Veronika Krasheninnikova: "The Trump Administration is an Obama Administration on steroids"
According to the member of the RF Civic Chamber Veronika Krasheninnikova, Russia should have few optimistic hopes regarding Trump’s presidency in the US
"Russia should have few optimistic hopes regarding Trump’s presidency in the US", - said Veronika Krasheninnikova, member of the RF Civic Chamber, General Director of the Institute of Foreign Policy Studies and Initiatives on February 2 during the "Tverskaya – XXI” discussion platform.
"All those who have voted for Trump, are not fascists and racists, but every American fascist and racist had voted for Trump. He has managed to collect around this core people sliding into poverty, those who fear for their well-being, those who are afraid of losing jobs. When workers and the middle class get poorer, they become prey of populist leaders who promise simple solutions for complex problems", - she explained.
The member of the RF Civic Chamber also focused attention on the presence of the Obama Administration stuff in in Trump's team, besides the most aggressive ones: «Trump’s administration is an Obama Administration on steroids. They will continue the same policy, but using more aggressive and tough means. Iran will be dealt with in several months. The military conflict can emerge at anytime and anywhere. Most likely, it would happen at the sea, there have already been several clashes of Iranian ships with the American ones, which provoke it. There is a war game today involving the US, Australia, France and the UK navies, and the legend of the war game is confrontation with Iran. I wish such war games would not switch to a real military conflict".
Veronika Krasheninnikova emphasizes that Russia would be faced with a hard question in this case: “Iran is our partner. We are in a coalition and actually fight against terrorism in Syria. We realize that the attack against Libya in 2011 was the preparation for the attack against Syria, while Syria is the preparation for the attack against Iran. The US could not put their hands on countries such strong countries as Iran at once, they need to act progressively, and they start with the weakest to proceed to more powerful countries”
