    Trump slams Germany for its ruinous immigration policies

    18 de junio de 2018

    Washington, Jun 18 (efe-epa).- US President Donald Trump vented Monday on Twitter about the crisis the government of Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel is currently going through because of its immigration policies, and said the European attitude on the matter is allowing a radical change in its culture.

    "The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!" Trump tweeted.

    The president's message referred to the tense situation facing the German chancellor after Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said in the past few days that he strongly favored closing Germany's borders in order to end the immigration crisis.

    That possibility has sparked a dangerous institutional crisis in Berlin, where Merkel governs with the support of a conservative coalition made up of, among others, the Christian Social Union, Seehofer's party.

    Merkel answered her interior minister by recalling that the solution to the problem of accepting refugees comes from Brussels through an agreement of all member states of the European Union.

    "We don't want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!" said the US president.

    Such tensions are not new in Germany, which has welcomed close to 1.3 million refugees since 2015. However, the fragmentation of a government formed a scant four months ago, thanks to a coalition of parties of very different policies, has weakened Merkel's position and puts her immigration policies at risk.
