United States President Donald Trump says Russia may be wishing to see Joe Biden defeat him.
Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, will go head-to-head at the November 3rd presidential election.
“Russia probably want Biden, because nobody has been tougher to Russia than me”, Trump told FOX TV.
“Nobody – with the [Nord Stream 2] pipeline, with the big military, we have become the number one energy country in the world.”
Trump recalled the lethal weapons his administration delivered to Ukraine.
“And, remember, Obama gave them pillows and I gave them tank-busters. It’s a big difference with Ukraine,” the American leader said.
On August 7, the U.S. National Counter-Intelligence and Security Centre accused China, Russia and Iran of alleged interference in the 2020 poll.
The centre said Russia was working in favour of Trump, while China was accused of supporting Biden.
