The German establishment is alarmed that Donald Trump’s “America first” policy could plunge the world economy into the kind of protectionism and trade war witnessed during the 1930s. At that time, pervasive economic nationalism triggered an economic and social catastrophe which bore significant responsibility for the rise of the Nazis and the outbreak of World War II: here.

Election of Donald Trump foreshadows trade war in Asia: here.

The Globe and Mail, Canada’s so-called newspaper of record and the traditional mouthpiece of the Toronto-based financial elite, has declared that Canada must be inside US president-elect Donald Trump’s “walls”: here.
