This is one of those YouGov surveys, so take it with a grain of salt, but we don’t doubt the results. The Jerusalem Post reports that around 2,000 Germans were asked which world leader poses the greatest threat: America’s Donald Trump, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, or Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Forty-one percent of Germans picked Trump as the biggest threat to the world.

The Jerusalem Post put the results into perspective:
The results were that 41% chose Trump as the greatest threat to the world today. More than leaders who starve their own people as in North Korea [17%], more than nations that shoot their own people in the head and legs during protests [8%] and more than countries that take away the children of gay couples away from them [8%], as DW reported is the case in Russia.
But orange man bad, even in Germany.
The Germans, well, they know everything about threats…..

Putting the iron in irony – Germany.

To have Germany lecture us on world chaos is a little ironic

Ok, I have to admit that I love Germany. The German people are awesome and their culture is awesome and their history is fascinating. Huge Germany fan.
That said, they really don’t need to be lecturing ANYONE else about creating world chaos. Like, ever. https://t.co/u0CgQVU9tV

Asking Germans about the secret of world peace is like asking bedbugs the secret of a sound night’s sleep. Having initiated two world wars, their silence would be most appropriate.

German women, especially in Berlin, rebuilt that country post WWII. Most of the men with testosterone were killed. No wonder that their current leader is Merkel and Trump alarms them.

To paraphrase the biting sarcasm of the Israeli psychoanalyst Zvi Rex, the Germans will never forgive the Americans for liberating them from the Hitler movement.

I believe they said the same thing about Reagan and the Bushes too

Germans are never a problem as long as they stick to beer and dogs.
When they branch out? Problems.

Their history is a lot more than fascinating. I know because my grandparents left Germany with my dad as a baby in 1929

Wonder who they would've said in 1939…

Yes…let us let the Germans decide who and who isn’t a threat to the world since they’re historically good at it

Germans should not be given the option of answering this question throughout eternity.

I guess since the President asked them to contribute their fare share for NATO that makes him a threat.

Donald Trump is the greatest threat to globalism. I agree.

I would have said Angela Merkel

I would have said David Hasselhoff.
