SRF show seeks American Trump Fan to travel to Davos

The SRF show "Reporter" is potentially planning a show on Trump's arrival in Switzerland, where 3-4 people will be showcased. As one of the stories, they'd like a Trump supporter, ideally an American, living here, who can speak german well, who would be willing to travel with them to Davos on the 25th to try and get a photo with him or something of that sort. While I imagine there will be some critical questions, the treatment will be fair and the person will have ample time to explain the appeal of Trump. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

No link yet, it's still in the planning stages, they're not sure if it'll happen yet.


But to see examples of the show, here you go:

You'd be a candidate too, no?

Plus I don't want to go to WEF!

Anyway, just because I don't hate Trump doesn't mean that I'm a fan, rather that I just accept the reality that he is the least of all evils.

Ben Carson.
Ted Bundy Cruz.

Within the "official" list of aspirants alone, there were more evil contenders. Or at least, people who could have done even more damage to the USA and the world.

Re: SRF show seeks American Trump Fan to travel to Davos

Just ask one of the many SVP supporters. They love Trump. "Trump gefällt mir" they always tell me. I tell them I'm not an American, I'm a Californian. Huuuge difference, bigger than 'Gina.

Re: SRF show seeks American Trump Fan to travel to Davos

Nope, not a trap, it's easy enough to find people that dislike Trump and plenty of US expats will likely head to Davos to protest or give him the finger or whatever, and in the interest of balance they'd like to have the opposite as well, but it's proving quite difficult to find a an Expat US Trump supporter, at least someone willing to open up about it. All the Trump supporters I personally know are in the U.S., and no one I've asked so far actually knows a real live American Trump supporter who lives here.

I know, Swiss Trump supporters are easy enough, but they'd ideally like an American that speaks German.

It's a trap in the sense that it might fire back to have your face over the SRF openly support a president that goes to bed at 18.30 with a cheeseburger...

Honestly, I'd volunteer for the fun of it and might be a good enough actor to make people believe that I believe what I am saying on camera... but I am not American.

I'll tell you what, I'll lend you some sweatpants and a MAGA hat, and you have a week to work on the accent.

I'll chew on some cold cheese fondue, that should do the trick.
