Putin says US politicians are essentially elected puppets

PUTIN 2017:

U.S. politicians are essentially elected puppets. Who are these “dark suits” he describes?

“When a person is elected, he may have some ideas. Then people come with briefcases, well dressed, in dark suits, just like mine, except for the red tie, as they wear black or dark blue ones. These people start explaining how things are done. And immediately everything changes. That happens with every administration.”
