    Fabrizio Bertot, Italian politician with Forza Italia and Former member European Parliament said that the victory of Donald Trump over Democrat rival Hillary Clinton in US presidential elections shows that in the Western politics and media, as well as European institutions do not interpret the mood of the public, who should serve and represent.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The victory of Republican candidate Donald Trump over Democrat rival Hillary Clinton in US presidential elections indicates that Western media do not reflect the public sentiment, Fabrizio Bertot, Italian politician with Forza Italia and Former member European Parliament told Sputnik.

    "This victory shows that in the Western politics and media, as well as European institutions do not interpret the mood of the public, who should serve and represent," Bertot, who is also a former Mayor of Rivarolo Canavese municipality in the Metropolitan City of Turin, said.

    Earlier in the day, Trump won the US presidency despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Clinton.

    Trump got 289 electoral votes against Clinton's 218 votes, more than 270 needed to win, according to the CNN estimates.
