Just ask Donald Trump (after he gets off the phone with Australia). He and the new German foreign minister Sigmar Gabriel (SPD) ought to get along just fine. He’s coming for a visit to Washington today. If they let him through airport security, I mean.
“The US will have to build better cars.”
“Here in Europe, it is not our policy to stigmatize people.”
“He actually means it and I think we must dress warmly (be prepared).”
“Dear USA, stay the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
“Like speculators who ride the wave of rage, without care for the consequences.”
“I hope to have a direct and personal exchange, as well as to offer friendship and trust to Washington,” Gabriel said ahead of the meeting.
