Schäuble at Maischberger: "Schröder's behavior is a disgrace"

Former Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble sharply criticizes ex-Chancellor Schröder at Maischberger. His behavior is not a glorification sheet for Germany. He finds words of praise for the current chancellor.

The former Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble looked back on his time as a politician with Maischberger on ARD. The CDU politician, who has been a member of the Bundestag for almost fifty years, also sharply criticized the behavior of former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. "Actually, I almost feel sorry for him," said Schäuble, referring to the Social Democrat. He finds it shabby that a former Federal Chancellor has entered the service of a foreign company. "You don't do that if you were Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany," said Schäuble. "His behavior is a disgrace in itself and not a glorification for Germany."

Schäuble advocated Ukraine's membership of the European Union. However, he called for the transformation of the EU. "The EU must become much more efficient and capable of acting in certain areas," says Schäuble. If a country like Ukraine has opted for democracy and the rule of law and wants to belong to a community of democracy in Europe, this is not aggression against Russia. According to the politician, Ukraine does not threaten Russia. "What Russian President Putin sees as a threat is that free democracies based on the rule of law are apparently more attractive in his neighborhood."

Schäuble also praised Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Many would not have believed him capable of announcing a turning point three days after the start of the war in Ukraine. Opposition leader Friedrich Merz offered his support to Scholz. "Despite all the political differences that must exist in a democracy, there is one thing in common on the basic issues. We also need them in view of this great danger. We have to overcome this dramatically difficult situation together as best we can," demanded Schäuble. The federal government must consistently implement what it has announced. "And if they let up, there will be pressure from the opposition again," announced Schäuble.
