“Trump is the forerunner of a new, authoritarian and chauvinist international movement. They stand for a return to the bad old times. In which women belonged in the kitchen or in the bed, gays belonged in jail and unions belong at the children’s table. And if you refuse to keep your mouth shut about it, you’ll be ripped apart in public.”

- Sigmar Gabriel, German Vice-Chancellor
