Joe Biden's Visit to Serbia Is Protested by Hundreds of People Shouting 'Vote for Trump!'


Joe Biden touched down in Serbia on Tuesday as part of a White House effort to help them to improve relations with Kosovo.

Upon his arrival, Biden was welcomed by a delegation headed by Serbian Prime Minister, Alexsandar Vucic.

As he continued to make his way from the plane, however, one group of Serbians wasn't rolling out the welcome mat.

In fact, members of the Ultra-Nationalist Radical Party were there to confront Biden with a pro-Trump message:

They were handing out Trump t-shirts, too:

Members of the party were pretty much everywhere:

And younger people were involved in the protest, as well:

The organizer of the event, Vojislav Seselj, told Reuters why his party wanted to make such a statement:

“Trump is the alternative to globalization. He will destroy old centers of power in the United States and he is a supporter of Russia.”

Earlier this year, Seselj was acquitted of war crimes by the International Criminal Court at the Hague. His comments in politics share a similar theme to Trump's.

For example, Seselj has said that if Muslims don't want to adopt “Serbian values,” they are welcome to:

“Pack their bags and leave.”

During the protest against Biden, Seselj said of the Republican presidential hopeful:

“Trump is honest, honorable. He is bringing back peace to mankind and he is getting back American pride.”
