The Kremlin on Sunday posted a readout of a thank you call from President Vladimir Putin of Russia to President Donald Trump.

According to the readout, Putin thanked Trump for information — “transmitted through the channels of U.S. special services” — that “helped thwart terrorist acts in Russia.”

The readout noted that the two presidents also discussed issues of mutual interest, agreeing to “continue bilateral cooperation in combating terrorism.” The Russian government news agency TASS, citing a spokesman from the FSB intelligence agency, reported that two Russian nationals were plotting terrorist attacks in St. Petersburg over the New Year holiday but were detained thanks to the information shared by the U.S.

The White House has not released a statement on the call, and reporters traveling with Trump in Florida asked for more information on Sunday.

Just to be clear this is the guy who engaged in a cyber terrorist attack on our democracy thanking the guy that the attack helped to put into office for helping him fight terrorism in his country.

I am now officially physically ill.
