US President Donald Trump says Russia might be wishing to see Joe Biden rout him.
Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, go head-to-head at the November 3 presidential political race.
“Russia – probably, they want Biden, because – look – nobody has been tougher to Russia than me”, Trump told FOX TV.
“Nobody – with the [Nord Stream 2] pipeline, with the big military, we have become the number one energy country in the world.”
Trump recalled the lethal weapons his administration delivered to Ukraine.
“And, remember, Obama gave them pillows and I gave them tank-busters. It’s a big difference with Ukraine,” the American leader said.
On August 7, the U.S. National Counter-Intelligence and Security Centre blamed China, Russia and Iran of alleged interference in the 2020 poll.
The centre said Russia was working for Trump, while China was blamed for supporting Biden.
Scarcely one month later, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) blamed Russia for endeavoring to ruin mail-in casting a ballot.
DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis said the arrangement was to prevent Americans from casting a ballot.
