Apparently Trump is backing regime change, in Germany.

It’s not new to hear U.S. officials rooting for regime change. It’s just been a while since they’ve talked about it with regard to Berlin.

President Donald Trump’s attacks on Twitter against German Chancellor Angela Merkel this week provided the clearest evidence yet of a sprawling American campaign to undermine her. While Trump’s disdain for Merkel has been evident since the early days of his presidential run, he and his ideological allies have ramped up their efforts dramatically just as the German leader faces what experts call one of her most serious challenges yet: developing a Europe-wide policy on asylum seekers by July 1 to appease a crucial right-wing partner in her coalition government.

Merkel now has to contend with not only local opponents but also a network of influential anti-immigrant Americans and other international activists inspired by Trump and similar illiberal leaders, like Hungary’s Viktor Orban and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

They’re determined to punish the chancellor for welcoming more than a million desperate refugees seeking shelter in Europe since 2015 ― and ultimately want to prove that compassion toward immigrants is now political suicide in the West.

The key players are hard to identify, but their number includes the president himself, national security adviser John Bolton, former White House aide and ongoing Trump defender Steve Bannon and powerful Trump whisperer Stephen Miller, who attacked Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign by calling her “America’s Merkel.”

Angela Merkel is of course widely admired here in America and has been labeled the leader of the free world now that Trump has tripped over his dick.

I would assume that all of that has irritated the crap out of Cheeto Hitler, but to actually attempt to undermine the reelection of an Amerian ally seems all but unprecedented. 

Of course these days what ISN’T unprecedented?

    Merkel is done.

    She was toast long before Trump became President.

    The Citizens of Germany want her gone, as they have woken up to the dismantling and destruction of their society and their personal safety due to her policies.

      Same troll who says that Trudeau is finished in Canada.

      Gee, I wonder who you could be working for?

        Not a troll Gryphen and you know it. Just a realistic observer of the world.

        i.e. We’d all like to have utopia with all our own idealistic views followed, but that is not reality, that is why mankind developed government and laws, like em or not.

        btw… I’m the same ‘troll’ who told you Hillary was going to lose the election. It was not a desire or a want… just understood how the pendulum was swinging.

        Populism is ‘in’ these days.

    Trump knows Angela is much smarter than he is and she loves Obama, reason enough for him to hate her.

    Now I know little donnie is really learning disabled, he was whining to his cult at the last rally that nobody calls him an elitist, because he has a bigger, better apt, he is smarter and he has more money. Notice he doesn’t say better educated.

    He is so stupid he doesn’t realize the term elitist used by his uneducated followers is a derogatory term, their heads must be spinning! Now what are they going to call liberals?

    Donnie two-scoops is threatened by her smarts. He has to try to diminish her in his childish mind to elevate himself.
    This is a recurrent pattern with him of course. There are lots of folks a whole lot smarter than him
    so he continually tries to undermine others..

      Agreed. Plus he’s threatened by a female head of state who really knows her stuff. Her competence makes the failure that is Donald Trump look even worse.

      It’s no wonder that pics of the two of them in public together always look awkward. He also refused to shake her hand when she visited the White House months ago.

        She looks like she’s babysitting, waiting patiently for someone to come pick him up. Poor thing.

    In reality the people living in the E. U. are fair better off then most Americans, just starting with universal health care, day care and paternity and maternity leave.

    They should just ignore him, do what is right and return once we get this nut out of the WH.

    By the way, didn’t little donnie run on America First, he wasn’t going to involve himself in other countries business, guess Putin told him otherwise.
