Today on The Day, the political party winning votes with every new terror alert - the Alternative for Germany (AfD). But what kind of alternative? DW's Brent Goff puts that question to one of the party's leaders, Alexander Gauland.
Alexander Gauland is one of two leaders of the far-right, nationalist AfD party - and he's known for his controversial, headline-grabbing statements.
Polls say that migrants aren't what Germans are most concerned about. So why do the media and politicians push the topic so much? Is the AfD profiting from their mistakes? DW's Jefferson Chase takes a self-critical look.
The co-chairman of Germany's far-right AfD could face legal action for appearing to trivialize the Nazi era. A complaint has been filed with a public prosecutor, accusing Alexander Gauland of inciting hatred.
President Steinmeier accused the AfD of "sowing hatred" after downplaying the importance of the Nazi era. AfD leader Alexander Gauland referred to the Nazi era as "bird shit" in an otherwise illustrious history.
