Although Russian President Vladimir Putin said he doesn’t think GOP President-elect Donald Trump frolicked around with prostitutes while in Russia, Putin did note that Russian prostitutes are the best in the world.
The remarks came in the context of a discussion on the dossier BuzzFeed published recently, which contains numerous unverified statements and allegations that Trump was filmed engaging in scandalous activities while in Russia.
According to Putin, Trump is “a grown man, and secondly he’s someone who has been involved with beauty contests for many years and has met the most beautiful women in the world. I find it hard to believe that he rushed to some hotel to meet girls of loose morals, although ours are undoubtedly the best in the world.”
Putin told a gathering of reporters at the Kremlin on Tuesday that the allegations are “obvious fabrications,” and said that Russian intelligence had no real reason to track Trump, Bloomberg reports.
“When Trump came to Moscow, he was not a political figure, we were not even aware of his political ambitions,” Putin said.
He then went on to deride the unknown anti-Trump Republicans and later Democrats who commissioned the 35-page report as worse than prostitutes.
“People who order fakes of the type now circulating against the U.S. president-elect, who concoct them and use them in a political battle, are worse than prostitutes because they don’t have any moral boundaries at all,” Putin said.
In response to BuzzFeed publishing the dossier, Trump called the news organization a “failing pile of garbage” while holding a press conference on Jan. 11.
Trump was last in Russia in 2013 for the Miss Universe pageant. He tried unsuccessfully to meet Putin.
