President of the United States of America Donald Trump called himself a philanthropist - a man who loves other people, including Russian citizens. Thus, the head of the White House intervened in a dispute between former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a member of the House of Representatives from the state of Hawaii, one of the candidates for the presidency in 2020 from the Tulsi Gabbard Democratic Party.
“Selling Hillary again for the old. Hillary called Tulsi Gabbard the “favorite of Russia,” and Jill Stein the “Russian asset.” As you probably heard, I was also called a great lover of Russia (indeed, I like Russian people, I like all people!), ”Trump wrote on Twitter.
At the end of the post on the social network, the head of the White House expressed doubt about the adequacy of his opponent in the 2016 presidential election.
“Hillary is crazy!” Added the 45th US president.
Earlier, former State Department head Hillary Clinton, in an interview with the Campaign HQ podcast, called Donald Trump “Vladimir Putin’s dream” and talked about “Kremlin plans” for the 2020 US election campaign. In her opinion, Russia will again intervene in the US elections, but now this will be done with the help of a “female candidate from the third party”, which Moscow is purposefully preparing for this, using many “sites, bots and other means” to support it.

“This is if Jill Stein (US presidential candidate from the Green Party in 2012 and 2016. - RT ) refuses to participate in the election race, which may not happen, because she is also a Russian agent. Yes, she is a Russian agent, there is no doubt about it. They know that they cannot win without a candidate from the third party, ”added the former US Secretary of State.
Clinton reacted to the statement by Tulsi Gabbard, who has been the target of attacks by the American media over the past few months. One of the reasons is the disagreement with the United States conducting hostilities around the world, in particular in Syria, where she visited in 2017 and met with Bashar al-Assad. Another is that the politician does not refuse to provide comments to RT and Sputnik, which led to accusations of “ties to the Kremlin,” receiving money “from Putin’s supporters,” and favor from “Russian propaganda.”
"Fine! Thanks, Hillary Clinton. You, the queen among the instigators of war, the personification of corruption and the personification of the rot that has been eating the Democratic Party for so long, has finally come out of the wings. From the moment I nominated myself, there has been a staged campaign to destroy my reputation. We tried to understand who was behind her and why. Now we know: all this time it was you, through your henchmen and powerful allies in the corporate media and in the war machine, ”Gabbard wrote on Twitter.
She added that Clinton considers her a “threat”, and urged the former secretary of state to speak with her at the primaries, thus joining the race for the presidency. Congresswoman also emphasized that Hillary Clinton labels traitors and foreign agents against those who oppose the "regime change wars" in which Washington is mired.
"Trump does not confirm his good attitude by any deeds"
According to Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense Yuri Shvytkin, the internal political confrontation, which incites his statements to Hillary Clinton, is to the detriment of the policy to resolve relations between the United States and Russia.
“Of course, the leader of each state primarily cares about the national interests of its country. Donald Trump is no exception, caring for the interests of the people of the United States. The course taken for a constructive dialogue with many states, including Russia, confirms that Trump wants to move from militant rhetoric to constructive cooperation for the good of the Americans. Hillary Clinton is again trying to create from him a certain outcast. This indicates her resentment because of the loss in the election race and focus on the next presidential election, ”the parliamentarian said in an interview with RT.
In turn, an expert at the International Institute for Humanitarian and Political Studies, Vladimir Bruter, believes that Trump’s words about love for people, in particular Russians, can lead to criticism from American political elites.
“The good attitude of the American leader towards Russia has never raised doubts. However ... he treats all those whom he considers strong enough to be good, respects those who are ready to compete with him. But the question is that for Russia this is largely indifferent, because Trump does not confirm his good attitude with any deeds, ”the source said.
In early October, the US president again pointed out that no one acts harder in Russia than he does. At the same time, the American leader clarified that it would be good to "get along" with Moscow, since this is a "reasonable" decision.
The Kremlin noted that the meaning of this and other similar sayings "has not yet been disclosed." According to Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for the head of state, the reality in the relationship between the countries is at odds with Trump's statements.
