BERLIN (Reuters) - German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen said on German television on Wednesday that Republican Donald Trump's move toward an unexpected victory in the U.S. presidential election was a "huge shock".
She told broadcaster ARD: "I think Trump knows that this was not a vote for him but rather against Washington, against the establishment."
