Donald Trump thanks Russia's Vladimir Putin for praising American economy

Putin thanks Su-30 jet pilots for ‘covering’ his plane during Syria visit

To most people, it's obvious that Putin's remarks were carefully crafted to play our egomaniac president like a fiddle.

President Donald Trump spoke by phone with President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation on Thursday, talking about how they can work together to resolve the situation involving North Korea's nuclear program, the White House said.

Shortly after Trump made his remarks to reporters at the White House on December 15, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on Russian Federation and China to do more to pressure North Korea, and charged that Moscow continues to employ North Korean workers in "slave-like conditions".

On Thursday, the White House issued a readout of the phone conversation between the two leaders, saying, "President Trump thanked President Putin for acknowledging America's strong economic performance in his annual press conference".

He said Mr Trump had made "some fairly serious achievements", pointing specifically to the sharp rise in U.S. stock markets.

Despite the threats, Mr Trump's Administration has announced they would like to seek a diplomatic solution to the apparent crisis, bringing North Korea to the negotiating table.

"This is how relations should be between people like us", Mr Putin said to reporters at the marathon annual event.

"There's been some major achievements in this short amount of time".

"With all due respect to those in opposition to President Trump in the United States, these are objective factors". "Look at the markets, how they've risen".

Mr Putin said accusations of links between Russian Federation and the Trump administration were " all invented by people who are in opposition to Trump in order to make his work look illegitimate". This speaks to investors' trust in the American economy. "Why does it all have to take on some tint of spymania?" he said.

He also welcomed the US' "awareness of reality" in the North Korea situation.

Washington and Moscow had many common interests, he said, citing the Middle East, North Korea, global terrorism, environmental problems and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

During their call, Mr Trump and Mr Putin also discussed ways to work together to address North Korea's nuclear and ballistic weapons program, the White House said.
