Merkel speech – slams Trump. Attacks protectionism, trade war, walls of ignorance, lies.

No more Ms Nice Guy from German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Giving a Harvard University commencement address
  • “Protectionism and trade conflicts jeopardize free international trade and thus the very foundations of our prosperity,
  • “Our way of thinking and our actions have to be multilateral rather than unilateral, global rather than national, outward looking rather than isolationist.”
  • “Walls of narrow-mindedness and ignorance, they exist …”
  • answers even to difficult questions, … requires us not to describe lies as truth and truth as lies.” 
Wait until the tweeter-in-chief reads these reports – hiked EU auto tariffs on the way?
