    Russian President Vladimir Putin said that US presidential hopeful Donald Trump is "the absolute leader of the presidential race".

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin welcomed Thursday US presidential hopeful Donald Trump's words of his readiness to improve relations with Russia.

    In September, Trump announced that if he were elected president he would deal with Putin with respect, and Moscow and Washington would not be experiencing the issues they were currently going through.

    "He is a very bright person, talented without any doubt. It is not our business to assess his worthiness, but he is the absolute leader of the presidential race. He says he wants to move to a different level of relations — a fuller, deeper [level] — with Russia, how can we not welcome this? Of course we welcome this," Putin told journalists after his annual press conference.

      Better relations for Russia, but at what cost to every other person on the planet? Not worth it, and a huge danger for everything good. Trump is possessed by the demon that is a woman pretending to be a man that causes insanity. Its female. This is why Trump has no facial hair, she cant grow it. Hey, where is Putin's facial hair? Not even a bit of stubble. Putin is showing some insanity herself by believing a politician in the first place.

      You do not have to be a visionary to realise that improving and strengthening the relationship between the two superpowers would create a world safer for everyone. The relationship like this would represent values for all mankind and therefore could be called special 
