Trump failed to endorse the Paris climate change accord and Angela Merkel isn’t happy about it.
Breitbart has the details:
Despite heavy lobbying from G7 leaders, President Donald Trump declined to endorse the Paris Climate Agreement in a joint pledge of support for one of former President Barack Obama’s signature achievements in office.
Trump’s decision upset world leaders like German Chancellor Angela Merkel, desperate to convince the president of the agreement’s merits.
“The Paris deal isn’t just any other deal. It is a key agreement that shapes today’s globalization,”
ZeroHedge also adds, it’s not only Merkel who is angry:
To be sure, its wasn’t just Merkel who was displeased with Trump. According to Politico, while he avoided any major gaffes or serious diplomatic breaches, Trump’s lack of rapport with European leaders raises serious questions about his ability to effectively team up with critical U.S. allies.
“Like when there’s a new strange kid in the class nobody likes,” said a senior EU official who was briefed on the closed NATO meetings in Brussels. “You behave civilly when teachers (media) watch but don’t spend time with him in private because he’s so different.”
He’s a different President. Get used to it.
