MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. There is no "reset button" for mending ties with Russia, which will either improve or not, US President-elect Donald Trump said at a news conference in New York on Wednesday.
"Russia will have far greater respect for our country when I'm leading it and I believe and I hope maybe it won't happen, it's possible. But I won't be giving a little reset button like Hillary. Here, press this piece of plastic. A guy looked at her like what is she doing? There's no reset button. We're either going to get along or we're not. I hope we get along, but if we don't, that's possible too." Trump said.
"Russia, China, Japan, Mexico, all countries will respect us far more, far more than they do under past administrations," he claimed.
Speaking about hacking attacks, Trump said that the US had "to work something out."
"It's not just Russia," he added. "Take a look at what's happened. You don't report it the same way; 22 million accounts were hacked in this country by China. And that's because we have no defense."
During the presidential race, Trump reiterated that his Democratic US presidential rival Hillary Clinton had failed in resetting the relations between Russia and the United States. The US-Russian ties deteriorated due to mistakes made by Clinton and Barack Obama’s administration, Trump said.
