“We must have business with Russia, we have to get along with Russia instead of pushing it into the arms of China,” Trump told Fox News television.
Former US President Donald Trump called his successor in office, Joe Biden, to normalize relations with Russia instead of favoring its rapprochement with China.
“We must have business with Russia, we have to get along with Russia instead of pushing it into the arms of China.”Trump told the television channel Fox News.
The ex-president warned that “Nothing can be worse than bringing China and Russia together”.
Trump noted that he got along well with Russian President Vladimir Putin despite disagreements and also with Chinese leader Xi Jinping, at least before the coronavirus pandemic.
Relations between the United States and Russia are at their lowest point since the cold war. On April 15, the Biden government imposed new sanctions against several citizens and entities of that country for alleged interference in the November 2020 elections, although it did not present evidence to support its claims.
The White House also accuses Moscow without proof of its alleged role in the cyberattack on the US firm SolarWinds.
