Leirstein says to Aftenposten that Trump as president will lead to two major changes in Europe:

1. Relations with Russia will be normalized.

2. Europe will increasingly take the bill for its own defense.

He describes Trump as the only world leader who is ready for a dialogue with Putin. 

Leirstein is also very excited about Trump’s promises to build roads in the USA. 

- Perhaps the biggest surprise he came with was to build America with roads, hospitals and infrastructure. I think he’s going to achieve, says Leirstein to Aftenposten.

Also former Progress Party leader Carl I. Hagen celebrates Trump’s victory. 

- The choice of Trump was due to irritation about the establishment and power elite. They and unilateral media forgot to pay attention to ordinary people who have lost their jobs and who have not taken part from prosperity, Hagen says to Aftenposten.

He also thinks Trump will evolve into a more "normal" politician as he establishes himself in the White House.

Hagen had previously expressed his support and admiration for Trump and said that Donald Trump resembles him in many ways.
