Germany’s Chancellor Merkel Warns US President Trump Against ‘Destroying’ UN
Sunday, with a sour puss German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned US President Donald Trump against “destroying” the United Nations.
“I believe that destroying something without having developed something new is extremely dangerous,” Ms. Merkel said at a regional election campaign event in Bavaria.
Germany’s veteran leader, a close ally of President Trump’s antithesis, Barack Hussein Obama while he was President added that she believed multilateralism is the solution to many of the world’s problems.
In his 2nd appearance before the UN’s annual gathering last week, President Trump told the General Assembly that he and his administration “reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism”.
Ms. Merkel’s opposing view to President Trump puts her in the same camp as UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who warned before President Trump took the podium in New York Tuesday that “today, world order is increasingly chaotic”.
Last week President Trump also let the world know what he Tweeted his displeasure with the China, and saying “we are beating them on Trade, opening markets, and the farmers will make a fortune when this is over.”
The Trump Administration implemented tariffs to obtain elimination of China’s unfair policies and begin to level the playing field between American companies and their Chinese competitors, and The Trump Administration does not take the imposition of tariffs lightly and recognizes the entire world benefits from free trade.
China’s troubling economic trajectory is not getting coverage in the nation’s media, as is under the firm control of the Chinese Communist Party.
