McFaul is worried that Trump adviser will be appointed as US Ambassador to Russia
There are fears in the US that one of Donald Trump’s advisors may become an official representative of the country. Trump is currently running for president as the official candidate of the Republican Party.
“I would be worried if one of Trump’s advisers became our next ambassador to Russia,” the former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, said to Politico newspaper.
The diplomat went on to say that there is concern about “many statements made in relation to Russia”.
The Republican majority in the US Congress will block any attempts to start an investigation into possible ties between Trump and Russia.
Trump’s competitor in the election, which will be held on the 8th of November, is Democratic Party candidate, Hillary Clinton.
