Die Tageszeitung, Jan. 17, 2016

I love Germany. I love Great Britain. I love Mexico. I love free trade.

I like Angela Merkel, but I don't know her.

I liked President Obama. He was very nice. He was very nice in personal conversations. Maybe not so nice for the rest.

NATO is obsolete. Apart from that, it's still very important to me.

You know, they all thought I was crazy.

I have tweeted a bit, yes.

I love the world
