Immediate reactions to Julian Assange's arrest at the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London have shown the vast divide between pro-WikiLeaks/Trump advocates and NeverTrumpers and Hillary Clinton supporters. 

Many advocates of the Wikileaks founder expressed dismay of his arrest, while Hillary supporters celebrated. 

Prime Minister Theresa May, who failed the will of the British People following the recent Brexit delay, praised Assange's arrest in Parliament.

“In the United Kingdom, nobody is above the law,” said May.

British Foreign Minister Sajid Javid also praised Ecuadorian officials in handling the Wikileaks founder.

Meanwhile, reactions from various American commentators and Former Hillary Clinton adviser and president of the Center for American Progress accused Assange of “fascist behavior” and “undermin[ing] democracy.”

But Trump supporters expressed upset, calling the publisher a “hero” for WikiLeaks’ work in exposing wrongdoing by the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016.

“A sad day for whistleblowers everywhere,” said the highest-voted commenter on The_Donald, the center of Trump supporters on Reddit.

Infowars's Paul Joseph Watson called on Trump to pardon the WikiLeaks publisher.

“It’s time to find out whether Trump sides with his base or with the deep state that has been trying to subvert his presidency for the past two years,” said Watson.

In November 2010, Sweden issued an international arrest warrant for Assange over allegations of sexual assault and rape.

Assange denied the allegations and said that he would be extradited from Sweden to the United States because of his role in publishing secret American documents.

Julian Assange surrendered to UK police on 7 December 2010 but was released on bail within ten days.
