Czech President to Cry-Baby Sore Loser Trump: Quit and Don’t Be ‘Embarrassing’
Early on, Czech President Milos Zeman supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 election, and he was one of few European politicians to do so, Reuters reports. But because he knows how things go in politics, Zeman is offering Trump sage advice — that he would do best to acknowledge he lost the election and get on with it.
While Zeman backed Trump in the first election, he didn’t do so this time around, and while he said Trump could continue to demand recounts and file more lawsuits, he said he believed Trump should take another route and not make such a spectacle of the situation.
“I personally believe that it would be much more reasonable to give up, not to be embarrassing and allow the new president to take office,” he said.
Trump has stubbornly refused to accept his loss against President-elect Joe Biden and continues to baselessly claim the election was rigged.
Zeman looms large in post-communist Czech politics, having won two presidential elections and served as a prime minister. Reuters notes that Czech presidents don’t have as many executive powers as their U.S. counterparts, but even so, the 76-year-old Zeman had enough influence to cement closer ties to Russia and China.
Pretty much everyone the world over knows about Trump’s “close ties” to Russia, and we all know he blames China for the pandemic since he continually calls it the “China virus.” Throughout much of his term, he has taken a hard-nosed approach to international trade with China and will likely lodge more sanctions against the country before he leaves office. He’s likely doing this to make the situation more difficult for President-elect Biden because that’s how Trump operates.
Perhaps Zeman, who also initially supported the President’s tough stance on immigration, has come to understand this. Unlike Trump, he’s never been an embarrassment on the world stage, but even so, he’s never received an invitation to the White House, even with his pro-Russian stance on issues of importance to the U.S., Reuters reports. This includes plans for a nuclear power plant to be built in the Czech Republic and the possible extradition of an alleged Russian hacking suspect to the U.S.
It would be nice if Trump would follow this man’s advice, but as we all know, he’s not going to do that.
