Over the past few years America has become “more divided, more aggressive and more liberal”, he said, citing news portal index.hu. He added that the spread of liberalism was demonstrated, for instance, by growing acceptance of drug use, same-sex-marriage and abortion.
Trump should be aware that “an overwhelming majority of societies around the world are unable and unwilling to identify themselves with these sick and shoddy death cults,” he said.
Bayer said that the new US president would have a substantial role in establishing a new global order.
