On Wednesday, a day after Obama delivered a speech blasting Trump for viewing Putin as a "role model," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov issued a statement calling the remarks "electoral-style rhetoric" that wouldn't bode well for the U.S. and Russia's future relations. "Sadly, we see the continuation of this blatant Russophobia. All we can do is express our regrets in this regard,"
In particular, Obama hit Trump for praising Putin's "82 percent" approval rating, which Obama contended is "what happens" when "you control the media and you've taken away everybody's civil liberties, and you jail dissidents."
