Merkel Slams Trump, Sides With ‘Attacked’ Congresswomen

Merkel Slams Trump, Sides With ‘Attacked’ Congresswomen

Chancellor Merkel: I “feel solidarity toward the attacked women.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has attacked U.S. President Donald Trump and sided with the “attacked” congresswomen in his ongoing spat with the four progressive lawmakers. “I firmly distance myself from it and feel solidarity toward the attacked women,” Merkel said at a press conference on Friday, referring to President’s remarks.

Last Sunday, President Trump tweeted telling progressive lawmakers who “came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” to go back to where they came from to fix the problems there, and then “come back and show us how it’s done.”  The remarks triggered a media feeding frenzy and a wave of condemnation from political adversaries at home.

Chancellor Merkel’s attack on the U.S. President could be a political ploy to divert attention from the media speculation about her health. This was her first media appearance after she was seen shaking uncontrollably in public for the third time in less than a month.

“I understand questions about my health, and I have already given an answer,” Merkel said dismissing a reporter’s questions about her recurring trembling fits. “I will finish my political work in 2021,” she added, referring to the end of her fourth tenure as the German Chancellor.

German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported Chancellor Merkel’s statement:

Addressing US President Donald Trump’s recent attacks against a group of minority congresswomen, Merkel clearly showed her disdain.

“I firmly distance myself from it and feel solidarity toward the attacked women,” Merkel said at her annual summer press conference in Berlin on Friday.

The chancellor said that “people of very different nationalities have contributed to the strength of the American people.”

She added that Trump’s statements “contradict the strength of America.”

This is not the first time German Chancellor has attacked the U.S. President. In her first message to President-elect Trump, she lectured him on gender, racial, and religious equality.

Berlin had been visibly upset by President Trump’s surprise election victory over the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Months ahead of the 2016 U.S. election, the German government funneled millions of euros to the Clinton Foundation.

President Trump has repeatedly slammed Chancellor Merkel for her open borders immigration policy, Germany’s growing energy dependence on Russian gas, and its reneging on its NATO spending pledge.

Chancellor Merkel’s remarks come at a time when the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) is surging in the pools ahead regional elections in Eastern Germany. In the key state of Brandenburg, encircling Berlin, the newcomer AfD was leading in the polls with 21 percent, while Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) were trailing at the third spot with just 16 percent. Polls showed strong showing for the AfD in the eastern states of Saxony and Thuringia as well.

Omars comments “contradict the strength of America.”
I she’d care less if Omar was white and Trump was black.

Though I have to give Merkel credit for taking England without a fight.

    Did she take it or did they give it away? One can argue that 75 years on Germany won the war by default. Europe has forgotten the adage, “Keep Russia out, keep America in and keep Germany down”.

      Merkel has once again proved the truth of the saying, “The Hun is always either at your throat or your feet….”

It is clear that Trump has utter contempt for Merkel. Disdain

Aren’t we coming up on the annual winterfest gropefest?

Anyways, shakes, thanks for weighing in, Merkel.

This woman’s opinion could not be more irrelevant. She is a complete failure who has destroyed her country, and the rest of Europe, with her insane immigration policies. How many women have been raped, abused, and murdered as a direct result of her actions? She should be hanging her head in shame and dealing with whatever mysterious health problems are afflicting her, rather than attacking the one man who is singlehandedly trying to save western civilization.

    Interesting how both Mutter Merkel and Kankles have so much in common…like the utter contempt for their own countrymen and a fear of the electorate.

Germany is such a [email protected]$k that women are told by their female elected officials to cover up in order to not inflame the desires of the monsters they let in on Merkel a watch.
Maybe a burka or two will do, sooo

F/U Merkel, why don’t you just go on and shake on out of here…

Of course she feels solidarity with them: she hates the West also

brain dead leftists bints flock together.

She feels solidarity with racists and anti-semites?? Not a good look for Germany.

Merkel can go to hell – where she belongs. When will Germans finally get this?

From what state does she hail? It’s not uncommon for citizens to vote and “send them home”. That said, Merkel needs to focus on mitigate the progress of catastrophic anthropogenic immigration reform forced by social justice mongering, including: summary judgments, torture, and execution… children waterboarded in the Mediterranean, to what end? Social progress, really? Perhaps mineral rights.

Was the old commie sow shaking when she attacked Trump?

Of course the ex-DDR Communist would feel solidarity with the Socialist-Democrats.

U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, made his position known with a question for Merkel and a statement:

Why isn’t the anti-Semitism from “the squad” being condemned? @aoc’s claim that there are “concentration camps” on the US border is absurd. https://t.co/oXVg8TS2dl

    Trump has made several mistakes in his choices. Ambassador Grenell is not one of them. I can’t think of a man that served his country as well as Grenell at an ambassador slot.

    Exactly. Their comments could have landed them in jail in Germany. They actually do control speech, police will visit for non-PC posts.

Fine, she can take them. They can go to Germany, bye bye!

Saaaayyyyy, I thought the Germans LOST WWII?

and WWI. Pansy Europeans.

Merkel is that rare oddity- a German who wants to be French and try to display all the traits that have made France what it is today.

Everyone seems to forget that frau Shaky was born and grew up in the DDR- East Germany. This was back when socialism was so good that they used a wall and machine guns and minefields to keep people in.

Of course she does.

The administration should offer the UK a favorable draft economic agreement, should they do a hard brexit. And suggest the Central European nations that just escaped the USSR, form a CE group to protect themselves from the growing Greater Germany, errr, I mean, the EU.
