Trump says it´s an ´asset´ if Putin likes him

Trump says it´s an ´asset´ if Putin likes him

NEW YORK: US President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday it would be an "asset, not a liability" if he gets along with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but admitted it was not a given that the pair would be allies.

"If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia," Trump told a press conference -- his first since winning the November presidential election.

"I don´t know that I´m going to get along with Vladimir Putin. I hope I do. But there´s a good chance I won´t," he added, in the wake of explosive allegations about his dealings with Russia and purported intelligence gathered by Moscow about him.
