Weird Tweets from Finnish politicians: MEP Laura Huhtasaari’s praise of Trump

by , under Enrique Tessieri

MEP Laura Huhtasaari is a white supremacist politician from Finland. Her tweets are schizophrenic: for English readers, she has one message and for her Finnish followers another.

What would people who can’t read Finnish think about her tweets in that language? In Finnish-language tweets, Huhtasaari commonly praises US President Donald Trump, and Hungary’s strongman, Viktor Orbán.

I doubt she would publish the tweet below in English.

“There is a strange habit in the world to hate people you don’t know. For example, Trump. What bad has he done except kept his campaign promises? Does hating make you a better person?”
