While U.S. President Doanald Trump drew fire for telling that "Getting along with Russia (and others) is a good thing," his Ambassador obviously doesn't think so.

"I called President Putin of Russia to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also). The fake news media is crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him. They are wrong!"
But U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said that the United States will never be friends with Russia.
"Russia's never gonna be our friend," the U.S. envoy to the UN said at a Q&A session at Duke University. According to her, Washington works with Moscow "when we need to, and we slap them when we need to."
"If they decide to be a good actor and deal in the international community like regular countries, they will see more countries want to work with them," she said.
"You haven't seen the end of what this administration will do to Russia. You will continue to see that play out," the Moscow Times cited her as saying. ■
