Thursday, July 12, 2018

A day before President Donald Trump's arrival here, leaders of Europe's rough-edged populist movement quietly filed into a five-star hotel in London's Mayfair district, unnoticed by summer tourists enjoying their clotted cream. Louis Aliot, a right-wing French politician and boyfriend of the French populist firebrand Marine Le Pen, walked through the lobby to a conference room tucked away behind the restaurant serving afternoon tea.

So did Nigel Farage, the right-wing British politician and Brexit mastermind whom the local tabloids say is "banned" by his government from meeting with President Donald Trump during his visit.

They had all come to see Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who had set up a bare war room, of sorts, in a conference room at the hotel to confer and conspire with leaders of Europe's surging populist movement.
