Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer told CNN on Friday that President Trump and Trumpism have the “momentum” in Europe, pointing out that Trump is more popular than most European leaders.

The situation in Europe “points to the momentum politically today,” Bremmer said. “If you ask, who is momentum with right now – Theresa May or Donald Trump? It’s Trump.”

“Trump’s popularity ratings in the United States right now are higher than May’s [in the U.K.]. They’re higher than Macron’s in France. They’re higher than Merkel’s in Germany,” he added.

Bremmer, also a Time editor, explained that Trump’s nationalist, anti-immigration rhetoric resonated with Europeans across the NATO alliance.
