Matteo Salvini is loved by his people and his Lega Nord has soared in the polls as he has made significant progress in accomplishing his campaign promises:
“Italy’s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini spoke to thousands of supporters in a packed square in Rome on Sunday as his surging League party celebrates six months in power.
Organisers said around 80,000 people attended — many travelling from around the country — waving flags and banners with slogans such as “Italians first”, “Italy raises its head” and “Six months of common sense government”.
The 45-year-old Salvini, who is also deputy prime minister, referenced the “yellow vest” protests rocking neighbouring France.
“Those who sow poverty reap protests, those who sow false promises reap the response of those on the margins and the countryside,” he told the cheering crowd.
Salvini also lashed out at the European Union, which is in a stand-off with his government over Rome’s anti-austerity budget that has been rejected by Brussels because it sharply increases spending and the deficit. …”
Contrast with the rejection of cowardly, wildly unpopular globalist Macron who was holed up in the Elysee Palace while the police brutalized and arrested 1,723 Yellow Vests:

Everyone wants their countries back. Nobody wants unelected EU bureaucrats in charge.
This is what it looks like when the people decide to reject the false song of globalism, and embrace sovereignty over one’s own nation.
