MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin called his former US counterpart Donald Trump a "colourful individual" during an exclusive NBC News interview which will air on Monday "Well even now, I believe that former US President Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual, otherwise he would not have become US President," TASS News Agency quoted Putin as saying in the interview.
"He is a colourful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn't come from the US establishment, he had not been part of big time politics before, and some like it some don't like it but that is a fact," Putin noted. (IANS)
