Deutschland ist nicht darauf eingestellt, vier weitere Jahre mit #Trump zu arbeiten. Ein zweiter Wahlsieg würde uns fundamental fordern, auf eine Weise auf die wir noch nicht vorbereitet sind. #Election2020 #ElectionNight

Germany was not in the mood to work with Trump for another four years. His second victory will be a fundamental challenge for us, for which we are not ready.
Many were counting on Biden’s clear victory. Polls and widespread mobilization of voters spoke about this. But now this scenario is no longer relevant. The odds are 50 to 50. This is unexpected.
Whoever becomes president, the main themes in transatlantic relations will remain the same as expectations from Germany. However, communication with President Biden would be different – respectful and with the understanding that we need each other.
These elections are so important for us Europeans because, on a global scale, little is possible without the United States. In addressing all major global issues, the United States is indispensable. The presence or absence of constructive US assistance is fundamental.US intelligence agencies did not record hacker attacks on election day
