The Russian State Duma welcomed the news of Republican candidate Donald Trump’s victory in the US Presidential elections with a round of applause from Moscow, Wednesday. Deputy Vyacheslav Nikonov announced Donald Trump as the president-elect which was greeted enthusiastically by the chamber.
Translation: Vyacheslav Nikonov, Deputy, United Russia Party (Russian): “Dear friends, respected colleagues! Three minutes ago Hillary Clinton admitted her defeat in US Presidential elections and a second ago Trump started his speech as an elected President of the United States of America and I congratulate you on this.”
It is good to see the Russians applaud this victory. The Russians know full well the treachery of Obama and Clinton and what a Clinton presidency would have wrought on the world.
I believe that this is a good signal of things to come. Russia will always be an advisary but there is no reason to not have cooperation when it serves our common interests like wiping out ISIS for instance.
