Putin: me and Trump have normal dialogue
Russian President Vladimir Putin has dismissed statements by certain people who say U.S. President Donald Trump did not want to listen to his interlocutors.
"This is not true. Maybe this is the way he behaves with some people, but then they are themselves to blame," the Russian president told a session of the Valdai International Discussion Club.
Putin said he and Trump enjoyed "normal and businesslike" relations. "He not only hears, he reacts to interlocutor’s argument. He may disagree with something the way I sometimes disagree with him," the Russian leader said. "We don’t see eye-to-eye on certain things, having different approaches, but this is a normal discussion of two partners," TASS cited Putin as saying.
