I am sorry I do not speak your beautiful language....

I am sorry my president is such a douchebag. He lost the election by 3 million votes, of which I’m sure Germany is aware.

Please do not think for a moment that Donald Trump represents the views of the majority of Americans. He does not. Unlike you, Donald Trump has no leadership skills, and while I am apologizing for not speaking your language, my president cannot even speak his.

Thank you, Ma’am, for behaving as a world leader should. My 10 year-old son made it clear to me he will be watching you, Macron and Trudeau as role models. Sadly, the U.S. president would rather behave like a 12 year-old child than a leader.
