The New York Times story alleging that Russia paid Afghan militants to kill US troops is “probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax,” US President Donald Trump said on Twitter.

Trump took to Twitter to debunk the NYT report, which claimed that he failed to act against Russia after US intelligence told him that Moscow was secretly offering and paying money for attacks on coalition troops in Afghanistan.

“Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us,” he said. “Nobody’s been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration.” The president contrasted his record with his challenger in the upcoming presidential Joe Biden, saying he and Barack Obama allowed Russia to have a “field day” in Ukraine.
