Reaction to the environmental catastrophe: At 7:55 p.m., NRW Prime Minister Armin Laschet gave a five-minute televised address on WDR.

Due to the severe weather disaster after heavy rains in western Germany, the Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Armin Laschet (60, CDU), will address the citizens in a five-minute address on Sunday, July 18, at 7:55 p.m. The speech of the Chancellor candidate was recorded in advance and will then be shown on WDR television before the “Tagesschau”.

Laschet is currently on everyone’s lips because he made a faux pas while visiting the disaster areas. While Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier (65, SPD) gave a short and serious address to the press, Laschet could be seen in the background smiling and smiling. After massive criticism, apologized Armin Laschet via Twitter for his behavior.
