The Chancellor also calls for action against right-wing extremism and protection democracy, condemning hateful ideologies and advocating for inclusivity.

Overall, Scholz’s Chancellor Talks event highlights his commitment to responsible spending, international cooperation, and social justice issues such as affordable housing and protecting democracy from hateful ideologies.
