Trump taking office spells end to world order of 20th century – German FM Steinmeier

from RT:

The world order of the 20th century “is over for good” now that Donald Trump has taken office, while times of uncertainty and turbulence lie ahead, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in an op-ed for Bild magazine.

“As always when power changes hands, there are uncertainties, doubts and questions about the course the new leadership will take,” Steinmeier wrote in an opinion piece for Bild’s Sunday edition. 

But in these times of a new global disorder it is about more, and there is a lot at stake today – with the election of Donald Trump the old world of the 20th century is over for good,” Steinmeier stated. The op-ed comes shortly after Trump was sworn in as 45th US president. 

Steinmeier wrote that he is committed to Berlin’s vision regarding free trade, fighting extremism and terrorism, as well as maintaining trust in transatlantic relations, but added that “turbulent times” lie ahead.

The 60-year-old Social Democrat is highly respected at in Germany where he is regarded as a balanced and open-minded politician. In November last year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that her ruling coalition will back Steinmeier as Germany’s president.

The announcement effectively paves the way for Steinmeier to be elected by the Federal Convention – which includes members of the Bundestag and the same number of delegates from parliaments of German states – on February 12 to the largely ceremonial post now held by Joachim Gauck.
