Criticism against Donald Trump on the rise in Germany
Berlin, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) Criticism of the actions of U.S. President Donald Trump in the face of the domestic political crisis in his country currently grows in Germany across all parties.
Meanwhile, representatives of the opposition accused the German government of being too passive in the face of the aggressive attitude of the head of the White House.
While in the case of Hong Kong or Venezuela he is quick to condemn police action against violent protesters, he remains silent about police violence in the U.S. and Trump's threats of civil war, Jelpke said.
On Tuesday afternoon, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas expressed his understanding for the protests against police violence and racism in the United States, but the Social Democrat avoided open criticism of the northern ruler.
According to Maas, he hopes the protests will be non-violent, 'and much more', he said, 'I want to express the hope that these protests will mark a change of direction in the United States'.
The Chancellor also announced that he would contact US authorities after a team from 'Deutsche Welle' was caught in the line of fire by police during live coverage from Minneapolis.
While the federal government itself is restrained in its criticism of Donald Trump and his handling of the domestic political crisis, the government factions are much clearer.
