Chancellor Scholz sharply criticizes the AfD and describes their policies as a threat to German prosperity.
Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) has attacked the AfD and accused it of “willful destruction of wealth”. “The vast majority of citizens know that the self-proclaimed alternative is actually a demolition command,” said Scholz in the general debate on the budget in the Bundestag. “A demolition squad for our country.”
The AfD wants the European Union to be dismantled, even though prosperity in Germany is very closely linked to the EU. On the other hand, his claim as Chancellor was to provide orientation and to make “courageous compromises” and “hands-on work for our country,” said Scholz. “This is how we counteract those who want to make political profit from relegation scenarios and scaremongering.” This is also his claim on the governing parties, “who have argued too much in the past few months,” said Scholz, referring to the sometimes violent clashes in the traffic light coalition.
