Kremlin scoffs at suspicions about Trump and Russia, so …

“That’s stupid,” President Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy aide, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters in Moscow on Wednesday.

Various spokespeople for the Kremlin have categorically rejected the suspicion that U.S. President Donald Trump is an agent of the Russian government. As reported by Bloomberg:

“That’s stupid,” President Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy aide, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters in Moscow on Wednesday. “How can the president of the United States be an agent of another country? Just think about that.”

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also dismissed “accusations that President Trump is effectively a Russian agent” at his annual press conference Wednesday in Moscow, as he attacked Congress and the American media for undermining the U.S. leader.

So just relax everyone.
