Siemens chief executive Joe Kaeser while stressing his company’s job creation, investments in the US, and praising immigration, criticised new US President Donald Trump for his noisy style, attacks on the press, and his plan to build a wall on the Mexican border.

“I must say, we hear noise or tones which really do not tally with our perception of this country,” Kaeser said at a press conference on company earnings, adding that he has lived five years in the US and felt very much welcome there.
