Italian Populist Salvini Pursues Alliance With Trump Administration

The leader of Italy’s Northern League party, Matteo Salvini, said he intends to beat out other parties in establishing direct relations with the Trump administration.

Salvini, who traveled to the United States to show his support for Trump during the campaign cycle last April, told Breitbart News Thursday that his party shares many of the perspectives of the new administration and is a logical ally for the future.

“On many issues we see eye-to-eye with President Trump and we look forward to partnering with his administration,” Salvini told Breitbart.

This privileged partnership will be built upon common interests including “labor, immigration, national security, and the proper role of supranational organizations, such as NATO, the European Union, and the U.N.,” Salvini said.

“These issues will determine the future,” he said.

At a conference on Globalism and Sovereignty held Wednesday in the Italian Parliament, Salvini said he was already taking steps to establish a direct rapport with the White House.

“We are working to get out ahead of other interlocutors with the new Trump administration,” Salvini told the Italian daily Il Giornale.

With “no shortcuts,” Salvini said he is establishing “direct, serious, non-mediated contact” with the new Trump administration, insisting that for the League, creating “a direct channel with the new American president is crucial.”
