Is Vladimir Putin joining forces with Donald Trump and deliberately trying to sabotage any hopes of Hillary Clinton winning the US Presidency? According to President Barack Obama, we shouldn’t rule this possibility out. President Obama came out recently and stated that Russian President Vladimir Putin could be attempting to tip the US presidential election toward Donald Trump. These comments came after US officials reported this week that there is strong evidence that the Democratic National Committee data breach was carried out by Russian hackers.
Excerpt From CNN:
“Anything’s possible,” Obama responded when asked during an interview whether Russians could be working to influence the contest between Republican nominee Trump and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. “Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed admiration for Vladimir Putin,” Obama said during the sit-down with NBC News that aired Tuesday. “And I think that Trump’s gotten pretty favorable coverage back in Russia.”
