Vice-speaker of the state Duma Pyotr Tolstoy believes that it is strange to hope that the U.S. foreign policy, which developed over decades, could change with the arrival of Donald trump.
The inauguration of the 45th President of the United States Donald trump will be held on January 20.
“As for the illusions and expectations, they could not change because they were not. The U.S. foreign policy was based for decades and has not changed under a President. Why would it be strange to hope that trump will be able to change something,” said Tolstoy RIA Novosti.
He noted that it is hardly possible to raise the question of how good or bad trump for Russia.
“It is not our President, so we discussed it, and he will defend US interests, not ours. About how it was good or not, let them think US citizens, and we should stop waking up thinking, “how’s America?”, — added the Vice-speaker of the state Duma.
“I only hope that the new occupant of the White house will have more time to devote to the internal Affairs of his country. And this is good news for us and for the world. Maybe then will decrease the number of wars and color revolutions,” he concluded.
