NEW YORK, February 6. /TASS/. US President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News television channel that he had "a respect" for Russian President Vladimir Putin but had "no idea" whether he would get along with the leader of Russia.
Asked whether he had a respect for Russian President Putin, Trump said, "I do respect him," but added that it did not mean that they would both get along.
"I respect a lot of people but it does not mean I am going to get along with him," Trump said. "He is a leader of his country."
"I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not," the US president continued. "And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world that’s a good thing. … Will I get along with him? I have no idea."
Speaking about Western accusations in regard to Russia and its leadership, Trump said "What do you think? Our country is so innocent?"
Trump, who was sworn in as the US president last month, held a telephone conversation with Russia’s Putin on January 28. According to the Kremlin, the conversation was held in a positive and businesslike atmosphere.
