‘Things Will Work Out Fine’: Trump Dismisses Growing Tensions Between America, Russia

Despite signs of escalating tensions between Russia and the United States, President Donald Trump said in a new tweet today he can still make peace happen between the two nations.

In recent days, Vladimir Putin has expressed anger towards America over the decision to launch an airstrike into Syria as punishment for Bashar al-Assad‘s use of chemical weapons. A statement from the Russian president made the rounds on international media over the last two days, where he said that relations with the U.S. have deteriorated under Trump.

Tensions culminated yesterday when Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov faced down Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during a press conference in Moscow.

Trump also promised once again that he would take action on North Korea, with or without China’s political assistance.
