Angela Merkel à Washington mardi: des échanges vigoureux à prévoir

Première rencontre entre Angela Merkel et Donald Trump mardi à Washington. Parions que l'immigration et le commerce ne contribueront pas à les rapprocher...

 "Few leaders have displayed Ms. Merkel’s adroitness in handling swaggering, strongman leaders, whether it is Mr. Putin or Silvio Berlusconi of Italy. But in Mr. Trump, “she’s up against a different kind of testosterone-driven guy,” Mr. Joffe said. “Here is a guy who talked in the campaign as if he was going to put the ax to the liberal international world order.”

In an interview with a British newspaper in January, Mr. Trump said Ms. Merkel had made a “catastrophic” mistake in letting tens of thousands of refugees from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East enter Germany. “I respect her and I like her, but I think it was a mistake,” he said. “People make mistakes, but I think it was a really big mistake.”

He declined to say whether he would support Ms. Merkel in running for a fourth term as chancellor — a position repeated by a senior administration official who briefed reporters about her visit on Friday. It was a stark contrast to Ms. Merkel’s relationship with President Barack Obama, one of his closest with any foreign leader."
