Almost a month ago, Subramanian Swamy had said that any allegations against Donald Trump doesn’t stand, predicting a victory for him. The BJP leader had dismissed chances of a victory for Hillary Clinton calling her “the worst possible candidate.” “These allegations against him don’t stand. Bill Clinton was much worse. I expect Trump to win. He is still in the race,” the former Union Minister had told CNN-News18 in a conversation. Swami, on Tuesday, attributed Trump’s victory to a unified ‘working class white vote.’ “Sometimes, issues stir people up. Like the Hindutva issue in 2014, similar reasons are at play in the US today,” said the BJP leader, adding that Hillary Clinton was “compromised by Pakistan.” “Trump, on the other hand, is committed to fighting Islamic terror.” he said. Swamy also said that Trump as US President will not hurt Indo-US relations at all. “Trump had attended an Indian Hindu conference, his son attended a temple. But the US must treat India as an equal partner, not a junior partner,” he said.
Donald Trump won the Presidential election today in a stunning victory. He took the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning to occupy the White House. Soon after the results, the US President-elect addressed the nation. He called himself as a “president for all Americans” and asked everyone to come together in making the nation the best. PM Narendra Modi also congratulated Donald Trump after he was elected as the next President of America and expressed hope to work together in taking forward the bilateral ties between the two countries.
