Donald Trump Finland US politics


I guess Donald didn’t get the word about Finland’s state broadcaster doing a horrific interview (on purpose, they already knew his views) with the recent Obama appointed former US ambassador to Finland, Bruce Oreck, after he was elected. It was done purely out of spite and hatred of Trump, and with the taxpayers’ money.

Trump to President Niinistö: “Finns are great people”

President Sauli Niinistö’s first discussion with US President-elect Donald Trump went well, according to a short statement released on the Finnish President’s official website. Topics included bilateral relations, Russia and the Arctic, according to the Finnish statement.

Finnish president Sauli Niinistö spoke with US President-elect Donald Trump by phone on Thursday, according to a statement on the Finnish Presidential office website.

The statement says they held a discussion that touched on bilateral relations, Russia and the handover of the chairmanship of the Arctic Council, which is currently held by the United States and will switch to Finland next spring.

The presidents also discussed Finland’s centenary independence celebrations, which are due to take place next year. Trump asked Niinistö to convey greetings to the citizens of Finland, who he described as ‘great people’, according to the statement.

The Finnish statement did not specify who instigated the call or how it was arranged.

Niinistö then thanked Trump on Twitter, saying “Thank You @realDonaldTrump for a great discussion! Until next time!”.

At the time of writing Trump had not replied – the last Tweet posted on his account was an attack on a trade union leader in Indianapolis.
