Putin Says Trump Is 'Absolute Leader' In US Presidential Race

MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin ranged from conflict zones to U.S. politics Thursday in a news conference in which he tried to close gaps with Washington over Syria, noted that Moscow remained engaged in Ukraine and gave a nod to Donald Trump as the "absolute leader" in the White House race.

Putin -- over three hours of questions and some overtime remarks - also touched on Russia's battered economy and tense relations with Turkey over the downing of a Russian warplane.

Many of Putin's comments circled back to relations with the United States, including a bit of look-ahead musing on the White House race. Putin said Russia would work with "whomever the American voters choose," but he singled out Trump.

"He's a very lively man, talented without doubt," Putin said according to the Interfax news service after the news conference. He added that Trump is the "absolute leader in the presidential race."

"He's saying he wants to go to another level of relations -- closer, deeper relations with Russia," Putin continued. "How can we not welcome that? Of course we welcome that."
