Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Brexit in June, Trump in November, what about 2017?
There will be elections in France (presidential in May, parliament in June) and in Germany (Bundestag) in September. The same people who helped Trump to power are taking their sights to Europe:

Riding Trump wave, Breitbart News plans U.S., European expansion

The right-wing Breitbart News Network is expanding its U.S. operations and launching sites in Germany and France, its U.S. editor-in-chief told Reuters, as it seeks to monetize the anger and anti-immigrant sentiment unleashed by Donald Trump's successful presidential campaign.

The planned expansion is one sign of how the right-wing media landscape is shifting in the wake of Trump's campaign to provide a platform for the more radical views that helped fuel the Republican candidate's shock election victory on Tuesday.

Breitbart, which already has a U.K. website, has begun interviewing European journalists to staff the planned new Breitbart France and Breitbart Germany sites, Marlow said. The aim is to help elect right-wing politicians in the two European countries, where anti-immigrant sentiment has been on the rise, sources close to Bannon said.
