Source: Reuters


JULY 19, 2019 / 6:43 AM / UPDATED 2 HOURS AGO

BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Merkel on Friday distanced herself from U.S. President Donald Trump’s comment that four minority Democratic congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

Trump told four lawmakers - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan - to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”.

All four of them are U.S. citizens and three of them were born in the United States

“I decisively distance myself from that and I feel solidarity with the ... attacked women,” Merkel told a news conference.

4. I have more respect for Angela than ever.

Hopefully, when the time comes, Germany will pick a like-minded successor to Merkel.
