yes, this is called Freedom of Speech and/or Freedom of the Press...

Trump is one of the most obscene politicians the US has ever seen... why treat him with any respect when he clearly has none for anyone else?

Interestingly, some people only realize when something is not classy in selected cases...

i know this is the German thread and not American, but maybe this comment is still appropriate. With the US (temporarily) removing itself as a leader on the world stage, it's a huge opportunity for other countries to take over that role. Germany seems like a clear leader at the moment, alongside France, and China is making big waves as well. I'm interested how this will evolve over the next 5, 10, 20 years, and can't wait the shock when Americans discover someday that other countries don't really care about them as much as they used to...

Correct me if I'm wrong here: according to everything you've written on this forum, one would think they already have?!

okay, back in the real world.... they are influential but mostly with the USA... as I said before, I see US influence declining, at least temporarily... probably also makes Israel less influential

It's always a problem when a "leader's" ego is five billion times the size of his brain... Strike that, his ego is wayy bigger, and oh my god what a moron

Thing is: when there are some who actually have a vision and foresight, they're treated with hostility...

Israel will play a role... There's others though...

with everything that's going on, my wife and I are having a hard time deciding what's next. she'll be finishing her Bachelors degree in December and will study for a PhD. We thought that we would stay in the US for that, maybe moving to California or the Northeast... but now we're not so sure. Maybe now is the right time to move back to Germany? She could study for a PhD there as well... the only thing is that I need to keep working on improving my German...

Well, what is "the right time" anyway?

She's a native speaker of German right?

What do you do? There's tons of companies where English is mandatory for at least email conduct anyways...
Of course you'd have to improve for/in everyday life... But as a teacher of language my personal opinion is that -especially with a solid basis (which I assume you have) there's nothing better than exposure to the target language to quickly get proficient in it...

it's definitely a balancing act ;) she is native German, yes, from Bayern... but at the same time, her specialty is English linguistics, so you can see why it's a benefit to study in the US :-/ of course, there are also great linguistics programs in Deutschland as well (mostly in/around Berlin).

I work in real estate - new development mostly, but also some asset management. I actually worked for an American company in Munich for a year or so, but it became quickly apparent that my lack of fluency in German was a problem... real estate is very language-dependent :-/

i absolutely agree with you about immersion learning. i took German for 4 years in high school and college, but it never stuck... living 2 years in Munich made a huge difference. i would consider myself conversational, and if i put in more effort i could quickly become business proficient. still, its been a struggle since my brain is not wired for languages :D

i think you would have interesting conversations with my wife - both of you specializing in languages =D>

but yeah, we are DEFINITELY moving back to Deutschland... the question is just "when" ;)

Oh, she's one of those...

Well, if you are serious about it, there's probably a few opportunities over there as well...

Man, I'm dying to go back to the US... But I'm making a statement here, "let 'em feel how dumb this decision was" - one less big-spending tourist

I personally wouldn't like it if Germany or any other European country became the so called leader of the free world in the current European political climate. It risks destabilising the balance of power in the EU, in my opinion.

I'm part of the minority who is all for more cooperation and more federalism though, so if Europe as a whole were to step in, why not? Can't do worse than Trump.
