The joke was on Vice President Joe Biden as he visited the country of Serbia. Perhaps he expected a welcoming committee as he stepped of his plane, but what he got was a massive rally for Donald Trump.
Nothing says “Welcome to Serbia” like a group of citizens wearing t-shirts with Donald Trump giving a thumbs up on them:

Serbians are a historically prideful people, and apparently they can see through the bias American media and have come to the conclusion that Donald Trump is fighting for his country, the same way that they are fighting for their own.
In the video, one of the demonstrators can be heard saying, “Trump is honest, honorable. He is bringing peace to mankind and he is getting back America pride!” Supporters break out into a chant, “Donald Trump! Donald Trump!”
What’s ironic, is there are actually more rally goers in attendance for Donald Trump in Serbia, than there are attendees to a Hillary Clinton rally in America.
Hillary Clinton could only hope for this type of enthusiasm and pride portrayed by a crowd of her “fans,” although I don’t think she could pay enough of them for this type of outpouring.
Reuters describes these rally goers and Trump fans as “ultra nationalists,” but they are more accurately describes as patriots who love their country and do not want to see it torn to pieces by massive illegal migration. The liberal media is trying to spin this story as “radical Serbs” supporting nationalist Donald Trump, but I didn’t know that citizens who have pride in their country are now considered radicals? Apparently unless you support the complete disintegration of your own culture for the sake of “diversity” you are now known as an ultra right wing nationalist.
Hundreds of Serbian ultra-nationalists protested on Tuesday against U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Belgrade by chanting their support for Donald Trump.
“Vote for Trump! Vote for Trump!” the protesters, wearing T-shirts displaying an image of the U.S. Republican candidate, shouted as they gathered near the Serbian presidency building.
Biden was on a one-day visit to Belgrade before traveling to Kosovo to encourage both countries to do more to normalize their relations.
The United States is highly popular among Kosovars, who regard Washington as their savior for the 1999 air strikes that halted killings of ethnic Albanians by Serbian forces waging a counter-insurgency war.
But resentment remains high in Belgrade over NATO’s air strikes, whose vestiges can be seen in battered ex-Defense Ministry buildings in the center of the Serbian capital.
Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008 but Serbia does not recognize its former southern province as sovereign.
“Trump is the alternative to globalization. He will destroy old centers of power in the United States and he is a supporter of Russia,” Vojislav Seselj, head of Serbia’s ultra-nationalist Radical Party, said when asked why he was backing Trump.
Biden, who was meeting government officials in another part of town, offered condolences for the Serbs who lost their lives in the air strikes, the first high-ranking U.S. official to do so.
“I’d like to express my condolences to the families of those whose lives were lost in the wars of the 1990s, including those killed as a consequence of the NATO air strikes,” Biden told reporters before taking a walk with Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic in a picturesque borough of Belgrade, under high security.
Biden, a Democrat, said on Monday Trump’s remark that President Barack Obama had founded Islamic State had increased threats to the safety of U.S. troops in Iraq.
Trump’s volatile campaign, which has included calls for a border wall with Mexico to keep out immigrants and a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, has pricked the interest of some right-wing and nationalist leaders abroad.
Seselj, who was acquitted in March of war crimes by the U.N. tribunal in The Hague, urged Serbian-Americans to vote for Trump in the November U.S. presidential election.
Victims of atrocities in Bosnia’s 1992-95 war reacted with dismay in March to the acquittal of Seselj, who was accused of stoking murderous ethnic hatred with fiery rhetoric in the conflicts that accompanied federal Yugoslavia’s break-up into seven successor states and killed 130,000 people.
Seselj’s Radicals are the third largest party in the Serbian parliament.
