Chronicle 2017 - Trump becomes the new US President

Even if not nearly as many people appeared on site as at Barack Obama to witness the inauguration of the 45th President Donald Trump, it still took place. Trump was sworn in on January 20 and was now sitting in the executive chair from which he intended to rule the world. One of his first acts was the decree of the US withdrawal from the TTP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, followed by the announcement of an actual building of the wall along the border with Mexico, for which the Mexicans would pay. Trump had thus conjured up the first diplomatic crisis, because the Mexican head of state Nieto had then canceled his visit to Washington. There had also been telephone conversations with Putin and Merkel, although the German Chancellor was not “amused” that Trump had imposed a complete entry ban on people from some Muslim countries. For his part, Donald Trump was not enthusiastic about Angela Merkel's refugee policy.

January 2017

Great Britain was busy with its exit from the European Union and meanwhile there were more and more layoffs in Turkey. The “dictator” Recep Tayyip Erdogan made it clear. He had issued a decree after ordering the dismissal of a total of 8,400 civil servants. These included around 2,700 police officers, 1,700 officials from the Ministry of Justice, eight members of the State Council, 800 employees from the Ministry of Health and hundreds of officials from other ministries and 630 university employees. Anyone who did not support Erdogan was "abolished" and Turks who were abroad had to expect that their citizenship would be revoked under certain conditions. In Germany, at the end of the month, the SPD party chairman Sigmar Gabriel submitted his candidacy for chancellor to the previous European politician Martin Schulz, who he said had more chances in the 2017 election. The SPD was quite pleased with the new impetus that Schulz brought with him.

The world was out of joint almost everywhere. In the Romanian capital Bucharest, more than 150,000 people demonstrated against the government under Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu, formed after the 2016 parliamentary elections, and the decree that guaranteed hundreds of officials accused of abuse of office from impunity. The number of people protesting had increased to 250,000 the following day. Another attack attempt had been made in Paris. A 29-year-old Egyptian attacked a patrolling soldier with a machete in the Carroussel du Louvre shopping gallery in front of the Louvre in Paris. Another soldier then opened fire and seriously injured the attacker. In the United States, the new Trump administration was the first to resign. Security adviser Michael T. Flynn had to resign because of his talks with Russia in December 2016 about a possible lifting of the US sanctions against Russia.

March 2017

The tensions between Turkey and Germany are fueled again on the Turkish side with very unsightly means. The speech was inter alia. of Nazi methods. The decisive factor was the city of Gaggenau in Baden-Württemberg, whose city administration had canceled the planned appearance of the Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag. It should take place in the local culture hall. The cancellation was justified with security concerns. Bozdag had described this rejection as a fascist approach. The resentment on both sides grew. Something similar could be heard from the Netherlands. There, the landing permit of the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu's plane had been withdrawn. A major advertising campaign was planned for the referendum in April, which was to take place in Rotterdam. Family minister Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya also had no chance. Ultimately, Turkey gave in and declared that it would forego any further campaign appearances by Turkish government politicians in Germany before the referendum.

April 2017

After a stranger drove a truck into a crowd in the center of the Swedish capital, killing and injuring several people, the horror of a terrorist attack was deep. In any case, the local authorities had spoken of a terrorist background. A few days later, the bomb attack by the team bus of the football club was all the more shocking Borussia Dortmund was perpetrated. The player Marc Batra and a police officer were injured. The quarter-final of the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League against AS Monaco was then canceled and repeated the following day. Borussio Dortmund lost 3-2 to the AS Monaco team. The perfidious attack had no terrorist background. It was simply about money, about stock market transactions. The perpetrator, 28-year-old Sergei W., was caught a few days later. He wanted to crash the BVB share price with three bombs and make a fortune.

France had chosen. On May 7th, the final decision was made in the runoff election. With around 66.1 percent, the French voted for the former Minister of Economic Affairs Emmanuel Macron (En marche!) As the new President of France in this round of the presidential election. His rival Marine Le Pen from the Front National, who was striving for a course hostile to Europe, only won 33.9 percent of the vote. In Germany, the election result was greeted with a sigh of relief. Meanwhile, the US president "trumped" around wildly. On May 9, he dismissed James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), with immediate effect and alleged recommendation by United States Attorney General Jeff Session. However, Trump had not silenced him with it. Comey had announced that he still wanted to testify in the Russia affair. Trump started out on a major trip abroad, his first.

In addition to several terrorist attacks in London and the major fire of the Grenfell Tower, the large-scale forest fires in the central Portuguese region of Pedrogao Grande were also the subject of the headlines. More than 60 people were killed in the fires in Portugal alone. It was still unclear what consequences the isolation would have for Qatar. In any case, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt had surprisingly isolated their neighboring state Qatar. The borders had been closed, diplomats withdrawn, and air and ship connections suspended. Qatar should have supported various Islamist terrorist groups. The reports that Qatar had supported terrorism also fueled the discussion about the 2022 World Cup, which should take place in Qatar. DFB President Reinhard Grindel said that "the football community around the world should generally agree that major tournaments cannot be played in countries that actively support terrorism".
