After a report emerged that Russia has some compromising information on Donald Trump, the Russian government today blasted it and called it a complete hoax.
Two US officials had reportedly told the NBC News that the materials had damaging allegations about Trump’s dealings with the Russians.
Donald Trump called the news fake and a total political witch hunt.
FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!

He also took to Twitter and told his followers what Russia had said underlining that his win has not gone down well with some people. He also wondered if he were living in the Nazi Germany as he has become a hunted party and a fair game for all kinds of allegations.
Donald Trump, obviously angry poured his heart out and said:
Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is “A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE.” Very unfair! Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!I win an election easily, a great “movement” is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state! Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?
Russia and Donald Trump‘s closeness right from the beginning of his campaign had drawn concerned glances because some felt that he was getting influenced by the strong-arm tactics of Vladimir Putin. Putin is known to be harsh towards the pro-democracy group and has shown appreciation for the US President-elect who he believes has the potential to change the course of the US-Russia ties. Israel, India, and Russia have shown great interest in working with Donald Trump while China has been fuming with his open hostility towards its designs on Taiwan and the South China Sea.
