German Chancellor says she can’t count on President Trump and Prime Minister May
“We Europeans must take our fate into our own hands,” the German chancellor said in Munich on Sunday. “The times when we could depend on others are on the way out. I’ve experienced that in the last few days.”
Merkel said she realized at the G7 summit in Sicily last week that there’s a revolutionary bond between Donald “America First” Trump and Theresa “Brexit” May that Germany cannot be a part of. Trump has made no secret that he can’t stand Merkel, her open-border policy and her globalist position on trade.
“While Germany and Europe would strive to remain on good terms with America and Britain,” Merkel said, “we must fight for our own destiny.”
Merkel also bristled under Trump’s withering attack on Germany and other NATO countries for not paying their fare share to keep the treaty organization functioning, leaving the U.S. to bear the burden.
Merkel and the new French president Emmanuel Macron, on the other hand, get along great. They share the same views on mass immigration, international trade and climate control.
And neither of them is willing to tackle Islamic terrorism that has slaughtered hundreds of German and French citizens. Macron goes as far as saying terrorism is the new way of life and citizens had better get used it.
That weak-kneed resignation to such an evil reality is the exact opposite of Trump’s tough stand on immigration and his commitment to eradicating religious barbarism.
Incredibly, and tragically for Germany and Europe, current polls indicate that Merkel will be re-elected for a fourth term this autumn, continuing her disgraceful 12-year reign of power.
