PressTV: Merkel to blame for letting Trump humiliate her that way: Her rival

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to blame for the way she has allowed US President Donald Trump to treat her, suggests her rival in the upcoming election.

Merkel’s top opponent in the September election, Martin Schulz, said Monday that Trump’s behavior towards the chancellor has been “unacceptable” and no country’s leader must “allow him or herself to be treated” that way, Deutsche Welle reported.

The US president delivered a condescending speech among NATO leaders Wednesday at the NATO headquarters in Brussels, where he failed to explicitly affirm Article 5 of the NATO charter, which stipulates allies to aid a fellow member under attack.

He also censured 23 NATO members for not spending 2 percent of their GDP on defense.

Schulz, who was once the president of the European Parliament, voiced “outrage” over Trump’s treatment of Merkel, calling it “unacceptable.”

“Election campaign or no election campaign, in this situation let me be entirely clear: the chancellor represent all of us at summits like these,” Schulz said. “And I reject with outrage the way this man takes it upon himself to treat the head of our country’s government. That is unacceptable.”

This is while Merkel said Berlin was still focused on boosting ties with Washington.

“[They] are a strong pillar of our foreign and security policy, and Germany will continue working to strengthen these relations,” Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, told The Associated Press. “Precisely because they are so important, it’s right to name differences honestly.”

After speaking with Trump at the recent Group of 7 (G7) summit, Merkel had said Germany could no longer “completely depend” on the US as a partner.

Trump has not been a great fan of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization like most other US alliances with Western partners.

Press TV (stylised PRESSTV) is a 24-hour English language news and documentary network, affiliated with Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB).

IRIB is state-owned but independent of the Iranian government in its management, and is the only legal TV and radio broadcaster inside Iran. IRIB's head is appointed directly by the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and is considered to be close to the country's conservative political faction.

Press TV is headquartered in Tehran, and has offices and bureaus around the world, including London, Beirut, Damascus, Kabul, and the Gaza Strip. It bills itself as a third alternative to what it considers to be biased Western media and to Sunni media attached to radical Islamic terror groups; critics consider it a shill for the Iranian regime.

Press TV is the first Iranian international news network. Their global Tehran-based headquarters is staffed with outstanding Iranian and foreign media professionals. Press TV is extensively networked with bureaus located in the world's most strategic cities. They feature often neglected voices and perspectives from around the world with aim to build bridges of cultural understanding, encouraging cooperation and unity between human beings of different nationalities, and races. They bring to light untold and overlooked stories of individuals who have experienced the vitality and versatility of political and cultural divides firsthand.

  1. Just another reason for Germany to divorce itself from Washington. Kick out all the US. military , the CIA and whoever else is involved and regain their freedom and independence from evil. The German people deserve better than this. The deserve to get their country back from Washington, the massive immigrant invasion stoked by israel and Turkey as they need to re-assert themselves instead of prostrating themselves before Washington and israel.
    I hope this latest incident mobilizes more people in Germany to realize they are better off without Washington, without NATO and without anybody else interfering in their own national politics the way Washington does.

    • The only divorce which need to happen is world wide divorce from Zionism. The everyday German and American folks are run by the same wavelength. If there were any “Germans” left in the Bundestag and not jooish hybrids a peace contract and a divorce from American and other allied forces would have happened long ago. The seed containing truth and freedom is suffocated long before it can flourish.

  2. BTW her rival you can smoke in a pipe, he is a complete moron coming from EU-Parliament and a greedy little assh…
    If I had to choose between those two I would stop voting for ever. All parties in parliament like CDU, SPD, Green and others are filled with the same zio-thugs and are just controlled oppositon in Banksters pockets. Like we saw in France the same meschpoke paid by Banksters. And all mournings are just smoke and mirror.

  3. Go and read what Michael Shrimpton told us about “our community partner Adolf Hitler”. And if you know who is Merkel in reality you can see the whole game played here. Remember Tavistock-Tactics ? All roads lead to Rome again…
