Red Bull CEO Dietrich Mateschitz has given a rare interview to the Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung, announcing his plans to found a new conservative media outlet.
In the interview, the 72-year-old billionaire harshly criticized both Germany and Austria’s policies on refugees. “None of the people shouting ‘refugees welcome’ or ‘we can do it’ were preparing their own guest rooms or tents in their gardens to accommodate half a dozen migrants,” he said. Mateschitz then condemned political correctness in the media, voiced his support for Donald Trump and announced plans for a news outlet called Näher an die Wahrheit (Closer To The Truth). He criticized a high-profile Belgian official for implying that “countries with homogeneous cultures should vanish from the face of the earth.”
