Donald Trump’s policy speech on Wed had left many media commentators scraping their heads.
Crazy, strange & unsteady are a couple of adjectives used as the pundits try to work out what a Donald Trump policy would possibly look like, although one Israeli newspaper looks confident.
Several German commentators admit to being flummoxed by the speech. “It’s not very simple to follow him,” writes Der Spiegel’s Washington correspondent, Veit medick.
The candidate’s comments can “hardly be referred to as a coherent plan,” he added.
Die Welt’s Clemens Wergin sees Mr. Donald Trump as a security risk, saying that his speech confirmed several experts’ view that “we are handling an unsteady character”.
France’s business daily Les Echos asks whether or not the speech is “a come back to isolationism”, reporting that Mr. Donald Trump needs to point the United States in “a less interventionist direction”.
The speech conjointly makes the front page of the Spanish daily, El Pais.
Washington correspondent marc Bassets says Mr Trump’s policy doctrine may be summed up as a mixture of “isolationism, realpolitik and militarism”.
Two heavyweight United States of America papers are unaffected with the speech, with The new york Times headlining its critical editorial: “Donald Trump’s Strange world view.”
It argues that he “did not exhibit abundant grasp of the complexness of the globe, understanding of the balance or exercise of power, or perhaps a careful reading of history.”
In the Washington Post, Danu Milbank writes regarding “Trump’s crazy attempt to not sound crazy”.
“Trump failed to offer a lot of detail on how he would ‘bring peace to the planet,’ however he gave strongman guarantees that everything would be fine”, he laments.
“Perhaps the foremost formidable promise Trump had made was his determination to be erratic”, he continues.
“On this vow, Donald Trump has already made good – and that is simply the problem.”
