What Does German Heritage Mean To You?
Trump says he's not a racist; he says he's the least racist man in the entire universe. He did tell a crowd at one of his hate rallies in Indiana though, that he believes all Americans of Kenyan descent should be deported back to Kenya, including President Obama. He said, for example, that "Africans are lazy fools, only good at eating, lovemaking and thuggery... In my opinion most of these African countries ought to be recolonized again for another 100 years because they know nothing about leadership and self-governance." He doesn't feel the same way about Germans, the country his ancestors came from. "I'm proud to have that German blood; there's no question about it. Great stuff," Trumpf told a German TV audience. "I'm strong and I'm very reliable. I'm on time; I get things done... That's a German culture."
Germans tend not to feel the same way about Trump.Most think he's too bigoted and extremist. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier recently described him as a "preacher of hatred." And Friday tDer Spiegel reported that the German government is concerned about the possibility of a Trump victory. They sent an emissary to meet with a Trump campaign official too figure out what a Trump victory would mean for German-American relations. They reported that the German Finance Ministry concluded that a Trump victory would mean 'a shrinking gross domestic product, fewer jobs and higher unemployment'-- developments which would negatively impact German exporters. Trump's economic ideas, furthermore, 'aren't feasible,' violate international or US law and could not 'provide the foundation for a realistic economic policy.'"
