Trump's election boosts Kremlin hopes for better relationsIn careful phrasing befitting the spy he once was, Vladimir Putin has made it clear he expects a great deal from President-elect Donald Trump. Trump has repeatedly called for better relations with Russia, frequently musing about a rosy world in which Russia and the U.S. get along. Wednesday, Putin did the same, hoping that the "degraded" relations between the two powers would improve once Trump takes over. The U.S. government believes Putin might have interfered in the election that resulted in Trump's victory. Russia, it appears, wants Trump to play the overture, and only then decide whether to applaud.Trump made no specific mention of Russia in his first post-election comments but made clear that he wants good relations with all nations.
