Make Europe Great Again! Trumpism is Winning in Europe

A lot of people are sick and tired of the EU and its totalitarian, top down leadership style. The EU’s suicidal migration policies are bankrupting our welfare systems and have also brought crime and ISIS to our doorstep. It took a while, but Europeans have awoken and are ready to “clean the swamp” of the establishment.
The first big anti-establishment move was Brexit and shortly after it came the election victory of Donald Trump. While Brexit is losing its charm under Theresa “the appeaser” May, Trump’s victory is becoming more inspiring for Europeans every day.
Big “Trump-inspired” movements emerged in the Netherlands, France and Germany with relatively good election results as a consequence: Wilders’ Freedom Party finished second in the Netherlands, Marine Le Pen had the most support ever in France, even making it to the second round of the presidential election, and Weidel (and Garland’s) AfD had a surprisingly good result in the German elections and finished third.

But things would become even better for patriotic, common sense Europeans. With one of the most powerful speeches on European soil President Trump showed Europeans and the West what is truly important now:

“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?”

“Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”

“We can have the largest economies and the most lethal weapons anywhere on Earth, but if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive.”

With his high energy speech, President Trump highlighted Poland as an important ally in the fight against totalitarianism. It was important, it was symbolic; for much too long a country like Poland was seen as backward by Western Europe’s establishment and for all the wrong reasons, e.g. it hadn’t adopted corporatism, multiculturalism and political correctness.

Trump’s speech showed a lot of Europeans that Western Europe’s establishment is wrong and that Poland is right: Its conservatism, its values and its fight against (illegal) immigration are the right way forward. The result is that no-go zones do not exist in Poland, neither does terrorism or migrant rape epidemics.

It is clear that Trump’s election victory was an important push in the right direction

Hungary can be seen as an extension of Poland’s conservatism and both join with Slovakia and the Czech Republic to form the “Visegrád Four”. The V4 group is opposed to the EU’s migration plans and it is against taking culturally incompatible migrants who won’t assimilate.

Hungary itself reduced illegal immigration by more than 99 percent by starting the construction of a fence two years ago. Its Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán, was clearly inspired by Trump’s inauguration and said:

“We have received permission from, if you like, the highest position in the world so we can now also put ourselves in first place.”

But he wasn’t the only one. While Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen and Nigel Farage already supported Trump during the elections, more “mainstream leaders” implicitly supported his policies as well:

Poland’s new Prime Minister said last month:

“This is a struggle for Polish property and Polish capital,” he says. “I’m asking everyone for help. Let’s reclaim Poland together.”

Austria’s new Chancellor pledged to ‘make Austria great again’ and said after his election victory:

“I want to put Austria back on top.. I want to provide security and order, because the Austrian people deserve it.”

One of Italy’s favourites to win in upcoming national elections praised President Trump’s tax cuts and said:

“The Italy I have in mind for the next few years: reduces taxes and attract businesses.”

It is clear that Trump’s election victory was an important push in the right direction. Europe’s conservative leaders are increasingly adopting his strategies and feel supported by our most important ally again.

Instead of Obama’s fearmongering and globalist outlook, Trump shows he really cares about us Europeans:

“Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are.”

Thank you, Mr. President, the time has indeed come to make Europe great again and you can guide us through this rocky journey like the North Star or a lodestone that points to liberty.
