Clinton revealed just what type of relationship Obama wanted with Russia in a 2010 Interview
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON D.C.
One of the fears that I hear from Russia is that somehow the United States wants Russia to be weak. That could not be farther from the truth.
Our goal is to help strengthen Russia
" said then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a 2010 interview on Russian television with Vladimir Pozner
Clinton added that the Obama Administration wanted travel and business to increase between Russia and the United States and that the Obama Administration wanted to help strengthen Russia.
Many of our businesses want to have their business leaders come and have open-ended visas. And similarly a lot of Russians want to be able to come and have as much time as they need.
Thats what I would like to work towards said Clinton at the time.
