"[Trump]'s ignorance about Russian [President Vladimir] Putin are dangerous… This is just more of his loose talk, this kind of reckless pontificating that really doesn't have any substance to it. I think that if there are ways to do business with Russia, we should always be open. That was the reset accomplishment," Clinton told CNN television broadcaster in an interview on Sunday.
Clinton went on to accuse Russia of alleged interference in the US presidential campaign.
"When [Vladimir] Putin came back [as president in 2012], he came back I think with the view that his highest goal had to be to prevent what he considers to be his neighborhood in East Central Europe all the way to Central Asia from falling under the European Union and American influence and he has tried to disrupt and interfere with democratic elections as he has even in our country attempted to do with this round of elections," Clinton claimed.
