    In the last election Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte defeated far right candidates Wilders. Perhaps even Europe is turning against the far right.

    Now that the US is getting back on track their economies will revive. But the muslim problem won't go away.

    The far right as you call it has and will always be there the issue is how will they continue to influence the agenda.

    Maybe. But Wilders party is now the second strongest and forming a government will be difficult because of the many parties in the Netherlands.

    Well, they are used to the need to find coalitions. . .and one thing ALL the parties agree with is that they don't want to have Wilders as part of their coalition. . .so that is good news!

    The US economy has been revived by President Obama. . .and it is still uncertain how the "tough guy" in the White house will managed to make anything but ennemies around the world with his "pretend America First" policies! I have to admit that IF HE FOLLOWED his own rules. . .and brought back all his businesses to America, and told his daughter to get her 50 million tons of clothing manufactured IN THE US instead of abroad. . .that might affect manufacturing!!!

    In any case. . .Trump inherited a good economy, especially if you compare it with what Obama inherited!
