Trump tweets against Germany

Merkel was hosting a press conference with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi when she was asked whether Germany was looking towards Asia to develop relations, following her comments on Sunday that "Europe could no longer rely on the USA and Britain", reports Efe. And while German politicians sided with Merkel, Sigmar Gabriel signalled that it was time for cooler heads to prevail.

He said the "Chancellor represents all of us at summits like these".

Trump's tweet underscored the deterioration of links with a key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, yet his timing also highlighted Germany's web of relations with worldwide partners who broadly share Merkel's free-trade outlook and conviction on combating climate change.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel (L) sits next to Tunisia's President Beji Caid Essebsi (C) and speaks to President Donald Trump (R) as they attend a G7 expanded session during the G7 Summit in Taormina, Sicily, Italy.

Referring to the direction of new leadership in the US and Great Britain, Merkel told her citizens that "Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands".

Amid tensions between President Trump and European leaders, Mr. Trump is also telling people close to him that the US will withdraw from the historic Paris climate agreement, which which former President Obama helped negotiate and 195 countries signed. "We don't want to build a Europe against America, but America is forcing Europe to unify". That would nearly double the current budget - but it would still be dwarfed by the $664 billion the United States spends every year.

Perhaps, but I very much doubt it.

The White House also insisted that Merkel's view of a more strategically independent Europe was not incompatible with Trump's demand for more European defence spending. She was merely stating what she sees as reality, with Europe taking the lead during the Ukraine conflict and the refugee crisis, the official said.

Trump also bashed the US news media, tweeting Tuesday morning that "Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S." for the media's coverage of the scandal around possible nefarious ties between his associates and Russian officials, which he dismissed as a "lame excuse" by Democrats for losing the 2016 presidential election.

"You have to look at the way Mr. Trump and many people in his administration look at foreign policy".

Newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel - who was a close collaborator with Trump's predecessor Barack Obama - are two of those allies on whom Trump's visit seems to have left an impression.

The relationship between the world's major powers is being unpredictably transformed.

"This time, it is about the fundamentals of European security which Iraq was not about", said Jan Techau of the American Academy in Berlin, adding that Trump had created a great sense of "nervousness and uncertainty" in Europe.

The danger some see is that, if the two powers at the foundation of a West-inspired worldwide order pull back from principles to a transactional relationship, other forces with other values are going to fill the void. Frau Merkel usually means what Frau Merkel says. "We're going to find that the West is weaker and leaving behind new vacuums if the United States withdraws and Europe goes it alone".
