It is now clear that Donald Trump is NOT an American phenomenon, but just one of many such leaders who are seizing power throughout Europe. Poland has a right wing government that even is attacking abortion rights as well as attacking human rights. Hungary has Prime Minister Orban who has made his career out of attacking immigrants as ‘destroying the nation of Hungary with their Islamic values.” Right wing Trumpites are gaining power in Germany, in Austria, in Germany, and now soon in France.
France has had the Popular Front led by Marine Le Pen who for years has blamed all problems on Muslim immigrants. Now, Francois Fillon has emerged as another right wing Trumpite who promises to make France great again by getting rid of Muslim immigrants. He termed the Muslim religion and its “radicalism as having no place here.” He is also against gay marriage and against abortion. Once again a leader who will make France Great Again by appealing to hate and violence. There is a strong probability he will this spring become President of France!
