Politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who's been described as Russia's own Donald Trump, says January 20th "will be an historic day for the US and Europe" and herald "the dawn of a new era."

"January 20th will be an historic day for the US and Europe," Zhirinovsky said during a recent interview on Russian state TV. "The dawn of a new era. Something completely new, like with our 1917 revolution when we ended our monarchy."

"Now it's America's turn."

Zhirinovsky made headlines in October for saying Hillary Clinton's election could trigger a nuclear war.

0:00 January 20th will be an historic day for the US and Europe
0:07 The dawn of a new era
0:10 Something completely new
0:12 Like with our 1917 revolution
0:13 When we ended our Monarchy
0:15 Now it's America's turn
0:16 You know, they invented the internet...
0:17 Today there is a completely new generation
0:19 They can see what is really going on...
0:21 They don't believe the establishment media..
0:26 Are you going to tweet to him: Donald..., WELL DONE! - ?
0:30 How would one address him affectionately? 'Donny'?
0:33 I don't think he would like being called Donny
0:36 Ok, well, what would his mother call him?
0:38 I'm pretty sure she didn't call him 'Donny'
0:41 It's really revolutionary, what has happened...
0:43 Usually we Russians didn't really care who wins US elections
0:48 One team, another team, it was all the same
0:51 It didn't make much difference to us
0:53 But this time the world was on the edge of their seat
0:56 Because Trump is a new kind of politician
0:58 A completely different level
1:04 He's against all these far-flung US invasions
1:07 He could give a damn about the Middle East
1:09 Americans can't even find the Ukraine on a map
1:11 And they don't really care about North Korea either
1:14 He wants for America the same thing that we started here in Russia, in 1991
1:19 When Russia decided to focus on itself - enough with helping the whole world!
1:25 We're kind of similar in a way...
1:28 Really?
1:30 I mean the basic idea is the same.... a new direction...
1:34 You're comparing him with Yeltsin!?
1:37 No, ... with myself! I proposed the same thing in '91...
1:43 ... in '91 I said I would defend Russians! ...
1:48 ... and Trump said, he is going to defend Americans...
1:53 ... the middle class, the lower middle class, who have sunk into poverty...
1:56 Remember my slogan - 'For Russians, and for the poor!'
1:59 Trump wants the same thing
2:01 He wants the average white Joe to live well
2:04 Today they are still 70% of the population
2:06 Trump can still win with this
2:07 In 50 years it'll be over...
2:09 It'll be 70% latinos, blacks, and others...
2:11P lease call them 'Latin Americans', you'll hurt their feelings...
2:15 Ok, whatever... Mexicans, with big old Sombreros...
2:18 ... Acapulco, holidays, - a bunch of party monsters...
2:20 Latin America just wants to be on holiday...
2:22 Whereas your average American works!
2:24 Did you hear, the Mexicans asked Putin to help them deal with corruption...
2:26 Ha-ha
2:27 I'm just sayin' - it's an important day!
2:29 I call on all Russians on the 20th to dress well...
2:32 ... have a shave, put on your best suit...
2:34 And at 8pm, sit down to supper, and raise a glass of champagne
2:38 ... it will be 12pm in New York ...
2:40 ... and Donald Trump!...
2:42 ... this is the FIRST time in our LIVES! ...
2:44 ... that we can say that we are HAPPY! for America,
2:46 ... that she has a new leader ...
2:47 ... no matter what happens later! ...
2:49 ... yeah, he might not improve relations with Russia ...
2:51 ... he might not end the sanctions ...
2:53 ... we'll deal with all that later...
2:56 ... Americans made their choice ...
3:01 ... so what if it was a 50/50 split ...
3:03 ... so what that Hillary actually had a small majority ...
3:05 HALF of America wants something completely new
3:07 They don't want all these stupid invasions...
3:09 All this stupid hegemony...
3:11 They don't want the EU
3:13 The EU should collapse!
3:14 NATO should be disbanded!
3:16 I would even shut down the United Nations....
3:18 Donald Trump will change many things,
3:21 And make things better for everyone...
3:23 For Americans, for the whole world, and for us!
