In a recent interview for Breitbart News Former President Donald Trump claimed that he is a figurehead of a “great movement” worldwide that has led to conservative victories in Brazil, Italy, Sweden and Hungary.
“It’s a very simple movement: Give us borders, give us safe streets, we do not want crime, give us good education, give us dignity and give us respect as a nation. It is not complicated”, the former president said. “They saw what happened to me, they saw what happened to our country and now they’re comparing it to what’s happening with the Biden administration,” Trump said… It really became big. We started it—and it became very big. It’s happening here again. It’s happening now again because people see the results of the open borders and the stupidity taking place, the crime. All of the things that are happening in our country, other countries are watching”, added Trump.
Donald Trump has recently endorsed Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that in his interpretation lead to the current Brazilian president’s better than expected performance in the first round of election. Bolsonaro has polled double digits better than pollsters have predicted, preventing former left-wing President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva achieving a first-round victory.
Donald Trump has also claimed to have influenced the Hungarian elections in April this year to the benefit of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. “In other places, it was very funny—when I did it in Hungary, he (Viktor Orbán) came to see me actually recently to thank me. It made a tremendous difference. He’s a very good man”, the former president remarked.
When asked whether events in places like Sweden or Italy, where center-right governments have recently come to power were influenced by political developments in the US, Trump remarked that “a lot of people are using the United States as an example because they saw how well we did for four years. We had numbers that were incredible. Even though we got hit at the end by the virus but if you look at it we did unbelievably even at the end. The stock market was higher than it was—and prior to the virus coming in we had numbers the likes of which no country had ever seen before. They saw how well we did, and if you look, a lot of countries are going this way. Sweden also, by the way.”
