think: ‘Well, the man is hamming it up!’ In the end it turned out that he was right. He managed to get through to groups of the population, to groups of voters that he put his stake on."
As for the rival candidate’s team, Putin said, they miscalculated everything and refuse to recognize their own mistakes.
