Trump to the Netherlands, 6 June 2019?

This 21 January 2017 video is about the Women’s March against Donald Trump in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad, 9 November 2018, reports that Peter Hoekstra, appointed by Donald Trump as United States ambassador to the Netherlands, wants Trump to come to former United States military airbase Soesterberg in Utrecht on 6 June 2019. On that day is the 75 years’ commemoration of D-Day, the allied invasion of Normandy in 1944.

Will Trump then speak like British Conservative weekly The Spectator, which in an article on D-Day praised Adolf Hitler’s Wehrmacht military?

On 10 November 2018, the Algemeen Dagblad reported about the mayor of Soest local authority, which includes Soesterberg. The mayor, a member of the right-wing VVD party, does not like the prospect of Trump coming to his area: ‘too complex’ from a security viewpoint.

There have already been big demonstrations against Trump in the Netherlands when he was not present. If Trump will indeed come to the Netherlands, then one may expect even bigger protests.
