From President Donald J. Trump: Thank you to the very brilliant Mathias Döpfner. Good news is, WE WON, Big.
The German media mogul who owns the news site Politico has come under fire on Twitter after a report cited emails he wrote hailing Donald Trump while “praying” that he gets re-elected as president.
Mathias Döpfner, the CEO of Berlin-based conglomerate Axel Springer, emailed his top lieutenants just weeks before Trump would go on to lose to Joe Biden in the November 2020 presidential elections.
“Do we all want to get together for an hour in the morning on November 3 and pray that Donald Trump will again become President of the United States of America?” Döpfner wrote in the email, which was first reported by the Washington Post.
In the email, Döpfner praised Trump for his policies as president as they relate to what he considers some of the most important issues of recent decades, including “defending the free democracies” against Russia and China, encouraging NATO allies to increase their defense spending, pursuing peace in the Middle East, and overhauling US tax laws.
“No American administration in the last 50 years has done more,” Döpfner wrote.
According to the Washington Post, Döpfner denied having ever written the email.
