Today I was reminded of a fun Swedish word. A very contemporary one.
The Swedish word I’m referring to is ‘trumpen’. Contemporary for obvious reasons, the word is an adjective and translates as the following:
Appropriate, isn’t it? Shame it doesn’t also mean misguided, arrogant and narcissistic.

Since 1994, I've been watching the Swedes. Not in a creepy, obsessive way, but like an adventurer in unknown territory who carefully observes his surroundings.
I run a training company with my American business partner in Stockholm. We hold seminars and workshops in Cultural Awareness and Communication.

Why not take the word in the american vocubulary?
When referring to Trump in a demeaning way, we often say Trumpen (the Trump).
