Sweden Democrat: Trump will be good for Europe

Mikael Jansson: Exciting to see Trump win
1:51 min

One of the few supporters of Donald Trump in the Swedish parliament is Mikael Jansson, of the nationalist Sweden Democrat party.

Jansson tells Radio Sweden he thinks Trump will be a powerful leader and good for Europe if he is able to follow through with his plans to build up the US economy.

Jansson did add that he hoped Trump would tone down his rhetoric which was, at times during his campaign, vulgar and heavy on personal attacks.

"I think he could use such a technique in the election campaign but now, as a president, he would be more formal," he says.
