MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Donald Trump's victory has shown that ordinary US citizens have overcome the country's establishment despite all the projections, leader of Italian Eurosceptic Lega Nord party Matteo Salvini told Sputnik on Wednesday.
"The victory of Donald Trump is the revenge of US people, their bravery, and a highlight of a theme of labor and safety rules, despite all the speculations from bankers, journalists and sociologists. In this case, people beat the establishment with the score 3-0," Salvini said.
Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump got 289 electoral votes against Clinton's 228 votes, more than 270 needed to win, according to the NBC projection.
