Lukashenka: USA was created by freedom-loving bandits
11:28, — Politics
The US was created by bandits who thought only about their purses.
He made this statement at a meeting with students of Arkadz Kuliashou Mahilou State University, Rosbalt news agency reports.
“This country, America, is perhaps slightly more than 300 years old. You know what a nation it is. You know how it was formed,” Lukashenka said. By America the graduate of Mahilou Pedagogical Institute (now university) probably means the USA rather than the continent.
Lukashenka said the western countries often criticised him and he sometimes regretted his critical remarks addressing his critics. He recalled, in particular, his recent remarks about US president Barack Obama, whom he called a descendant of former black slaves obsessed with the idea of exceptionalism of the American nation and imposing his will on the rest of the world. “You know who crossed the ocean. They were bandits, but they loved freedom. They didn't want to know anything except for their purses. They only wanted to go to a bank (or where they go in such cases) and take money to build a house and something around the house,” Lukashenka said about the European settlers who founded the USA.
He added that about 50 million people in the US “are dying in a ditch” without medical aid. This terrible social injustice is impossible in post-Soviet Belarus, the head of state is sure. He reminds that the US authorities don't care about social problems, including the healthcare reform proposed by Obama. Speaking about the reform that provoked disputes in the US Congress Lukashenka said: “Obama raised this question about medical aid to over 50 million of Americans dying in a ditch, because no one will come to you if you are ill. He said the right thing about health insurances. Did it pass? No, it didn't.”
We remind that Aliaksandr Lukashenka mentioned “slave roots” of the American president commenting on the US policy towards Syria in early October: “Obama surprises me. Not so long ago black people were slaves in America, and now they talk about some kind of exceptionalism. I never thought that a person, who originated from these poor groups, would be able to use such rhetoric in the world. This is inadmissible and extremely dangerous.”
