“We cannot tell anything about what he’s going to do, but if he is going to fight the terrorists, of course we are going to be allies, natural ally in that regard with the Russian, with the Iranian, with many other countries,” Assad said.
Assad was referring to Trump’s interview with the Jewish Wall Street Journal, saying: US should fight ISIS not Assad.
However, Assad doubted Trump will be able to follow his vow. “I say, this is promising, but is he able to achieve this? Is he able to go in that direction?,” Assad said.
Judging by Trump’s anti-Muslim Friends of Israel like Steve Bannon, John Bolton, Rudy Giuliani, Steven Mnuchin, Sen. Tom Cotton, Sarah Palin, etc. – it’s hard to expect anything good coming out of Trump administration for Syrians or the rest of Arabs, and Muslims.
President Assad’s opinion of Donald Trump is different from his Iranian counterpart (Dr. Rouhani), who called the US president-elect an evil and bad person before his victory.
Assad, however, did accuse the US of meddling in other countries’ affairs. “They think that they are the police of the world. They think they are the judge of the world. They’re not,” he said.
Assad also criticized his former ally, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, referring to him as a sick person. “Erdogan is a megalomaniac. He’s out of touch with the reality,” Assad said.
For the last five years, Assad and Syrians have been victim of an Israeli Project conceived in the 1990s. In the email, released by Wikileaks, Hillary Clinton while Secretary of State said that the best way to help Israel is to use force in Syria to overthrow the (pro-Iran) Assad government. The email makes it clear that it has been US policy from the very beginning to violently overthrow the Syrian government – and specifically to do this because it is in Israel’s interests.
