Washington, D.C.: On the eve of European Parliament elections, many nations are experiencing a surge in support for pro-national sovereignty leaders. Britain’s new Brexit Party, lead by Nigel Farage, has surged to first place in the polls. Prime Minister Theresa May’s Tory party was pushed to fifth place.
“European voters have new footing in their struggle against globalist rule,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Pro-sovereignty sentiment is sweeping through nations tired of the oppressive, globalist European Union. Liberty-loving Europeans see President Trump’s reinvigorated American economy as a chance to reclaim their own national identities.
“Centuries ago, Europeans came to the New World in search of liberty. Now we, the product of their search for freedom, have an incredible opportunity to aid freedom seekers in the Old World. Today, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visits the White House. This is a wonderful connection for the U.S. to foster. Hungary is one of many nations now attempting to break from destructive, globalist policies and reclaim their heritage. The Trump Administration has a great chance to encourage and support these nations as they seek to free Europe from globalist shackles.”
