According to her, either of the two major candidates Donald Trump of the Republican and Hillary Clinton of the Democrat is open to continue the strong bilateral ties between the two countries.

However,   US President, Barack Obama says Donald Trump's continued flattery of Russia's President and claims of election rigging are unprecedented.
 
At a white house press conference, with visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi,  Mr Obama said he has never seen any US presidential candidate try to discredit a poll before it has even taken place.
