There is a common saying that occurs when two people are in a room who are not on very good terms. One “can cut the tension with a knife.” Those who recall some of the rather icy facts that Donald Trump pointed out about E.U. head Angela Merkel, both on the campaign trail and in office, know this too well. Although in this case, something a bit larger than a knife may be called for. Perhaps a tunnel boring machine.
Merkel is said to do better than expected in situations that are less than comfortable. That is good considering that she is meeting with Donald Trump, or at least plans are being put into motion to do so. People are wondering if the two will get along. The McClatchy DC Bureau reports that Merkel has met with “Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.” The chancellor of 12 years has been reviewing Trump’s speeches whilst taking notes. She will be prepared for the man who predicted that Germany would overthrow her and who was “ruining” Germany.
I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked person who is ruining Germany

One of the reasons for this uncomfortable setting is that Merkel has proven Trump correct in a number of ways. For one, Germany was much better off before Merkel let in more refugees than could be properly vetted. From there London got overrun by so many sharia supporting Islamists that the caliphate areas lead to Britain withdrawing from her E.U. The whole world knows that Sweden is the rape capital of the world now, a fact said in the news daily. Even journalists are getting attacked in Muslim “hot zones.” Compound that with the fact that Merkel has failed in other areas, such as crushing debt-ravaged Greece for profit. One can just see the ice crystals forming in the room where the two are to speak.
As for the prediction that foretold of Germans overthrowing the leader, there is still time. Brookings Institute and expert Constanze Stelzenmueller says, “She’s used to awkward meetings. She’s handled them quite well. You don’t linger over the personal.” Many left-leaners will try and spin the fact that Obama wiretapped his “friend” and German ally Merkel as a non-issue, because they claim that those two had a close relationship. Once the spying was uncovered, that had to be a less than pleasant meeting as well. It is noted that Obama made his last call as President to Merkel, so one does wonder just what was said (if anything) about the inevitable meeting with President Trump. The president likely felt the same when meeting Mexico.
Deeper than that, Merkel is an N.W.O worshipper. This was someone who knew that the right thing to do was take in less refugees more carefully, yet allowed the U.N. and “image” to trump her instincts. She even had the police ready and in place to handle the crisis peacefully. Instead, she is debating paying $76 MILLION to get those that she allowed in to leave. Since some are still entering and likely to do so more speedily in the coming Spring, Merkel’s confusing style has little in common with the tight bordered U.S. President.
The European Union is similar to the U.S, but they are a united union of countries, instead of states. America often sees states that threaten to leave and become nations over things like liberal corruption. However, this hasn’t happened since the Civil War. Merkel has already lost Great Britain, while Greece is all but out the door. They almost left once before and many think that they should have. Donald Trump, seeing these facts, has been correct in what he said regarding her and the whole E.U.
It is reported that Jeff Rathke, senior fellow and deputy director of the Europe Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies said, “I think Germany views the United States with equal portions of puzzlement and concern at the moment.” That is also how America and Donald Trump see Germany and Merkel, respectively. Many ponder just how a nation can give their whole culture away to a religion that spreads hate in the name of Islam, and takes over every country that welcomes them in. ISIS and those like them announce that they plan to hide in with the refugee numbers. Even after numerous rapes and attacks, it just keeps happening.
We know Tuesday’s late blizzard-like snow kept Merkel from meeting Trump as had been planned. We also have learned that she and the president have “spoken by phone but have never met. Vice President Mike Pence visited with Merkel in Germany recently. Their aides have met.” Everyone has met Merkel except Trump it seems.
Therefore, the stage is set and that is the only hurdle left to soar over. Trump is not too proud for ask for help nor let it be known. This has been seen in his plans to ask Merkel for her insights in dealing with a very war enthused Putin. Merkel speaks Russian and was raised in communist East Germany while Putin was a KGB agent for the Soviets at the same time. That means that while she is not doing so well in Germany, she is still a very educated and knowledgeable world leader who is not without merit or help.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity has said, “The president will be very interested in hearing the chancellor’s views on her experience interacting with Putin. Of course, she’s been doing this for more than a decade. She’s met with Putin, I think, for at least a couple of dozen times. And so he’s going to be very interested in hearing her insights and what it’s like to deal with the Russians.” This is very good to hear since no one wants to imagine that Trump thinks that he can accomplish everything by himself, which he does not.
Talks about how she favors the proven fake news sites of CNN over Trump’s effort to stop their lies and smearing of people will not likely come up. Her attack on his travel ban won’t come up either, unless she wishes to look foolish when facts start coming out. Trump is expected to accept 50,000 refugees, the same number that Obama accepted, but no more. With so much happening in Russia, North Korea, China and the Islamic world, there is enough mutual ground that such issues need not arise. Perhaps that is how Merkel does so well in meeting with her critics. The world is in such a mess that no one can ever focus on the bickering. Still, that subterfuge can only work for so long and then, as Trump has said, she may just be overthrown by her fellow Germans.
