It was just financed by a foundation that was originally founded by Deutsche Post (The German equivalent of US Postal Service). Okay, they might have a reason to not like Trump :)
Deutsche Post's emblem is a trumpet.
A coincidence?

Not a trumpet. A horn

Posthorn. I think that was a pretty common symbol for the post service in Europe.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Forgive this ignorant African. I didn't have the same educational advantages as you did.

Playing this song on public television at least once a year is the one thing that has prevented Germany from starting another war.

County had 145 cases today. It's been like that since college started. And bars are still not full, so not that. Private parties.

A former White House aide who helped co-ordinate the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic has heavily criticised the president and said she plans to vote for Democrat Joe Biden.

Olivia Troye, a one-time aide to Vice President Mike Pence, said in a video released by the group Republican Voters Against Trump that the government knew by mid-February it was facing a pandemic.

"But the president didn't want to hear that because his biggest concern was that we were in an election year and how was this going to affect what he considered to be his record of success," she said.

The lifelong Republican, who served as a top organiser for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said Mr Trump had referred to the coronavirus as a hoax in the early stages.

"The truth is he doesn't actually care about anyone else but himself," she said.
