    Welcome ambassador Hovhanessian! and don’t worry you wont have to put up with the perfideus Piano key smile but for a year. I think that a future President Trump will be a much better business deal for Armenia. Businessmen understand Armenians because Armenians respect good business. Don’t think for a second that a Socialist like Allen Sanders will be good for Armenia, just because Armenia is Socialist. He would be good for the American people, but not for the rest of the Socialist world. Hes not an internationalist. Besides, he is so old, whatever experiment he may drag us through, will die with him. No one else has the charisma nor guts to put it out there like him.
