What does Trump think about Belarus?

Michael Morgulis, Honorary Consul of Belarus in the State of Florida (USA), theologian and political scientist in the TV program Simple Questions with Yegor Khrustalev.

Michael Morgulis, Honorary Consul of Belarus in the State of Florida (USA), theologian, political scientist:
I met him in Sarasota. This is a city in Florida, which he visited during the election campaign. And I had 30-40 seconds - there was a lot of people - to tell him about Belarus. I believe that I am a Belarusian consul so this is my mission to promote Belarus. And he said to his wife: "This is not far from your country."

Slovenia, Slovakia... I do not remember where she comes from.

And I told him: "Do you know that every third or fourth citizen in Belarus died [during WWII]?"

He listened to me and said: "If this is so, then that country deserves respect."

And, he added some word in English, I don't quite remember... He added something like: "And help from the whole world."
