President Donald Trump on Saturday extolled a strong U.S. relationship with Russia as a “good thing,” and ripped critics of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin as “haters and fools.”

Trump had several brief conversations with Putin in Vietnam during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders' Meeting — and suggested he might believe Putin’s repeated denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Every time he sees me he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One, the Associated Press reported.

“I can’t stand there and argue with him, I would rather have him get out of Syria. You have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he has nothing to do with that. Now, you are not going to get into an argument, you are going to start talking about Syria and the Ukraine.”

Frequent Trump critic, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., rebuked that stance, saying “there’s nothing ‘America First’ about taking the word of a KGB colonel over that of the American intelligence community.”
