Trump says no president has been as tough on Russia

"We're doing very well, probably as well as anybody has ever done with Russia," Trump said at a cabinet meeting at the White House. "Look at what we've done. Look at sanctions," he said.

"And I think President Putin knows that better than anybody. Certainly a lot better than the media. "He understands it, and he's not happy about it," Trump said.

"And he shouldn't be happy about it because there's never been a president as tough on Russia as I have been."
