Dragnea also mentioned that Trump’s answer was: “We will make it happen! Romania is important for us!” He added that his dialogue with Trump was “warm and open”.
The international media wrote that the events that take place before the inauguration, in which foreign state officials and business people get the chance to attend private dinners with the new U.S. President and Vice President, are available for top donors. To access such an event, those interested must donate between USD 500,000 and USD 1 million, according to Politico.
