Moscow, November 23, Interfax - Metropolitan Tikhon of All America and Canada hopes that newly elected president Donald Trump will develop good relations with Russia.

“We hope he will preserve the stability within the United States and hopefully will promote good relations with other countries of the world, in particularly with Russia,” he said in his interview with Interfax-Religion in Moscow where the metropolitan came to celebrations of Patriarch Kirill’s 70th birthday.

According to the interviewee of the agency, “this year the campaign for the presidential elections was very difficult, perhaps, confusing to many people even in the United States, painful, but in the end the citizens of the United Stated followed the process as established and elected a new president.”

“My hope and I think the hope of the faithful and the bishops and priests of the Orthodox Church in America is that we are cautiously optimistic about the good work the new president will do,” he said.

According to the metropolitan, Orthodox believers hope that “our Lord Jesus Christ will enlighten the new president to do the right things.”
