Augstein: "In the United States, the mask is in character against Trump"

The reader will love or hate him, indifferent Jan Fleischhauer is the least. One need only look at the comments to his columns, to get an impression of how much of what he writes, people moved. For 30 years he was at the MIRROR, at the beginning of August 2019, he joined as a columnist to FOCUS.
