(nats Trump!) THIS is the welcome Vice President Joe Biden got from hundreds of ultra-nationalists in Belgrade. They're Serbian supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. They were marching to protest Biden's presence in Belgrade, although at the time, the Vice President was in another part of the capital barred to protesters during his visit. Vojislav Seselj of the Serbian Radical Party, says they're hoping for a Trump victory. (SOUNDBITE) (Serbian) LEADER OF SERBIAN RADICAL PARTY, VOJISLAV SESELJ, SAYING: "Because Trump is the alternative to globalization; because he will destroy old centers of power in the United States and he is a supporter of Russia; because he wants an agreement with Russia and because Trump is a friend of the Serbian nation; these are the reasons why (radicals are supporting) Trump." (arrival) Biden came to Belgrade to encourage Serbia to normalize relations with neighboring Kosovo. It fought a bitter war with Serbs in the late 1990's and declared its independence from Belgrade a decade later. (back to protest) But even now, many Serbs resent the U.S.-led NATO strikes against their country during that conflict. Trump's campaign has pricked the interest of some right-wing and nationalist leaders abroad...and the Serbian Radical Party is urging Serbian-Americans to vote for Trump in the November election.
