The Conservative Party has elected Boris Johnson, a favorite of President Donald Trump who is an outspoken supporter of the Brexit, as the new Prime Minister of Britain, succeeding the vanquished Theresa May who recently resigned from her position.
Johnson won the vote of his party members by a resounding two-thirds majority, making him the clear choice to lead the Tories. He received 92,153 votes while his competitor, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, received only 46,656 votes.
Hunt was an outspoken campaigner for Britain to remain in the European Union while Johnson was and continues to be one of the most outspoken supporters of the leave campaign. It is clear that the Tories will be firmly behind the Brexit with Johnson at the helm, as his predecessor’s lack of strength on the issue ultimately sealed her political doom.
President Trump immediately talked up Johnson as the new British PM at a rally in Washington, offering him the highest of possible praise by comparing Johnson to himself.

“We are going to energize the country,” Johnson said while giving his victory speech at the Queen Elizabeth II center in London.
“We are going to get Brexit done on 31 October and take advantage of all the opportunities it will bring with a new spirit of can do,” he added. “We are once again going to believe in ourselves, and like some slumbering giant we are going to rise and ping off the guy ropes of self doubt and negativity.”

Johnson’s pledge to achieve a Brexit regardless of the negotiations has already caused the resignations of Education Minister Anne Milton and justice secretary David Gauke, two bureaucrats who want to continue to deny the people the Brexit they voted for.

It remains to be seen if Johnson can live up to his “do or die” mandate by Oct. 31. If he reneges on his pledge to pull off the Brexit by that date, he could be remembered alongside May as an ineffectual Tory PM as Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage waits in the wings.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
The message can be read here.
