After US has expelled 35 suspected Russian spies, US President-elect Donald Trump on Friday praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for refraining from retaliation.
Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!

Vladimir Putin earlier on Friday said he would not hit back for the US expulsion, at least until Trump takes office on January 20.
“Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
In case anyone thought that tweet was off the cuff, Trump’s already got an Instagram post quoting the tweet pic.twitter.com/THxJqPPiQW
Just to make sure nobody missed it, Trump also posted the tweet as a graphic on Instagram and pinned it.
