Greece: Neo-Nazi “Golden Dawn” Members Voice Support for Donald Trump

HeadlineJan 30, 2017

In Greece, members of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party held a torchlight parade in Athens on Saturday, calling for a ban on migrants entering Greece. Among those marching was member of Parliament Ilias Panagiotaros, who praised President Donald Trump’s ban on Muslim refugees and immigrants.

Ilias Panagiotaros: “We just see tens of thousands of illegal immigrants in our country and hundreds, thousands others that have already come to Greece years ago, and our country is an open field. Everyone can come whenever they want, and they can leave whenever they want. We would like to follow a policy like Donald Trump is doing in the States right now.”

Golden Dawn is the third-largest party in the Greek Parliament. Its members have been arrested for assaulting and murdering immigrants and political opponents, and the group’s emblem is a red-and-black flag resembling a swastika. In October, the party endorsed Donald Trump in the U.S. election.
