President Obama Targets Donald Trump's Brand Of Politics In Germany

During a speech in Germany on Monday, President Obama seemed to indirectly go after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. He decided to comment on the brand of politics emerging in the U.S. and Europe that blames immigrants and minorities for economic problems. Obama said, “You see increasing intolerance in our politics. Loud voices get the most attention.”

Obama called this “a defining moment, what happens on this continent has consequences around the globe.” In addition, Obama is trying to soothe concerns of some world leaders who are worried about the rise of Trump. Before leaving on his six-day, three-country trip, the president told CBS News the “single most important question I’m asked these days from other world leaders is, ‘What’s going on with your elections?’"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in attendance at Monday’s speech. The president recognized issues with economic inequality and wage stagnation. He said, “These concerns and anxieties are real. They are legitimate and they cannot be ignored.” He added that they should not make scapegoats of "immigrants or Muslims."
