Lofty words. Trump should uphold the “values of democracy, freedom, and respect for the law and the dignity of man, independent of origin, skin colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or political views. I offer the next President of the United States close cooperation on the basis of these values.”
Why does Merkel, and the rest of the European and North American political and media elites, believe that Trump might not uphold “the dignity of man, independent of origin, skin colour, religion,” etc.? Because he wants to stop the Muslim migrant inundation in order to keep at least some Islamic jihadis out of the U.S. As far as Merkel and her ilk are concerned, defense of one’s nation is contravening the “dignity of man.” The bloody assassin of Germany will only cooperate with Trump if he assassinates America, too.
She, like Hillary, needs to be thoroughly repudiated at the ballot box, and soon.
“Angela Merkel Issues Not-So-Subtle Warning To Donald Trump After His Presidential Win,” by Aubrey Allegretti, HuffPost UK, November 9, 2016:
Angela Merkel has issued a carefully-worded response to Donald Trump’s election as US President, taking aim at the divisive rhetoric he used during the campaign.
While Theresa May simply congratulated Trump on his victory, Merkel said she would only offer “close cooperation” dependent on his commitment to equal rights.
The German Chancellor, who has been the driving force behind the EU’s acceptance of hundreds of thousands of refugees, said her relationship with Trump would only succeed if he upheld “the dignity of man, independent of origin”.
She said: “Germany and America are connected by values of democracy, freedom, and respect for the law and the dignity of man, independent of origin, skin colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or political views.
“I offer the next President of the United States close cooperation on the basis of these values.
“The partnership with the United States is and remains a foundation of German foreign policy.”
She added that she had – like many others – “watched the election results with trepidation”.
The remarks are likely issued as a pointed warning to Trump, who has called for all 1.6 billion members of a religion to be banned from the US to prevent terror attacks….
No, he hasn’t, but that’s the Huffington Post for you.
