Geert Wilders thinks that the Netherlands could have a strong ally in Donald Trump, should he be elected presidents of the United States, the PVV leader said to BNR on Monday.

"He is someone who lets himself be heard, primarily choosing for the interest of his own people. For both domestic and foreign politics, he would be a nice American leader, who may not always be good for Europe, but defends the interests of his own people. I wish we had political leaders in the Netherlands who fight for their own country and forget the rest a bit."

Wilders was invited to attend the Republican convention, which starts in Cleveland, Ohio today. He is looking forward to it. "It's great to be able to take part in it as politician", he said to BNR.
