Etwas ganz anderes: Schlimm, daß Frau Clinton nicht ganz stabil gesund ist. Eine furchtbare Vorstellung auch für die allermeisten in Deutschland, daß ein Kerl namens Trump Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten werden könnte.
A German friend, a retired professor of linguistics, wrote to me today, unprovoked, the above sentence:
Something completely different: Terrible, that Mrs. Clinton is not completely healthy. A frightening notion also for almost all people in Germany is that a bloke named Trump could become the president of the United States.
Trump, of course, would likely take that as a compliment. He does not want to be liked by foreigners. He has said many times that his only concern are the people of the United States. Unfortunately, I believe I am as good as he is with detecting body language, and I don’t believe that for a minute. His only concerns is his own aggrandizement.
The U.S. has 4.4% of the world’s population, but it elects a single person that has the power to unleash most of the world’s military might. If that single person is as unstable as Trump exhibits he is every day, the world would be turned into a powder keg with a doofus wandering around it with the cigarette dangling out of his mouth.
Not a pretty picture.
