Germany accuses Theresa May of being ‘complicit’ in Trump policies putting Europe at risk
GERMANY has accused Theresa May of being “complicit” in some of Donald Trump’s which they claim is putting Europe’s security at risk.

In a damning speech, Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel claimed all world leaders who fail to “determinedly oppose” the US President’s stance on climate change, religion and war are equally accountable.

He roundly condemned Mr Trump’s policies, and launched an implicit attack on the British Prime Minister – who has ignored calls to convince Donald Trump to keep the US in the Paris Agreement.

And Mr Gabriel made clear there is a growing political divide between the European Union and America, with the UK hanging on the sidelines.

Mr Gabriel said: “Whoever accelerates climate change by not protecting the environment adequately, whoever sells more weapons into war zones, whoever does not choose to resort to politics to resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk.

“The Trump administration wants to end climate deals, distribute more arms in crisis region and prevent people of some religions from traveling into [the US].

“If we Europeans don’t determinedly oppose this today, then the flows of migration into Europe will only become greater.

“Whoever does not oppose these US policies is making themselves complicit.”

In contrast Ms May has talked ‘special relationship’ between the US and UK stronger.

She has also been accused of being Mr Trump’s “mole” in the EU, ahead of the Brexit negotiations.

Mr Gabriel’s comments come after Angela Merkel also highlighted the dip in transatlantic relations.

She said: “The era in which we could fully rely on others is over to some extent.

“That’s what I experienced over the past several days.”

  1. It is a game. Agela Merkel is making noise because there is election in Germany, she was losing because she let a million refugees in to Germany, she is trying to attract voters by being tough on America and UK. The UK Prime minister is right now losing voters because of her manifesto charging taxes on elderly peoples houses to pay for their care, so she is blaming Europe undermining UK to look like she is nationalist to gain voters. Trump said so many things during presidential campaign, it all game.
