Nobody was tougher on Russia, China than me - Trump

The United States President Donald Trump denied being notified about Russia allegedly hiring Taliban militants to attack the US soldiers, claiming that the story was fabricated and stressing that his response would have been "very strong" if the US intelligence had found the claims credible.

"There's been nobody tougher on Russia or on China than I have, not even by a long shot. When you look at what we've done compared to the last administrations, it's not even a contest," Trump asserted and followed it up by saying "If it is brought to my attention, I'll do something about it."

The allegations arose after a report published by The New York Times. Both the US and Russia have since denied the claims.
