Gerhard Schröder, Germany’s Chancellor jokes with Cherno Jobatey
TV-Moderator Cherno Jobatey asks Chancellor Gerhard Schröder how he actually came up with his legendary “Basta-Politik” (roughly translating as “ I’ve had it. I put my foot down”). The Gerhard Schröder laughs and says he learnt that in his time as a young socialist leader. When he became Prime Minister of Lower Saxony that “Basta” helped him too. The chancellor continues to poke some fun that even a TV-Moderator like Cherno Jobatey might like a “Basta” every now and then. Even Hollywood-directors have something similar, called “final cut”, Chancellor Gerhard Schröder adds.
