Salvini to Trump: “I can be your closest ally on the European continent”

With EU parliamentary elections fast approaching in May, Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is seeking to court a powerful ally across the Atlantic – Donald Trump.

In the past months, both Trump and Salvini have exchanged their fair share of blows with Germany’s Angela Merkel and France’s embattled president Emmanuel Macron.

But is an alliance based primarily on the common adversaries of the two populist leaders practical?

Without a doubt.

Salvini and Trump have more in common with one another than simply their distrust and antipathy towards the French and German leaders who recently joined hands to raise a ‘European Army’.

 
On the 25th of January Merkel and Macron met in the ancient western German city of Aachen and signed a new Franco-German friendship treaty which Merkel has stated ‘’contributes to the creation of a European army’.
