In this week’s most shared tweets: Authoritarian leaders around the world, including Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, have praised President-elect Donald Trump’s victory. Populist and nationalist parties in Europe are making electoral gains on racist, xenophobic, and anti-immigrant political platforms similar to Trump’s. And Trump has done little to allay the fears of the general public in the midst of reports of spikes in hate crimes.

Also this week, Turkey is decimating what’s left of an independent press; Gambia cracks down ahead of elections; satellite images confirm mass destruction of Rohingya villages; and mass graves discovered near Mosul, Iraq.
