Czech election: Billionaire Babis wins by large margin

Over the weekend, the Czech Republic held its election in which the ANO Party, headed by Andrej Babis, won 30% of the vote. Babis ran on an anti-establishment and anti-EU platform and one of his main focuses was to solve the migration problem occurring in Europe. Babis's views are considered "extreme" by many, especially the current PM who questioned why people would vote for Babis when the country is doing fine. This election continues this theme that the world, and not just the US, are experiencing a wave of these "Trump-like" candidates winning elections.
