Wilders, whose Freedom Party is riding high in opinion polls ahead of Dutch elections due in March, calls Trump’s win in the presidential election “A historic victory! A revolution.”

 

Looking ahead to the Dutch vote, Wilders finished his tweet: “We also will give our country back to the people of the Netherlands.”

 

Wilders is known for his strident anti-Islam rhetoric and opposition to the Netherlands’ European Union membership.
