Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has said that if elected as the US president in the November general elections, he might meet Russian President Vladimir Putin even before he takes the oath of presidency in January next year.

“…I could see myself meeting with Putin and meeting with Russia prior to the start of the administration,” Trump told the WND Radio station in an interview yesterday.

A president-elect meeting a foreign leader before the inauguration is seen quite unusual.

After being elected as the US President in November 2008, Barack Obama had stayed away from the foreign policy domain, arguing that there is only one president at a time.

“You have potentially a really catastrophic situation here. I’ll be honest with you. If I win on November 8, I could see myself meeting with Putin and meeting with Russia prior to the start of the administration,” Trump said.

“The problem is Putin has no respect for Obama at all,” the republican presidential, a frequent guest on the radio station, said.

    What I do know is that Putin is authentic, the type who wins wars, a courageous leader who has shown up the West as a paper tiger. This is the man the clowns in Brussels tried to bluff with Circe-like songs to Ukraine, so he took back Crimea as a bonus. His standing by ad has shown up Uncle Sam yet again as an unreliable ally when the going gets tough.
