Geert Wilders’ similarities to Donald Trump don’t stop at his perfectly quaffed, bleached hair. The world-famous, nationalist Dutch politician has ridden the populist wave to notable acclaim.
Like Trump, Wilders has lived in the limelight for decades but, unlike Trump, always in the political arena. He tweets recklessly and creates controversy for political expediency. The media hates him and his supporters love him for it. He campaigns vehemently against immigration and portrays himself as positively anti-establishment.
Both Wilders and Trump have been accused of appealing to their supporters’ lesser instincts.
Most Americans don’t know Wilders’ name, but documentary filmmakers Stephen Robert Morse and Nick Hampson hope to change that with the release of “EUROTRUMP.”
