Germany's ZDF slams Trump as dangerous

In a commentary slot on Germany's ZDF station last evening, Elmar Thevessen, a senior journalist with the station criticised the behaviour of President Donald Trump at the G7 summit in Sicily.

In his hard-hitting criticism of Trump he accused him of being a narcissist, insulting, selfish, impatient and dangerous for the world. He also was most critical of Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia and the multi-billion dollar deal the US president signed with the Saudi government.

No punches pulled and a surprisingly explicit attack for any German commentator to make against a sitting US president.

ZDF and ARD are public service television stations funded by tv licence in Germany.
