Europe's bemusement at the rise of Donald Trump has switched to concern as his U.S. presidential campaign has gained ground in what observers said was a warning to traditional parties about ignoring populists. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier this week spoke about the "politics of fear" in the U.S. campaign in a thinly veiled reference to Trump and drew parallels to the rise of European demagogues.The French far-right party's cofounder Jean-Marie Le Pen last week gave his stamp of approval to Trump.Wednesday's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung ran the headline "The Nightmare Continues," while the weekly Der Spiegel said Trump was "the leader of an authoritarian movement full of hatred"."His America would be frightening," Der Spiegel said.Many commentators focused their indignation on Trump's comments about barring Muslims from entering the United States made just days after a couple believed to have been inspired by Daesh (ISIS) killed 14 people in California in December.
