A former White House official revealed the comment of former US President Donald Trump’s adviser about the translator who accompanied Russian President Vladimir Putin during the two presidents’ summit in Japan.
Stephanie Grisham, the former head of Trump’s press office, announced the details of the US-Russia summit in the Japanese city of Osaka in late 2019.
She added, “When the meeting began, Chancellor Fiona Hill leaned toward me and asked if I had noticed Putin’s interpreter, the attractive brunette with long dark hair, a beautiful face, and a feathered cod.”
“Then she told me that she suspected that Putin chose this woman specifically to distract our president,” she continued.
For his part, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, commenting on Grisham’s memoirs, confirmed that Putin has nothing to do with the selection of translators, explaining that their selection is within the prerogatives of the Foreign Ministry at the request of the Kremlin Affairs Department.
