Donald J. Trump

Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Nevertheless, Germany owes…. …vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany! I reiterated to Chancellor Merkel our strong support for NATO, as well as the need for our NATO allies to pay their fair share for the cost of defense.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm not an isolationist, I'm a free trader. But I'm also a fair trader. And our free trade has led to a lot of bad things happening. I am not an isolationist by any stretch of the imagination. So I don't know what newspaper you're reading, but I guess that would be another example, as you say, of 'fake news.'.feedback

Angela Merkel

"That is the spirit I think in which we ought to be guided in negotiating any agreement between the United States of America and the EU,"feedback

Donald J. Trump

These nations must pay what they owe. The negotiators for Germany have done a far better job than the negotiators for the United States, but hopefully we can even it out. We don't want victory, we want fairness. It's going to be passed, I believe. It's coming together beautifully. We have conservative groups, other groups, everybody wants certain things.feedback

Angela Merkel

The "success of Germans has always been one where the German success is one side of the coin and the other side of the coin has been European unity and European integration. That's something of which I'm deeply convinced. We need to be fair with each other.feedback

Angela Merkel

It is only fair that both sides profit from the treaties they made. So in this spirit I would be happy if we could resume discussions between the European Union and the United States of America. We signed a trade agreement with Canada and I hope that we might get into a situation here where we can reopen the talks. But this is something we will discuss.feedback

Angela Merkel

Do you want a handshake? We have benefited. That is the spirit which should be guiding these agreements. It is much better to talk to one another, not about one another. We talked about the international situation, we discussed the shared interests that we have. We are trying to address the areas where we disagree….and find a compromise. We need to be fair with each other.feedback

Donald J. Trump

(I) probably wouldn't be here right now, but very seldom. We have a tremendous group of people that listen and I can get around the media when the media doesn't tell the truth, so I like that. As far as wiretapping, I guess by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps. And just to finish your question, we said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. You shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox. I don't believe in an isolationist policy. I don't know what newspaper you're reading, but I guess that would be an example of fake news. Immigration is a privilege, not a right, and the safety of our citizens must always come first, without question.feedback

Erik Wemple

At a joint news conference Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Trump fielded a question from a German journalist as to whether he felt it was a “mistake” to accuse British intelligence of assisting former President Barack Obama in allegedly surveilling him. Wrapped up in the question was a pivotal question about the relationship between the Trump White House and the conservative media. After all, the claim about British intelligence stemmed directly from a report by Fox News’s Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey judge.feedback

Angela Merkel

If I was able to, I would turn back time by many, many years, so that I could have prepared the whole government and the authorities for the situation which hit us out of the blue in the late summer of 2015.feedback

Angela Merkel

I am deeply convinced that the trans-Atlantic partnership, based on common values, is in all of our interests, not only for us Europeans. I'll hold my talks with President Donald Trump in this spirit in the coming week.feedback

Jim Cramer

I think that ... the liberal media will be talking about how Merkel is a sworn opponent of Russia, and Obama and Merkel worked together.feedback

Joerg Forbrig

President Trump is probably the least popular U.S. president in a very long time. If this meeting somehow doesn't succeed ... this would certainly be a liability politically for Angela Merkel here in Germany. I think she will have to get along with him. There's a whole set of issues of cooperation and a normal working relationship across the Atlantic. It is simply indispensable.feedback

Constanze Stelzenmüller

If any European leader can be assumed to have profound insights into (Putin's) thinking and psychology, but at the same time have a very hard-nosed attitude toward a strategic goal, then it would be Merkel. This is how its been with him, this is how he works, this is how he tries to gain your trust, this is how he tries to keep you on edge. These are his goals and this is his modus operandi. This is the thing she has twelve years of experience with as Chancellor.feedback

Jeff Rathke

There is still lingering doubt about ... how the U.S. sees European security, and whether the U.S. sees its security and Europe's security as intrinsically linked and inseparable.feedback

Juergen Hardt

Those who know the chancellor know that she has a knack for winning over people in personal discussions. I am sure that Donald Trump will not be immune.feedback

Matthew Karnitschnig - Politico

Merkel's challenge will be to counter Trump's perception of reality without turning him against her.feedback

Angela Merkel

Well, people are different. Sometimes, it's difficult to find compromises, but that's what we've been elected for. If everything just went like that without a problem, well, you don't need politicians to do these jobs. I am very glad to note that apparently the perspective on that has changed a little bit at least in Germany, too.feedback

Justin Trudeau

There have been times when we have differed in our approaches, and that's always done firmly and respectfully.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I've spent a lot of time at St Patrick's Day parades over the years, I will tell you that.feedback

Constanze Stelzenmüller

Constanze Stelzenmüller is Robert Bosch senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a contributing writer for The Post.feedback

Angela Merkel

I stand by a free and independent press and have great respect for journalists.feedback

