BELGRADE – Serbian Radical Party (SRS) leader Vojislav Seselj says Russian President Vladimir Putin would “very much get along” with Donald Trump should the Republican front-runner win the U.S. presidential election, RFE/RL reports.
Seselj said a Trump victory in the November poll “would completely change American politics.”
Speaking to RFE/RL’s Russian Service from Serbia, Seselj said Trump and Putin would work to the “benefit of world peace.”
“Together they would be able to solve all the world’s crises, unlike the current U.S. administration, which constantly creates new crises,” Seselj said during the Skype interview.
Seselj, who was deputy prime minister of Serbia from 1998-2000, also claimed that Trump had publicly opposed NATO’s 1999 air campaign against the former Yugoslavia.
“I’m sure that something would change, considering that Trump himself said that the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s was a big mistake and he attacked the Clinton administration for its actions,” Seselj said from Belgrade.
