The national elections in Holland has just ended, and the outcome is a rejection of the xenophobic, anti-muslim rhetoric that swept Donald Trump into power.
Addressing supporters in Holland,Dutch PM Rutte says his win stops `wrong sort of populism’ in its tracks .
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Wednesday was moving toward a dominating parliamentary election victory over anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders. This was an unsuccessful test of this year’s first litmus test for populism in Europe.
With France and Germany facing elections in the months ahead, Rutte hoped to slow the momentum of what he called the “wrong sort of populism” after last’s year British vote to leave the European Union and the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.
