The Kremlin promised retaliation against America after President Barack Obama slammed them with new sanctions for allegedly trying to interfere with our presidential election. The sanctions included expelling 35 diplomats and their families and closing down two Russian compounds.

Putin then claimed he would do the exact same thing to America but then he backed off and decided to take the high road…

Looks like Putin is winning this one…game, set but we’ll see on the match. Something tells us PUTIN will come back strong against America once Obama is gone. He’s just trying to make Obama look bad on the world stage and doing a great job of it.
