Bratislava, November 9 (TASR) – Elections are to be respected, rather than commented on, so there’s a need to recognise that the USA has elected a new president, said Parliamentary Chair Andrej Danko (Slovak National Party/SNS) on Wednesday in response to the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States of America.

“We’ll monitor the first actions of president Trump. Some meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin have already been announced. It’s important for the EU not to stay on the sidelines of this game. If there’s detente in US-Russian relations, the EU can’t be left behind,” said Danko.

The Slovak parliamentary chair congratulated the Americans on their choice and paid respect to all the losers. “It was a close fight. The result signals that people have lost patience with standard politics and want to see change. But everyone needs to discover whether the change will be extreme or a change of generations in politics,” said Danko.
