Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, slammed President Donald Trump saying Russia helped his candidacy because he "adopted most of President (Vladimir) Putin's foreign policy," The Hill reported.

Podesta claimed Russia initially wanted a "weakened" Clinton in the White House, but decided to back Trump when his position aligned with Putin's, according to the website.

"As the U.S. government said, what started as a program to undermine the faith in democratic institutions, the faith in the electoral process, became and morphed into a program to damage and weaken Secretary Clinton," Podesta claimed.

"They eventually turned when they eventually saw the opportunity — I'm citing U.S. intelligence community — their sources indicate (the Russians) were actively trying to help Donald Trump."

In an interview with Politico, Podesta had called Trump "unfit for office" and said no one on the White House staff stands up to him.

"If they're going to try to right this place and be able to be effective, I think they need a much stronger team who can resist his impulses and tell him that he's wrong."
