"Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President"

Never in my life did I expect to see a headline like this:
From the German News Magazine "Der Spiegel":
Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President
Trump as Nero: Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President - SPIEGEL ONLINE
I was lucky enough in my youth to spend 4 years serving in the United States Army in Europe- Germany, to be precise. It was a wonderful experience, and I got to learn a great deal about things European, how different cultures value different things, and how America was the shining light of Liberty to a great deal of the world.
So it pains me terribly to see headlines like that- Germany's premier news magazine, offering up a warning about the danger of the American President.
I continue to ask myself- where is the restraint on this guy? Why aren't the responsible republicans trying to educate this new President in the ways of world diplomacy?
The Presidency is NOT a dictatorship. And the skills, knowledge and ability to be a private sector small, closely held corporation are not the same skills needed to lead a Democracy.
So I am starting to get really, really worried about where this is all headed.
What do you think?
