The Russian State Duma erupted in loud applause when representatives met this morning. They applauded that Donald Trump has become the next president of the United States.
The official Russian endorsement could hardly be clearer. It shows how strongly Russia abhors the American political elites, who have brought sanctions, demands, criticism and other trouble to the motherland.
The picture of this elite was Hillary Clinton, not least because Putin accused Clinton of having mobilized Russians to demonstrate against Putin in large demonstrations in the winter of 2011 and 2012 due to election fraud in Russian parliamentary elections.
Now USA has another face, it is believed in the Duma, who offered an ovation for one who was not even present in the building.
President Vladimir Putin was the first foreign head of state who congratulated Trump today. He said that he wants to restore good relations with the United States.
Throughout the campaign, Putin has failed to say who he supported, but vice chairman of Putin's party, Sergei Zheleznyjak, said today what the official Russia thinks.
- The people are tired of artificial confrontations and globalization through coercion. We respect the American people's choice and look forward to building a constructive relationship with the new American leadership in equal dialogue and cooperation, he said.
Donald Trump has on several occasions promised to rid the world of ISIS, which is also Russia's objective, and it should also be the objective of other nations, now that Saudi-sponsored Hillary Clinton is out of the picture, and Barack Hussein Obama's reign is about to come to an end.
