Washington D.C.: Elections for the European Parliament wrapped up over the weekend, showing gains for the pro-sovereignty populists in many countries. Friends of liberty found victory in France, Poland, Italy, Hungary, and especially the United Kingdom.
“The fake news media would have us believe the world looks down on Trump and his supporters, but this weekend’s EU elections show that’s hardly the case,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “The wave of pro-national sovereignty populist voters is spreading across the globe from the United States. Trump is leading the attack on globalism and other nations are watching!
“These European Parliament victories are wonderful, particularly the huge rejection of politics-as-usual ‘centrists’ in the UK. I’m proud to say President Trump and the United States are front and center in this stunning wave of conservative victory.”
