Germany's AfD Criticizes EU’s 'Export Hurdles', Supports Trump's Metal Tariffs

US President Donald Trump’s recent imposition of trade protectionist measures – specifically tariffs on steel and aluminum imports – have drawn widespread criticism, particularly from China and the European Union. Meanwhile, Germany’s Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) party has taken a more understanding and supportive stance.

Kay Gottschalk, a member of the German Bundestag, who also serves as the AfD party’s deputy spokesman, defended Trump’s import tariffs, while describing his strategy as "clever."

"The EU Commission is shouting loudly because Trump charges punitive tariffs. It raises itself as the grail-keeper of free world trade, defending indirectly the abominable consequences of globalization: pollution, wage dumping and tax avoidance of large corporations. Trump's clever strategy is obvious. He destroys existing contracts so that he can replace them with new and better ones," Mr. Gottschalk was quoted as saying by an official AfD press release.
