He said he had directed government ministries to investigate what help Germany could offer to the United States if requested.
“The citizens of the United States should know that in such a situation, Germany is firmly at their side and will do everything it can to organise whatever help we can provide as far as it is desired,” he said.
“I’m thinking here of water treatment plants or mobile accommodation, the kinds of things that are needed in such a devastating situation.”
Our government’s response? Fuck you.
