Trump-Backing Australia Lawmaker Ditches Turnbull for Own Party

by 8:30 PM 0 comments
Senator Cory Bernardi, 47, announced in Canberra on Tuesday that he?s forming his own Australian Conservatives party, just seven months after being re-elected to a six-year term representing Turnbull?s Liberal party. Bernardi is seeking to capitalize on voter frustration with mainstream politics that?s seen support rise for minor parties and independents. A Donald Trump-supporting conservative Australian lawmaker is breaking away from Malcolm Turnbull?s government as the prime minister battles to contain a populist mood that?s draining votes away from the major parties. While the prime minister will welcome the exit of the divisive senator, it may complicate Turnbull?s efforts to implement his legislative agenda. The author of a book called ?The Conservative Revolution? welcomed the election of Trump as president, and said in November he wanted to be a ?catalyst for change? in Australia.
