According to a Newsweek article, referencing an interview which Trump did with Serbian Magazine Nedeljnik, Trump has apologized to the Serbs for Nato bombings:




The bombing of Serbs, who had been our allies in both world wars, was a big mistake. Serbs are very good people. Unfortunately, the Clinton administration brought a lot of harm to them, to all the Balkans, where they created chaos.


Newsweek, finding an unbiased observer in London professor Eric Gordy, quoted him:



“The most obvious interpretation of his statement is that it is another sign of alignment with Russia,” he says. “To be honest, this kind of statement is usually more a symbolic attempt for Russian politicians to drum up resentment towards the U.S.,” Gordy said.


According to Buzzfeed, the Clinton campaign commented as one might expect:



The campaign for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton issued a statement prior to the Trump campaign’s denial calling the interview “no surprise” and another way that the candidate continued to “pander to Putin.”


Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald, who has previously tried to connect Trump to Russia(source) in a now discredited article (source), tweeted this when reposting the article:



Trump either does not understand US foreign policy, spouts off without thinking, or is adopting Russia's positions.


Of course it turns out that the magazine was hoaxed, and has since retracted the story, but not before it was retweeted thousands of times and shared by conspiracy theorists alike.


In this case, the fault is ours and ours alone. We believed the party who provided us with evidence that we were looking for, and we did not fulfill their professional duties by the end of doubting them.

Not out of malice and not in order to bring his readers astray, causing them to advance in any case, whatever the outcome of this mess, we apologize.


Nedeljnik

Yes I can confirm that the interview was hoaxed, or at least that part. This alleged interview was done trough another person, who acted as a medium between this newspaper and Trump, and the newspaper declined any responsibility for this incident

But none the less, Donald Trump is still greatly admired here in Serbia.

Not surprising. Nationalism, resentment of foreigners, intolerance towards Islam, violently expressed grievance over a lost, mythologized ‘greatness’ which must be restored at any cost... a litany quite familiar from those of us who remember the wars of the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

Why don’t you take him?

Nationalism is taking Pride in your Country . Resentment of Foreigners who want to try and Destroy America's Personal Freedoms that do not Exist in Any other Nation on Earth . Intolerance towards Islamic Terrorism Is Justified for a Nations Security . The Constitution and the Bill Of Rights are the Greatest Gift to Mankind in the Last 6 Thousand Years . Hitler , Communism , The Empire of Japan , were Defeated for the Benefit of Freedom Loving Western Europe , the Americas , and Pacific Nations . In America , the PEOPLE Rule , Not their Elected Leaders , they are the Servants and Representatives who , if not Loyal to their Oath of Office , can be Replaced at any Given Time . What other Country can say the Same , NONE .

That's true. But it doesn't mean that what the leaders of that country do is right.

Nationalism does not mean what your leaders do is right. Do you get that?

That is True , but in a Free Nationalist Society , the Will of the People outweighs the Authority of it's Leadership .

And?

Is the US supposed to be a " Free Nationalist Society?" Whatever that is supposed to mean?

'My country, right or wrong.'

But nationalism is more about nations, usually, than nation-states. Nationalism is the geographical projection of racism.

No. I'm afraid you're out of your league here without an education.
