President Obama sanctioned Russia yesterday, claiming that they were responsible for hacking into the Democratic National Committee’s emails prior to Election Day on November 8, causing Hillary Clinton to lose the election. 35 Russian diplomats were expelled.
Today, Putin was encouraged to return the favor, but has decided not to retaliate and will not expel any Americans, citing that Obama is a lame duck president. Instead, he will wait for Trump to enter the Oval Office and begin foreign policy relations with him in January.
Trump tweeted the following:
Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!

Do you agree with Trump, as he calls Putin ‘very smart’ to ignore Obama? Let us know!
