London - The CEO of German industrial giant Siemens says that President Donald Trump is becoming a symbol of intolerance following his attacks on four female members of Congress. "I find it depressing that the most important political office in the world is turning into the face of racism and exclusion," Joe Kaeser said Saturday on Twitter. Kaeser's remarks are the most prominent criticism from the business world in reaction to Trump's rally last week in North Carolina. The US president attacked Somali-born Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar and the crowd chanted "Send her back! Send her back!"


You know, if I were the CEO of the company who supplied the Nazis with many of the killing machines of the Holocaust, I'd keep my mouth shut. And notice when leftist say racist things, if they are reported it's "allegedly racist." If it's Trump, they are judged "racist." Well, as we say about liberals -- if they didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

The "Germans" killed a lot of people during WW I and WW II. I think their credibility is pretty much shot at this point and they are to be disregarded when it comes to dealing with minorities. They hardly need a reminder.

I am sick of hearing aspersions on the USA from foreigners. Why should any American give a rats buttocks about their views? Especially some German whose country the USA rebuilt after summarily defeating it in WWII and whose country now is overrun with the 7th century Satanic blood cult “ refugees”.

Keep in mind that Germany gets its impression of the USA from CNN International. This CEO should be smart enough to see the distortions, lies, and bias. Apparently he isn't.

So Joey, do you know what Trump said and if so where do you find race to have entered the equation? Do you accept Trump racism as fact because our left says so, or do you have some criteria that you have thought out and believe in and evidence of Trump's qualification for the label? You know, judging people to be unworthy of association just because of a political expediency is kind of a German thing. What is happening to the conservatives, successful middle class in particular has a few parallels to the Jews in Germany and Kulaks in Russia. I hope you are proud of yourself for having something in common with the most evil despots to have ever trod upon planet earth. And the Pferd you rode in on.

No offense meant to any other posters, but don't be too quick to judge modern German's for the crimes of the Nazi's. While the guy is clearly an idiot for thinking Trump is racist, I'm a Southerner and I get pretty irritated when people assume I'm racist because of my accent or simply because I live in the former Confederacy. No man is guilty because of what his father did. If you think differently, then you might have a hard time arguing against slave reparations.

Not condoning the CEOs comments but Siemens has a huge presence within the US in many major industries, including aerospace, transportation, materials movement, health care, and defense. They manufacture a lot of products here in the US and even played an integral technological role in the Apollo 11 mission. Siemens USA does over $5.5 B in annual exports and employs over 50k in the US. They are more than simply a German interest but their CEO ought not to be bad mouthing our president, taking the democrats/media narrative at face value.

Last November, Disney broke the Internet with its teaser trailer for “The Lion King.” This 93-second video gave millions of people chills by faithfully re-creating key moments from the original film’s beloved opening number. But as nostalgic as “Circle of Life” may make us feel, this bombastic scene is also a painful reminder of the film’s ideological agenda: It introduces us to a society where the weak have learned to worship at the feet of the strong.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17 after they subpoenaed the special counsel Tuesday, according to the committees' chairmen, Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Congressional Democrats have fought to get access to Mueller and his unredacted report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether President Trump obstructed justice. Weeks of negotiations between House Democrats and the Justice Department ultimately ended with the subpoena. Fox News has learned Mueller would appear only under a subpoena, which has been described as a "friendly" subpoena, one that in essence had been planned.

At a Judiciary Committee hearing on July 12, Hank said that he has heard more and more Republicans calling the former special counsel “[Mew-ler],” instead of “[Muller].” “I’ve heard more and more Republicans starting to pronounce Director Mueller’s name as ‘[Mew-ler].'” I’ve been hearing that over the past few weeks. Is that some kind of Republican attempt to besmirch Director Mueller?” Johnson asked.

There are currently no nationwide demographic trends that “favor Republicans” in future elections, Axios reports.The nation’s shifting demography — spurred primarily from mass legal immigration where more than 1.2 million foreign nationals are added to the U.S. population every year — is set to make it increasingly difficult for Republican candidates to win statewide and national elections, Axios’s Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen note: The single biggest threat to Republicans’ long-term viability is demographics.

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday warned that an economic crash was coming and said she had a plan to stop it. Pointing to high debt and a sagging manufacturing sector, Ms. Warren said the economy teeters on the edge of disaster. “The country’s economic foundation is fragile. A single shock could bring it all down. And the Trump administration’s reckless behavior is increasing the odds of just such a shock,” the Massachusetts Democrat wrote in an op-ed in Medium. The alarm took a swipe at the strong economy that is President Trump’s chief argument for reelection. It also highlighted Ms. Warren’s agenda of wealth redistribution.
