The far-right stuff

A recent Washington Post article compared presidential candidate Donald Trump’s political popularity to the rise of far-right groups in Europe.

The article quoted Cas Mudde, an associate professor of international affairs in the UGA School of Public and International Affairs.

“Trump himself doesn’t hold a populist radical right ideology,” Mudde said, “but his political campaign clearly caters to populist radical right attitudes, and his supporter base is almost identical to the core electorate of populist radical right parties in (Western) Europe.”
