Sure, Putin Is a Thug, But, Herr Trump, He's Barking Mad.
The Washington Post reports that Germans have got Donald Trump pretty well sorted out.
It’s official: Germans are more worried about President Trump than Russian President Vladimir Putin.
That, at least, is the result of a poll published Friday by FG Wahlen for public broadcaster ZDF, in which a whopping 78 percent of Germans asked said they were “very concerned” about Donald Trump's policies, up from 62 percent in January. Meanwhile, 58 percent said they were worried about the politics of Russian President Vladimir Putin, while 40 percent said they weren't.
“It sounds tough, but after this memorable press conference one hopes that there's a good medical department in the White House to check whether everything really is all right with this man,” wrote Veit Medick, a Washington correspondent for Der Spiegel.
