Netherlands: Wilders praises Trump's Executive Orders banning Muslims

Netherlands, The Hague
February 2, 2017 at 18:48 GMT -00:00 · Published

Leader of the far-right Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) Geert Wilders praised Donald Trump and his immigration ban at a presentation for Joost Niemoller's new book 'Rage' at The Hague on Thursday.

Speaking to the press, Wilders stated that Trump had "done more to beat the mass immigration in two weeks time than the whole European governments" in its whole existence, adding that with a leader like Trump, recent militant attacks could have been prevented.

The far-right leader was handed a copy of the book which deals with mass immigration in Europe and said "we can learn that if we represent the people, if we take these problems when it comes to crime, immigration, Islamisation, when we take that problem seriously that people feel represented and people can strengthen the democracy instead of weakening it."

Wilders was convicted of inciting discrimination during a speech he made in March, 2014. At a political rally he asked a crowd of supporters whether they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands. When the crowd began to chant "fewer fewer" a smiling Wilders replied: "We'll take care of that."
