The election of Donald Trump could very well go down in history as one of the most significant political movements of the American 21st century, and has long believed to have impacts the world over.
Trump, who ran on an America First platform and a promise to bring his boardroom skills to the Oval Office, has been a surprisingly well-rounded international diplomat, accomplishing several feats that few, if any, presidents before him were able to.
Take the opening of dialogue with North Korea, for example.
But now it appears as though the sudden return to conservatism being heralded in the United States is going global, and President Trump believes that there could be some reverberations back in the States come 2020.
President Donald Trump again congratulated British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday after a historic victory for his party in the United Kingdom parliamentary elections.
“I think that might be a harbinger for what’s to come in our country; it was last time,” Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with Mario Abdo Benítez, president of Paraguay. He was referring to the 2016 Brexit vote that shocked global elites shortly before the president shocked them again by beating Hillary Clinton in the presidential elections.
American politics have often been mimicked by the United Kingdom, and vice versa, with conservative and liberal politicians often holding sway in both allied nation simultaneously.
This could be one of the best indicators yet of Trump’s coming success.
