Trump or Hillary: The outcome of United States election could be a lose-lose situation for the Dominican Republic
In his Diario Libre editorial today, Friday 3 June 2016, Adriano Miguel Tejada writes that the outcome of United States election could be a lose-lose situation for the Dominican Republic. He says both candidates will probably bring about deterioration in relations between the two countries.
On the positive side he says that Hillary Clinton has been a frequent visitor to the country. On the negative side, however, he mentions criticism of her husband’s and other relatives’ links to Haiti, as well as her dependence on the Black Caucus, NGOs related to human rights issues and the unions in the US, which have misgivings about the Dominican Republic.
On the positive side, he says that Donald Trump knows the country because he has done business here, but points out the concerns about the way Trump might handle his foreign policy, and his negative comments about Latinos.
