What 8 World Leaders Really Meant When They Congratulated Trump
World Leaders are putting their two cents in on Trump becoming the new President of one of the most powerful countries in the world.
But there are clearly some things they’re leaving out. Here is what they said and what we think they wanted to say.
According to CNN, Putin’s reaction was to welcome Trump and better relations to the USA.
“As I have repeatedly said, that is not our fault that Russia-US relations are in that state,” he said. “Russia is ready and wants to restore the fully fledged relations with the US. I repeat we understand this will be difficult, but we are ready to play our part in it.”
Realistically, Putin is over the moon that Trump supports his harsh and fascist ways of controlling Russia. Two peas in a pod.
2. China’s Xi Jinping
“I place great importance on the China-U.S. relationship, and look forward to working with you to uphold the principles of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation,” Xi Jinping reportedly told Trump over a phone call.
Translation: good luck with trying to put a cap on China’s economic growth…. we ain’t slowing down for no one.
3. Mexico’s Enrique Pena Nieto
Enrique’s Twitter tells us he has responded cordially toward Trump’s win.
“Mexico and the United States are friends, partners and allies and we should keep collaborating for the competitiveness and development of North America,” he said.
Lets be honest, we all know he wants to tell Trump to jog on and that his wall can F OFF!
4. Afghanistan’s Ashraf Ghani
According to BBC news, Ashraf released a statement that “[The] Afghan government is hopeful that close co-operation [with] the new president-elect will further deepen ties between the two countries.”
Ashraf, come on, what you really want to say is stop being a racist bigot and threatening to ban our migration into the USA.
5. Canada’s Justin Trudeau
Canada says: “We look forward to working very closely with President-elect Trump, his administration, and with the United States Congress in the years ahead, including on issues such as trade, investment, and international peace and security,”
Justin’s thinking: HAHA everyone wants to move here now. Bye girl.
6. Germany’s Angela Merkel
Merkel gave a subtle warning to Trump:
“Germany and America are connected by values of democracy, freedom, and respect for the law and the dignity of man, independent of origin, skin colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or political views…I offer the next President of the United States close cooperation on the basis of these values”
Merkel’s statement was a polite version of saying: your values and views are disgusting, if you try putting them on us you have another thing coming.
7. France’s Francois Hollande
Francois has been brutally honest and said what everyone is thinking: “(Trump) opens a period of uncertainty.”
You go Francois. You have nothing to hide!
8. India’s Narendra Modi
Narendra thanked Trump, “We appreciate the friendship you have articulated towards India during your campaign.”
I, personally, believe Narendra wants to beg Trump to stop lobbing him in the same category as Mexico and continue to let Indian immigrants work in the USA.
