Trump's Kiss. Merkel: the EU can no longer rely only on the US

31
Angela Merkel during a joint press conference with Donald Trump said that the time of the "post-war order" had passed. According to the German Chancellor, for more than 70 years, European countries, including Germany, "relied on the all-powerful partner represented by the United States." Merkel said that now European countries need to take more responsibility, including responsibility for their own security.


Angela Merkel:
We must make our own, greater contribution. It should grow from year to year. We should not rely on someone who comes and will save us if conflicts occur at our doors. Germany must learn to play its own role. We are a big and powerful country, but we just have to learn how to do it.


When Merkel spoke about relations with NATO, everything fell into place. Merkel’s statements were mainly made in response to Trump’s claims that Berlin was not sufficiently financing NATO programs. Recall that according to the NATO charter, states must contribute to the consolidated budget of the military bloc on 2% of GDP. Germany recently decided to increase spending - up to 1,3% of GDP. In the US, they believe that this is not enough, but they note that they approve the first step.

Trump's Kiss. Merkel: the EU can no longer rely only on the US


Recall also that Germany refused to participate in the operation to attack Syria. In this regard, Merkel clearly received a kind of scolding from an American partner, who demanded that she take more responsibility, including finance.

Trump gives European "friends" to understand that they themselves have to pay for their safety if they don’t want the "unpleasant consequences" of their harshness.

Against this background, it became known that Trump did not succeed in convincing Merkel that it was necessary to terminate the nuclear agreement with Iran. In Berlin, they believe that such a move could lead to dire consequences for at least the Middle East.

    Germany must learn to play its own role.

    While in power such as Merkel, Germany, and indeed the EU may not dream about it. All these statements are just bravado empty. Merkel, Macron is a puppet who does not care about his people.

          Moreover, she came with an understanding of the need for self-defense. And this is the first step towards sovereignty. hi

            Yes, you need to get rid of dandruff, you have already beaten up all the advertising with this fact, it’s time already at the genetic level to feel that they’re spread rot, especially Merkel, there’s nothing to lose, at least it’s nice to close the door (well, not to slam) ...

      The time of revelation has come. Now from Merkel.
      One thing is not clear - that Mr. Trump answered Frau Merkel to the question about German companies falling under anti-Russian sanctions ..... what

          Pasha
          hi
          Who will listen to this Europe? The United States leads its game, China - its own. Germany cannot afford to increase the costs of armament and army maintenance. And here - protective duties on metal and aluminum and a list of anti-Russian sanctions, which Trump should announce no earlier than May 1.
          Merkel said directly that she does not like Russia, but I want to trade with her. A current macron can kiss everyone in a row (well, a Frenchman - what can you do?), In the hope that trouble will pass over the French economy.
          Britain has a Brexit payout on its nose.
          China calls with a loud voice to develop cooperation with Russia in all areas.
          I think that responsible people from China will come to Russia to celebrate the Victory Day 9 on May to sign the relevant documents.
          And in Europe, the United States delivered the ultimatum "No independence - neither in the economy, nor in politics."
          European riot will be crushed by Washington with all severity ...

            I thought about it, but I'm not so sure. We will see how they say. I have no doubt about one thing: in the language of Shakespeare, things will never be the same again (nothing will be as before).

              Pasha ... Yes, look at this political elite of the gay people - in no European country that is part of the G7, there is not a single independent politician who upholds at least a drop of sanity on the issue of independence and independence. And all those applying for the post of leader, and leading an independent line, are "felled" in full.
              Why did Strauss-Kahn become an outcast? And on Le Pen, Jean-Marie started a business?
              Who is sent in parcels from the USA to the Baltic states?
              The EU is a trap. Entrance - 1 Euro. Exit - 1 lard greens + discrediting the leader. At one time, the case at Berlusconi was launched precisely for this. And the fact that the current British Prime Minister during his tenure as Minister of the Interior, let go of the scandals of pedophilia on the part of both the political establishment and members of Parliament - this does not bother anyone. T. Blair apologized for the "mistake". But was he judged for the meaningless deaths of Aglitz warriors in Iraq?
              Pasha .... Everything is strict there. Like in Guantanamo ...

                If not tougher. I will leave pseudo-independence of the EU countries without comment at all - and so everything is clear and understandable to thinking people.

      Merkel just took this step towards independence, defending Nord Stream - 2.

        Merkel took an even greater step not wanting to disgrace in Syria. Here, of course, it is necessary without illusions. But these steps Frau Merkel in Russia could not help but notice!

    Merkel said that now European countries need to take more responsibility, including responsibility for their own security.

    Come on? Has ripened. Further development - refusal from the presence of military bases? But what about the missile defense system, so fostered with such difficulty in the EU? IMHO - the statement of the Angels has no justification. They won’t go anywhere, nor will the lettuce, and even make money pay.

    The EU can only dream of independence so that Merkel does not speak. Today, most are ready to lie under the United States and not rock the boat. And to allocate money for parallel structures (European security) desires only in words. And to whom to allocate except Germany, France, Italy?

    Puppet Theater, here is your EU .... puppeteers in the USA. NATO understands perfectly well that they have long been only big and strong on paper, and the United States still plays the first violin - this is the military stronghold of the West in the modern world.

    Merkelina is right in what she said. Earlier, under Obama, I couldn’t say this, Trump helped with his anti-globalization policy, which sent an established peace to the US under the umbrella of the US, Trump distorted economic trade relations, introducing huge duties for the import of metal into the USA, including and from the European Union, Trump's new sanctions against Russia undermine the entire German economy. Now Merkel wondered what to do.
