Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte ruled out the possibility of a coalition with Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom, who is known for his anti-Islam rhetoric which grew after national elections on March 15.

Rutte said in an interview Sunday that the chance of his center-right Liberal Party forming a coalition with Wilders’ party was “zero.”

He said the reason behind the decision was Wilders’ hateful rhetoric and also his heavy criticism against a court who has found him guilty of racism.
