Antigua Wants Trump to End Online Gambling Fight

Antigua and Barbuda is optimistic that a Donald Trump Administration could finally lead to the end of a decade-long online gaming dispute with the United States.

According to a report from the Jamaica Observer, the island nation’s Governor General, Sir Rodney Williams, believes that Trump will move to resolve the matter in a way that’s satisfactory to his government.

“My government believes that the new administration that is about to take office will recognize the lawfulness and justness of our actions and will quickly settle the differences that have kept our negotiators apart,” Williams said prior to Trump’s inauguration.

“Hopefully the U.S. would not turn to intimidation and revenge.”
