"They have sanctions on Russia - let's see if we can make some good deals with Russia", Trump told The Times of London.
Trump has indicated that he would take a soft approach towards Russian Federation and would ease sanctions slapped on the country if "Moscow decides to work with the US". Both, Trump and the Kremlin had dismissed the dossier as fake.
Now, in a speech given in Moscow on 17 January, Putin brushed off allegations that his intelligence services were involved in collecting blackmail material on Trump.
Really, the whole Trump's campaign has been carried out under ceaseless critics of his Democratic adversaries, who made assertions not only about his affection for Russian Federation and its leader, but that the "new U.S. president was elected by the Kremlin".
Trump has not hidden his praise for Putin and insisted stronger Moscow-Washington ties can only benefit the United States.
"The fact that such methods are used against the U.S. president-elect is, of course, a unique case as this has never been [done] before". I'm not saying we should be there.
"It's not for me to prove any of this is false", the foreign minister said.
"I don't want to be relying on what Putin says, as to whether the dossier is valid or not", King said. He said that USA plans to develop non-nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles, anti-ballistic missile defenses and space-based weapons had hindered the discussion.
Trump's childhood home in New York City is going up for auction
In September, The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon asked the then-presidential nominee about the home being sold. It'll go up for auction today via Paramount Realty , though a starting bid for the home has not been released.
Russian Federation has been alleged of seeking to influence the 2016 Presidential election by hacking the DNC emails.
Russian Federation and the Obama administration have been at each others throats somewhat in recent weeks and Trump hopes to succeed where his predecessor did not, by brokering an amicable truce.
Late past year, Trump said that the U.S. must "greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until the world comes to its senses regarding nukes".
The Hampshire MP said: "It is no answer to assert that Europe will need to mount its own defence if Donald Trump's America turns its back on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".
"Reducing the number of nuclear weapons to a level where United States military power in other areas will render our main weapon ineffective is of course impossible".
He said USA intelligence agencies have failed to produce any evidence to back those claims, adding that officials who engaged in the effort "deserve to be fired, as they receive their salaries for nothing". "First, officials leak fakes to the media, then media start spinning them and, finally, officials comment on them as facts".
On NATO, Trump repeated his view that the military alliance was obsolete but said it was still very important for him.
