US President Donald Trump has been dividing American society, mostly on Twitter, since he began his very first presidential campaign. Slovakia had been, similarly, undergoing dark times before electing Zuzana Čaputová as the Slovak president.
Anne Applebaum, a columnist for the Washington Post, has compared the USA and Slovakia in her latest commentary, praising Slovakia’s president.
"Čaputová’s success offers hope that even when politics seem to be at their darkest and most dangerous, a new political project, one that no one imagined before, can still capture the public imagination," the columnist wrote.
