Trump launches new Twitter tirade against Germany

President Trump took to Twitter yesterday to complain about a USA trade deficit with Germany and his belief that the country must pay more for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance.

"We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation & military", Trump wrote, in his flamboyantly undiplomatic style.

In an interview Tuesday on Fox News, Conway said Dubke "made very clear that he would see through the president's worldwide trip, and come to work every day and work hard even through that trip because there was much to do here back at the White House".

"Hola Espana! Prime Minister Modi arrives in Madrid, first visit by an Indian Prime Minister in almost three decades, is received by Spanish FM in a special gesture", said Gopal Baglay, spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs in a tweet.

"I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals (sic), you know taking all of the people from wherever they come from", Trump said in a joint interview published by German daily Bild and British newspaper The Times, referring to Merkel's open-door policy for refugees fleeing war and persecution.

Merkel on Tuesday repeated her call for Europe to take control of its own destiny, but also dismissed any talk that Germany is shifting away from its old ally and pivoting East.

US President Donald Trump has offered both candid praise and unabashed criticism of Germany and its policies. "We (also) want to double the number of German companies in India to 3,600 from 1,800", according to Singh who retired in March this year after serving 37 years in foreign service with Germany being his last posting.

It's also not the first time a German chancellor has clashed with a USA president. The prime minister is now on a four-nation visit to Germany, Spain, Russia and France.

At the G7 summit, the six other nations were at odds with Trump on climate change and migration.

"We are meant for each other", Modi said. "This is what I have experienced in the last few days". Modi suggested that India will adhere to the Paris climate accords, while Trump makes up his mind.
