Germany Joins Anti-Trump Camp

Germany Joins Anti-Trump Camp

German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel has criticized leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as a right-wing populist whose political views pose a threat to peace and prosperity.
The comments by Gabriel, economy minister and leader of the Social Democrats, are the clearest sign yet that ruling politicians in Europe are increasingly worried about the outcome of the US presidential elections, Reuters reported.
“Whether Donald Trump, Marine le Pen or Geert Wilders—all these rightwing populists are not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also to economic development,” Gabriel told Welt am Sonntag newspaper in an interview published on Sunday.
Gabriel said Trump and France’s Le Pen were promising voters “a way back into a fairytale world” in which economic activity only happened within national borders but that history has shown such isolated economies have no chance to develop.
“We have to make the effort to explain how we want to shape globalization in a fair way,” Gabriel said.
Politicians in Germany and elsewhere in Europe have watched as businessman and reality TV star Trump has moved from long shot to frontrunner of the Republicans seeking the party’s nomination ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election.
Trump has described German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s welcoming policy toward refugees as “insane” and predicted it would cause rioting in Germany.
