Meet the Anglophile who could soon be Trump’s man in Brussels

This week, Dr Ted Malloch faces an Apprentice-style grilling at Trump Towers in New York to see if he will be hired as Donald Trump’s US ambassador to the EU. Like the President-Elect, he is in tune with the peaceful revolution of 2016 and argues that the liberal elite in Europe need to wake up to the new reality.“Davos-man is dead,” he declares. “Read the obituary. It is framed in the US election and all that Trump represents. The post-Berlin Wall globalisation consensus is over. Going around telling the locals that they are racists for opposing migration does not help. They are not racists, they are nationalists – and the reality is that just like homeowners they want to feel and see the benefits of home ownership or being a national. Building the country is now Trump’s political and economic imperative.” Share Meet the Anglophile who could soon be Trump’s man in Brussels More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their Tim Newark Malloch understands that voters have lost patience with the so-called benefits of globalisation and it is now the turn of European politicians to catch up with that truth.“No longer do we need to have ultimate allegiance paid to corrupt international organisations,” he says, “and think that globalisation or its attendant trade deals will solve all our ills. It has disenfranchised extensive swaths of our populations. Those groups have seen their median incomes fall in the last decade and a half and their costs rise, while disproportionally suffering from under and non-employment. Thanks to blue-collar populism, these working people have now spoken and they have found a voice in Trump. His administration and what it will build is more about hope and change than rage.”But Malloch will be no populist bull in a Brussels china shop. The former Oxford professor and current member of the Institute of Economic Affairs’ academic advisory council is an experienced diplomat, having served on many international bodies. During the Cold War, he served at an ambassadorial level in Geneva as deputy to the executive secretary of the UN Economic Commission for Europe. He speaks German and French and is a Europhile complete with a Scottish surname and Roosevelt family ties. Immediately after the US election, Malloch was invited to Brussels to address the distinguished EU Montesquieu Forum.Read more: The liberal left will keep losing until they empathise with their enemies“For all the turmoil, turbulence, and sheer reality-show melodrama of the 2016 US presidential campaign,” he told them, “the actual results deepen long-standing trends in the electorate rather than shatter them. You may think the Trump election is a so-called black swan event or as one commentator called it a ‘white lash’. It is not. Rather it is part and parcel of a much larger global pendulum swing towards populism and nationalism after decades of elitist globalism. These trends are perceived as problematic for governance, partisanship and democracy. But in fact they spell a different consequence, one that promises market-based solutions, more inclusive capitalism and greater participation and reassertion of national sovereignty.” whatsapp Wednesday 4 January 2017 4:59 am whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryOne-N-Done | 7-Minute Workout7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutHealthyGemBaby Has Never Eaten Sugar Or Carbs, Wait Till You See Her TodayHealthyGemSportPirateMeet The Woman Catherine Bell Is Dating At 52SportPirateMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailZen HeraldEllen Got A Little Too Personal With Blake Shelton, So He Said ThisZen HeraldMedical MattersThis Picture Shows Who Prince Harry’s Father Really IsMedical MattersAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic Mirrormoneycougar.comDiana’s Butler Reveals Why Harry Really Married In conclusion, talking to the Brussels elite, he reassured them that it was not all bad news. “Yes, Trump’s success will embolden populist anti-establishment parties across Europe and around the world. Face it: this is the new reality but it is not necessarily injurious to democracy or Montesquieu’s original notions of a commercially based Republic. In fact, it could under the best circumstances and with the right personnel enhance both.”Read more: It’s time to face facts: Pandora’s Box is open and Europe is finishedThroughout the US election, Malloch was very close to Trump and was a key adviser. His insider’s view of the campaign, Hired (WND Books), with an afterword by Nigel Farage, is published this week. This insight makes him the perfect lightning rod for EU politicians to get a real understanding of where the Trump administration is coming from.“Make no mistake, Trump and his ilk are not anti-trade,” he insists, “and most certainly, as entrepreneurs and most importantly builders, firmly believe in market-based fairly played capitalism. They just don’t want or see the results of a long-term system rigged to benefit only the few, the well connected, the super-elites, who game the system or force their one-world globalism on the rest of us.”There should be no fear either of him going native in the corridors of Brussels and taking a position against the UK. “In the UK, Brexiteers can take heart from the victory of another anti-establishment figure. His political sympathies for Brexit could lead him to prioritise a trade agreement with the UK once the country leaves the EU. It will also ensure a stronger US-UK Special Relationship.”Let’s hope that Malloch’s interview in Trump Towers goes well and he hears the legendary Trump phrase “You’re hired!”
