Italy: Renzi congratulates Trump on victory in US elections

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi congratulated the US President-elect Donald Trump while speaking from the School of Specialization for Police Forces in Rome on Wednesday.
Renzi said "On Italy's behalf, I congratulate the President of the USA and I hope that he does a good job, convinced as I am, and as we are, that the Italo-American friendship will continue to be strong and solid. I believe this should be the starting point of the entire international community, even with the differences and suspiciousness that a certain campaign has clearly created overseas and here."
Trump declared victory in the early hours of Wednesday morning, after his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton called him to concede defeat following a bitterly fought election battle.
