Diop who wasn’t even born in Italy is the face of the neo facist group called Fratelli d’Italia. Like Iwobi, who is Matteo Salvini’s Lega immigration arrowhead, Diop is Fratelli d’Italia’s immigration spokesman.
In a recent interview, Diop declared, “I’m the son of immigrants who arrived in Italy legally at a time when Italy’s economy was growing. Now it no longer is, so we can no longer welcome economic migrants.”
In the immigrant community, Diop is held derisively as more Italian than the one born and breed in the country.
