Trump is a criminal, a political pyromaniac who should be sent to criminal court. He's a person who was elected democratically but who isn't interested in democracy in the slightest. — Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn

Luxembourg calls Trump a 'criminal' and 'political pyromaniac who should be sent to criminal court'
  • Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn did not hold back in his criticism of President Donald Trump over the Capitol siege.
  • "Trump is a criminal, a political pyromaniac who should be sent to criminal court. He's a person who was elected democratically but who isn't interested in democracy in the slightest," Asselborn said last Thursday in an interview with RTL Radio.
  • Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday cancelled at the last-minute a trip to Europe, including Luxembourg, after it became clear US allies didn't want him there following the Capitol siege.
"Trump is a criminal, a political pyromaniac who should be sent to criminal court. He's a person who was elected democratically but who isn't interested in democracy in the slightest," Asselborn said in the interview with RTL Radio, per France 24 reporter Philip Crowther. "The 6th of January 2021 was a 9/11 attack on democracy itself, and Trump was the one who egged it on."

"The people who are truly responsible are Trump and members of the GOP. People like Ted Cruz and other elected Republicans are responsible because they acted like Trump's poodles," Asselborn added.
