Donald Trump understands what has been said all along for years here: The EU is a German project (also with French help) designed for the benefit Germany. It’s taking power once again, but this time through European integration and subjugation of non-compliant EU members. If you’re looking for Nazis, you’re 70 years late to the party. This time it’s different.
Trump, known for parsing through nonsense realizes Germany has anchored Europe, not the other way around as was supposed to be at the end of World War II.
PRESIDENT-elect Donald Trump believes Angela Merkel made “one very catastrophic mistake” with her open-door refugee policy, which has allowed a wave of more than one million migrants into Germany.
He claimed his relationship with Merkel “may not last long at all” as he slammed the German chancellor for allowing the migrant crisis to get out of control.
Mr Trump also hit out at the EU, abelling the crumbling Brussels bloc “a vehicle for Germany” and he suggested more countries will follow Britain’s “smart” decision in voting to leave.
Speaking to former Justice Minister Michael Gove for The Times, Mr Trump said: “I believe others will leave.”
“I do think keeping it together is not going to be as easy as a lot of people think.”
He added: “If refugees keep pouring into different parts of Europe… it’s going to be very hard to keep it together because people are angry about it.”
Mr Trump’s glowing praise for Brexit came as he slammed the EU, suggesting it functions primarily to serve Germany’s interests and ranking Merkel alongside Russian president Vladimir Putin in international leaders he fears could be problematic.
He said: “You look at the European Union and it’s Germany.
“Basically a vehicle for Germany.”
“That’s why I thought the UK was so smart in getting out.”
Mr Trump added: “I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals.”
“I do believe this, if they (EU countries) hadn’t been forced to take in all of the refugees, so many, with all the problems that it entails, I think that you wouldn’t have a Brexit.”
“It probably could have worked out but this was the final straw, this was the final straw that broke the camel’s back.”
