Welcome to the completely fact and reality-free world of Armin Laschet, as he also wants to govern the federal government. This Laschet policy is killing people all over the world – especially in Canada. In North Rhine-Westphalia and all of Germany it is destroying tens of thousands of jobs and the economic basis of our state. “
