Trump’s victory sets example for Europe – Geert Wilders

Trump’s victory sets example for Europe – Geert Wilders
Donald Trump’s victory is a ‘revolution’ that ought to be copied in Europe, said far-right Dutch MP Geert Wilders, leader of the Eurosceptic and anti-immigration Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), in an interview with RT.

Donald Trump’s victory represents a victory for ordinary voters, said the controversial Dutch politician.“America regained its national sovereignty, its identity, it reclaimed its own democracy, that’s why I called it a revolution,” Wilders said.

“Now there is a leader, despite all the negativity spread about him by the political elite and the press, that has only one concern, and that is the national interest of the voters of America who are concerned about immigration, who are concerned about the job loss as a result of globalization, who are concerned about the Islamisation of their society. And he tends to say the truth and convince people that if they start moving, anything is possible, and I believe the historical event of yesterday will have an enormous effect on European politics as well.”
