World leaders warn Trump is a threat to world peace

Business mogul Donald Trump secured two more victories Saturday night in Louisiana and Kentucky, further solidifying his lead in the race to the Republican nomination. World leaders are starting to sound the alarm as they watch the U.S. presidential race shape up.

Germany’s Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel warned Trump is a threat to world peace in an interview with German newspaper Welt am Sonntag on Sunday.

“Whether Donald Trump, Marine le Pen or Geert Wilders — all these right-wing populists are not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also to economic development,” Gabriel said.

Trump’s most well known policy proposals involve bullying other nations — such as repeatedly pledging to force Mexico to pay for a border wall to keep immigrants out — and openly violating international law.

Trump clarified he would not break international law but only seek to change it to allow for torture in an interview with CBS’ John Dickerson Sunday morning.

“You know, it’s very tough to beat enemies that don’t have any, that don’t have any restrictions, all right? We have these massive restrictions. Now, I will always abide by the law, but I would like to have the law expanded,” Trump said.

“I happen to think that when you’re fighting an enemy that chops off heads, I happen to think that we should use something that’s stronger than we have right now,” he continued. “Right now, basically, waterboarding is essentially not allowed, as I understand it. … I would certainly like it to be, at a minimum, at a minimum to allow that.”

Trump has repeatedly said the U.S. should bring back waterboarding and other forms of torture that are “a hell of a lot worse,” even though they constitute international war crimes. He’s also called for other violations of international law, including deliberately wiping out terrorists’ families.

The German Vice Chancellor joins a chorus of overseas voices warning against Trump’s particularly brash brand of racism and xenophobia. The Mexican government passed a ban this week to keep Trump from entering the country, fed up with his racist rhetoric about Mexican immigrants and continued insistence he will force Mexico to pay for a wall. German publication Der Spiegel calls Trump “the world’s most dangerous man.”

Even far-right politicians in other nations aren’t on board with the rise of Trump. The leader of a far-right Swedish nationalist party that began in the Neo-Nazi movement told Breitbart News Trump would be bad news for the world. “If Donald Trump won… I don’t think he will, I hope he doesn’t,” he said. “He is very good at making speeches but as a politician and a world leader? No, I don’t think that’s a very good idea.”

Honesty is the best policy.

    Quoting  :

You sounded that although you don't like Trump, but in between Trump and Hillary Clinton, you would choose Trump. Tell me what make you choose Trump over Hillary Clinton? Because the e-mail scandal?? She has more experience than Trump.

Honesty is the best policy.

America has a lot of good people, who want to see a unified nation of people.
It may take even more time before stereotypes are mellowed, and the poor employment sectors does not help the situations any at all.
the Republican system over the past 7 yrs has gone through a even deeper downfall than what drove them off the cliff during the Bush Administration.
America will never be the image of single ethnicity that was once promoted, and over time, the die hard's will have to figure it out. It's not likely that racism will fade away within the next decade. it is likely to get worst before it gets better, because in the rural areas, and those who fill the land spaces in many places will eventually have to face up to the fact, the world and the nation never liked the racist ideology which it was driven to follow for so long. When America Business wake up and come to realization they can no longer seek slaves around the globe, without loosing even more stability at home in this nation, then they will awaken. But that too is more than a decade away, as the past and current generations still have this lust for material greed and the pursuit of material excess.
Time and things will at some point bring people to realize, money, material things, greed, avarice and hoarding has led every great nation to ruins, hopefully people learn better before it is accelerated any more in the decline of this nation as well as other nations around the world.

Trump from what he says has grown up in the Jim Crow styled years in a family that had resources, but it is quite likely he too grew up without much diversity- so his early years recall is of a life of privileged and single ethnicity dominance, It's not likely he tried to learn much beyond that of others and the expanse of the economic disparity, and other things which devastated a great many people and choked down minorities of all ethnic groups for many many many decades.
He speaks as if he thinks America will again be a dictatorship. ( it was at one time where whites held themselves as dictators to minorities), Somehow Trump thinks he can be a dictator to the masses, and he plays hard to gather as much and as many of the poor and uneducated as he can amass together, as well as those who have some resources, but anguished because they don't have the public stature to do as they once did in general society.
If he was smart, he would have focused on his message about banks, and industry, but he can't keep that in focus because he still does not see All American people as being Fully Americans.

Even among the Republicans have "Anti-Trump", i.e. Mitt Romney that are NOT Democrats.

ARTILLERY28: You are an Aussie and you have no right to vote for U.S. President. FYI, my TV is on CNN and CNBC not on FOX.

With all due respect, laogui, you are an Aussie too and have no right to vote in USA. I won't waste my only one vote on crazy, ridiculous Trump.

So, John62Claude, you like Trump's idea to build a wall in between USA and Mexico borders and have Mexico pay for it. It is a "pipe dream" that Mexico will pay for it. If Mexico won't pay, will Trump attack Mexico? Besides, people can fly over to USA, if they want to come.

I am NOT "political correct" (not a chicken to speak out), I just want to be "correct" for "PEACE ON WORLD".

Honesty is the best policy.
