German FM: Turbulent  Times to Trail TrumpGerman FM: Turbulent  Times to Trail Trump

Germany's foreign minister on Sunday predicted turbulent times ahead for the world following Donald Trump's accession to power in the United States.

"With the election of Donald Trump, the world of the 20th century has definitely been overtaken," Frank-Walter Steinmeier wrote in a commentary published in the Bild am Sonntag newspaper, the German news website reported.

Steinmeier, 60, has emerged in recent months as the German government's most strident detractor of Trump.

He had warned a day after Trump's shock election in November that relations would become "more difficult".

In his article on Sunday, Steinmeier warned that the world was headed "for turbulent times."

"In these times of fresh global disorder, this will go further...there is a lot at stake," he said.
