Last Friday [12/16/2016], President Obama told the media that “Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave” if he knew about the poll which shows 37% of Republicans approve of Russia President Putin.

Just yesterday, Russia President Putin responded to President Obama’s statement. Putin said that the 40th US President Ronald Reagan would be happy to see the Republican Party win the election.

“I don’t know who’d be rolling in his grave. I think Reagan would be happy that his party is winning everywhere. And he would be happy for a President-elect who has so sharply perceived the mood of society and followed that road to the end, even though no one believed that he’d win, except for you and me.”
