We have a double Trump effect.
The first Trump effect is on the media. All mainstream European media, especially German media, were lying to the European audience for 18 months.
The German mainstream media excluded the chance that Donald Trump could be elected as US president. They were absolutely sure of this and repeated this lie over and over again. Even the liberal American media didn’t exclude that Donald Trump might have a chance to win the election.
In elections to the regional parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Angela Merkel’s party suffered a crushing defeat. Her Christian Democratic Union won only third place behind the right-wing conservative Alternative for Germany party. What’s more, this is the base district of CDU head and German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s constituency.
