Something has been happening in Europe.
Open borders and unregulated immigration has taken a massive toll on security, jobs, and public services.
Violent crime by migrants have become everyday news. Jobs are being filled by low wage foreign workers. Budgets are exploding as a massive wave of immigrants puts a huge strain on the budgets of already overstretched governments.
Does this sound familiar?
Parties and leaders have grown in popularity by promising to end illegal immigration, improve the economies, get control of budgets and start putting the citizens ahead of political correctness.
From England to France, The Netherlands to Germany, nationalists are ascendant as traditional politics fails…just like Donald Trump in America. These new leaders are looking for friends and their alliance seems to be strengthening.
It looks like Trump has an ally in Matteo Salvini, leader of Italy’s Northern League.
They met in Pennsylvania to discuss the issue of immigration and the economy. And it looks like they both left the meeting optimistic, showing support for both their causes.
When you look at the situation in Europe, you’ll see a similar immigration crisis as we have in America.
While we suffer from illegals coming through the Mexican border, posing a threat to our economy and national security, Italy and other countries have been suffering the consequences of unregulated refugees pouring into their countries.
The end result being a drastic spike in violent crimes, including shocking acts of terror.
So it’s no surprise that at least one leader from overseas finds Trump as an ally.
During the campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Salvini was holding a “Trump: Make America Great Again” poster and afterward had a 20-minute meeting with the Republican presidential front-runner.
As Salvini assured Trump of his support for victory next November 8, the New York magnate returned the campaign well-wishes, declaring, “Matteo, I hope you become Prime Minister soon.”
On the question of the immigration crisis, the two men reportedly were in “total agreement,” and discussed the need for policies targeting the populations of countries of origin to keep them from fleeing from hunger and poverty.
Italy’s Northern League is a growing political party, mounting efforts to combat the country’s migrant crisis. It seems the Italian people are responding. The party has seen significant growth in just 3 years.
The League bounced back from an all-time low of just 4% in the 2013 elections to 16-17% support in recent polls… the League now embraces conservatives throughout Italy and last May took 20 percent of the vote in Tuscany’s regional elections, a leftist stronghold and home to Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
Should both these men achieve the political positions they are working towards, they might be staunch allies in the years to come.
