Putin calls Trump smart and says what he expects from him

Newly elected President of the USA Donald Trump is reportedly "a smart person" and should "quickly realize a level of responsibility" after being elected to the position. Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed these sentiments on NTV.ru during an interview.

According to him, Trump was a businessman and an entrepreneur by nature and yet he has already accomplished being a statesman.

"Today, he is the head of the United States of America, one of the leading countries of the world, a leading economy, a leading military power. As he managed to succeed in business, it shows that he is a smart person. And if he is a smart person, then he quite clearly realizes a different level of responsibility.” Putin noted.

The Russian President added that Russia is of the opinion that he will act from these very positions.
