The populist Italian government is standing up for its people against third-world invaders, and that has caused them to earn the ire of globalists at the European Union (EU) who want to make an example of Italy for having the nerve to exert its national sovereignty.
But the backlash from the EU has also drawn the attention of the United States, and in a good way. The Trump administration likes the bold populist leadership of Italian deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini, and the US ambassador to Italy recently spoke publicly in favor of the brash new Italian regime.
“Beyond how each of us think of it, the last elections in Italy have shown that the people have spoken: this is democracy,” U.S. Ambassador to Italy Lewis Eisenberg said during a recent summit.
“The current government in Italy is the quintessence of democracy in action,” Eisenberg added, noting that “a chemistry and an evident mutual understanding” has developed between Trump and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.
Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Five Star Movement leader Luigi Di Maio, and Lega Nord chief Matteo Salvini are running the show in Italy, and they have become a nightmare for the EU. Their fearless agitating of the globalists have forced them to show their true colors as the enemies of national identity.
“Salvini said that during the election campaign, every time I opened my mouth, he would gain votes. I do not want to be useful to him. I want to be useful to Italy. I do not see a single reason why EPP can develop a relationship with Salvini. We already have Orban and that is enough,” said frequently sauced European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
But Juncker fell right into Salvini’s trap, as he relishes any opportunity to make a punching bag of Juncker and other EU bureaucrats who become more reviled by the people with each passing day.
“I’ve never raised my tone: I do not raise my tone and I do not raise my glass. I don’t do anything,” Salvini said of Juncker, just getting warmed up.
“This gentleman is the head of the government that presides over 500 million Europeans, he’s a man who comes from a tax haven like Luxembourg. The fact that Italians have to depend on the moods of a guy who was minister in Luxembourg seems strange to me,” Salvini added.
“If you type on Google ‘Juncker sober’ or ‘stumbling’ you will see clear, sometimes impressive images,” Salvini said, finishing with the kill shot of the globalist drunkard.
Trump clearly likes the style of Salvini and other European populists. Perhaps following Trump-Kim 2.0, the President can arrange many other summits with these bold European right-wing nationalists.
