During this discussion, Scholz emphasizes his support for fiscal responsibility even in times of crisis and reiterates his commitment to reforming the debt brake rule outlined in the Basic Law. However, he is firm in his belief that some form of fiscal restraint is necessary to prevent reckless spending.

Scholz also talks about the upcoming US election and expresses confidence in Joe Biden’s ability to stand up to Donald Trump. He reassures his audience that Germany is prepared for any potential changes in US policies, especially when it comes to NATO commitments. The Chancellor also defends Germany’s decision to provide Ukrainian war refugees with welfare benefits, citing the urgency of the situation in Ukraine.

In addition, Scholz highlights the importance of affordable housing and calls for new construction projects to address Germany’s housing shortage. He discusses how Germany’s government has been working on improving housing benefits for those in need and promoting social housing options for all citizens. Scholz also addresses issues related to combating right-wing extremism and protecting democracy, condemning hateful ideologies and advocating for inclusivity.

Overall, Scholz’s Chancellor Talks event in Brandenburg shows his commitment towards fiscal responsibility, international cooperation, social justice and addressing current issues that matter most to German citizens.
