German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said that US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump along with other right-wing populist politicians poses a threat to peace, social cohesion.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump along with other right-wing populist politicians poses a threat to peace, social cohesion, as well as economic development, German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said in an interview published Sunday.

"Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen or Geert Wilders [the leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom] — all these right-wing populists are not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also for the economic development," Gabriel told the Welt an Sonntag.

According to Gabriel, right-wing populists promise their followers "a fairytale world," where the economy develops only within the limits of their own nation.

"But never in the history economies could develop into a self-imposed isolation," Gabriel added.

Trump opposes international trade agreements that have been heavily promoted by the White House, because they ship jobs overseas and harm the US working and middle class.

Trump has also often said that high tariffs targeting imports from countries with huge trade shortfalls such as China and Mexico would force companies to move production to the United States and prevent US companies from moving overseas.

At the moment, Trump is the Republicans' frontrunner in the US presidential race.

    I do understand Gabriel, he fears People going after hom and his Party SPD.
    The other big guy in the SPD, Steinmeier, also fears Trump.
    SPD is an aging Party and is very fast going down in votes.
    He called demonstrating People the "Pack"!!

    That paarty was once founded by workers, but ripped their own voters off by cutting down on social services. Now they are going for some migrants votes hoping those can be fooled easier.

    Go, Afd, go! Kick those corrupt SPD bastards out of their offices!

    Donald Trump is a centrist, not "right-wing".
    And he has built up a large successful company.
    People who are economic threats are the idiots like this Vice Chancellor.
