Putin: ‘No-one believed Trump would win, except us’

Vladimir Putin said the US Democrats should accept and learn from their defeat in November’s elections, saying they should stop blaming external factors such as Russia.

Speaking in his year-end press conference, the Russian president drew applause by saying people around the world support his values, and swiping at Hillary Clinton’s performance:

Right up to the end, nobody believed [Trump] would win, except us.

The Democrats didn’t just lose the presidential election, but the House and the Senate as well. Did I do that as well?

He also implied that the US is not a military opponent, that while the US has stronger forces, the Russian army is “stronger than any potential aggressor.”
