German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave the commencement speech at Harvard University on Thursday, where she lashes out not-so-subtle page on President Trump.

With the help of an English translator, Merkel stressed the importance of “truthfulness in our attitude towards others and honest with ourselves.”

“What better place to start in order to do so, as here, to investigate, in this place, where so many young people come from all over the world, to learn, and to discuss the issues of our time, under the Maxim of “the truth,” said Merkel. “This requires us to describe the lie as truth and truth as lies.”

This sparked a round of applause and a standing ovation from the crowd.


Merkel called the negative impact of the “walls” and “ignorance and narrow-mindedness.”

“It requires us to accept, the gaps in our normality. One more thing, could stop dear graduates, you could prevent us to do? Once again, the answer is walls. Walls in our minds, walls of ignorance and narrow-mindedness,” said Merkel. “They exist between family members, as well as the various groups within the society: people of different skin colors, Nations and religions. I would love to see us these walls break down.”
