Putin says U.S. gripped by fabricated spymania, praises Trump – MSN

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday the United States was in the grip of a fabricated spymania whipped up by President Donald Trump’s opponents but he thought battered U.S.-Russia relations would recover one day.

Putin, who said he was on first name terms with Trump, also praised the U.S. president for what he said were his achievements.
