Kremlin “Not Surprised” at Trump’s Silence on Russia in First Speech to Congress



On Wednesday, Kremlin spokesman D S Peskov told reporters that the Kremlin isn’t surprised that US President Donald Trump’s first speech to a joint session of the US Congress made no mention of Russia:

No, we aren’t surprised. He’s the President of the USA. Naturally, he’s engaged in US affairs, just as President Putin engages in Russian affairs. It’s absolutely normal.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump delivered his first address before Congress, speaking on the issues of economic policy, health care, infrastructure, and military spending as well as the fight against terrorism.
