Trump’s Candidacy Raises Concerns Around The Globe

Other countries reportedly are worried about the possibility of Donald Trump becoming the next president of the United States.

Diplomats representing Europe, the Middle East, Central and South America, and Asia have told three U.S. officials they object to Trump’s incendiary remarks about Muslims, illegal immigration and other issues, according to Reuters.

“As the rhetoric has continued, and in some cases amped up, so, too, have concerns by certain leaders around the world,” one American government source told the news site. “The responses have ranged from amusement to befuddlement to curiosity. In some cases, we’ve heard expressions of alarm, but those have been more in response to the anti-immigrant and anti-refugee sentiment, as well as the general sense of xenophobia.”

India, South Korea, Japan and Mexico apparently are among the nations that have expressed fears about Trump in private conversations. Diplomats from England, Mexico, France and Canada are speaking out publicly against the billionaire businessman.

On Sunday, Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel of Germany alleged that he is “a threat to peace and prosperity.” Mexican government spokeswoman Claudia Ruiz Massieu recently called Trump “ignorant and racist.” She ridiculed his pledge to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border as an “absurd” idea.

The U.S. officials pointed out that foreign diplomats rarely get involved in American politics by slamming candidates with whom they might have to negotiate in the future. Trump’s campaign declined to respond to the criticism.
