On Saturday's summary news edition on Russia 1, broadcast on September 11, senior TV host Dimitri Kisiliov said that "the American establishment is merciless" and that given Donald Trump's stance on Russia, he may be killed.
Following are excerpts
Dmitri Kisiliov: "From the US, we have two major headlines from Donald Trump this week. The first is that according to the polls, he is ahead of Clinton by 2%. The second is that Trump announced that when he becomes president, he intends to form - and I quote: 'very, very good relations with Russia.' This combination - Trump's leading in the race, his ability to state things as they are, and his intention to end the recent extreme Russian-American tensions... All this puts him in a very risky situation. Now they may just kill him. The US special [security] services do not need such a president. Those services promote hatred toward Russia in order to justify their existence. The American oligarchs also do not need such a president. For these oligarchs, the existing world order ensures solid and stable business. For them, a Trump who is ready to settle issues with Russia means that the finances will flow in a different direction. The American establishment is merciless."
