Belarus president describes Donald Trump as hardline pro-American citizen

MINSK, 17 November (BelTA) – All the hype surrounding the election of Donald Trump as the USA president has to stop. Donald Trump is exceptionally pro-American. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the relevant statement while talking to representatives of Russian regional mass media in Minsk on 17 November, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko said: “Everybody is whining now that a wrong person has been elected. But I say he is just the man! He will pursue a pro-American policy for sure. He is a hardline pro-American citizen, who will put America first. We should start thinking about our place in this policy. He is a new man. He has no commitments to you or me. He has promised nothing.”

In his words, America voted for Donald Trump in a bid to resolve a number of domestic problems. “If the middle class rejects everything and votes for such a man, the relevant conclusions have to be made. We shouldn't make the same kind of mistakes. We should channel efforts into resolving domestic problems — in Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. They are abundant. If our government agencies put their back into resolving them, we will be able to greatly bolster the domestic economies, which will surely reflect positively on the state of foreign policy. We should strengthen our foundation. Then it will be easier for us to talk to America and other countries,” the President was convinced.
