The mayor of Madrid and spokesman for the national PP, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, he has accused the “extreme left” of encouraging protests with an “institutional framework of messages” that remind him of the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, saying that “he was fine when they were storming the Capitol.”
In an interview in Espejo Público, Almeida has given this example knowing that “it is going to upset the extreme left.” “Those who rightly criticized Trump’s speech when he told those in the Capitol first ‘march on him’ and then ‘you have to go but you are absolutely right, you are fighting for your country, they have robbed us the elections’ … It is the same breeding ground, “he said.
“It is the same breeding ground that the far left is using right now to fuel riots in major cities. They tell them they are doing well, as Trump told them they were doing well when they were storming the Capitol,” he said.
