Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party on Wednesday (November 9) hailed Donald Trump's election as president of the United States, calling it a victory against "illegal migration" and in favor of ethnically "clean" nations.

"In the American elections the forces which are fighting against globalization, are fighting against illegal migration and are in favor of clean ethnic states, in favor of self-sufficiency in the national economy, won," Golden Dawn party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris said in a televised statement."A great global change has begun, and it will continue with nationalists prevailing in Austria, Marie LePen in France and Golden Dawn in Greece," he added.

Golden Dawn went from being an obscure fringe group to entering parliament for the first time in 2012 after tapping into deep anger against economic austerity cuts that increased unemployment and poverty. It is the country's third largest party.