Peter Wittig

The chancellor comes to Washington with a very open mind-set and a constructive, pragmatic and forward-looking attitude. We want to build on the strong relationship we've had over the past 70 years.feedback

Angela Merkel

The United States of America is a key trading partner for Germany and for the entire European Union. Trade is advantageous for both sides and I'm looking forward to the chance to speak to the newly elected American president about these issues. I believe that direct, one-on-one conversations are always much better than talking about each other. Talking together instead about each other - that'll be my slogan for this visit, which I'm really looking forward to.feedback

Angela Merkel

Talking with each other instead of talking about each other will be my motto for the visit, which I am very much looking forward to.feedback

Angela Merkel

Talking directly is always much better than talking about each other. That will be my motto on this visit, which I am looking forward to. I am deeply convinced that the trans-Atlantic partnership based on common values is in all of our interests, not only for us Europeans. I'll hold my talks with President Donald Trump in this spirit. Precisely because the nature of the trans-Atlantic relationship has changed, Europe has decided to take more responsibility in the future, both in our own neighborhood and beyond.feedback

Sylke Tempel

You can only find that out when you're there, and this is a situation where she's particularly good because she observes things. Putin tried that on her, Erdogan tried that and there are quite a few others. She has an enormous amount of patience, an internal calm and self-confidence, and the kind of personality that would say 'I've seen macho characters come and go, and I've seen men making a lot of mistakes.feedback

Angela Merkel

I am deeply convinced that the trans-Atlantic partnership based on common values is in all of our interests, not only for us Europeans. I'll hold my talks with President Donald Trump in this spirit. Precisely because the nature of the trans-Atlantic relationship has changed, Europe has decided to take more responsibility in the future, both in our own neighborhood and beyond.feedback

Joe Kaeser

The new American president has a style that's different from what we're accustomed to. It worries us, what we see.feedback

Angela Merkel

I have made it clear once again that the fight against terrorism does not justify a general advance against certain countries and people with a certain belief.feedback

Juergen Hardt

Does the American president want to force Americans to stop buying German cars in the future? Do we want to artificially make German cars more expensive with taxes so that consumers buy more foreign products?feedback

Angela Merkel

Even if in parts of the world we see protectionist and nationalist approaches on the rise, Europe may never isolate, seal itself off or withdraw.feedback

Angela Merkel

We have to see what the U.S. administration does and then we have to decide whether to react or not to react. I have often said that I support multilateralism and mutual trade agreements. I believe the world mastered the financial and banking crisis because we reacted together in the G20. It's in the German interest to ideally strengthen the similarities that both sides share from our side, from the cooperation of intelligence agencies to issues of defence.feedback

Angela Merkel

We will try to find common ground wherever possible. We will see issue by issue where we can cooperate and where we have different opinions, but it's in Germany's interest to strengthen the common ground there is.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Sometimes I have the impression that the new administration does not know the European Union in detail but in Europe details matter.feedback

Angela Merkel

I believe that the more we are clear on how we define our role in the world, the better we can manage our transatlantic relations, . That is why talking about Europe is on top of the agenda for me and not talking about other parts of the world.feedback

Angela Merkel

Germany is a country that has always called for the European Central Bank to pursue an independent policy, just as the Bundesbank did that before the Euro existed. Because of that we will not influence the behaviour of the ECB. And as a result, I cannot and do not want to change the situation as it is.feedback

Dieter Janecek

Donald Trump is no longer a reliable partner. If this insanity is not rescinded, that one should look into whether it is possible to impose a travel ban on him and (White House adviser) Stephen Bannon, the author of this unconstitutional rule.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

We are determined to protect the rights of our citizens and will take rapid action within the European Union about the steps that are now needed.feedback

Steffen Seibert

She is convinced that even the necessary, decisive battle against terrorism does not justify putting people of a specific background or faith under general suspicion.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I gave her great compliments until she allowed the refugees to come into Germany, and Germany ... has tremendous problems right now. Well I think Merkel is a really great world leader but I was very disappointed that, when she, this move with the whole thing on immigration. I think it's a big problem and really, you know, to look at what she's done in the last year and a half. I was always a Merkel person. I thought, really fantastic, but I think she made a very tragic mistake a year and a half ago.feedback

Donald J. Trump

They gave it to a woman who's not done the right thing in Germany. Nice woman, I like her, I like her. I better like her, I may have to deal with her. Look, Putin likes me, I want her to like me too. I have friends, I just left people from Germany and they don't even want to go back. Germany's being destroyed by Merkel's naïveté or worse. But Germany is a whole different place and you're going to have a problem in Germany.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

A whole range of leaders of countries which are US allies openly campaigned for Hillary Clinton. Angela Merkel was actively doing that as well as François Hollande, Theresa May and other leaders of European states. Moreover, besides direct campaigning for Hillary Clinton, official representatives of the European countries were not shy to demonise Donald Trump.feedback

Norbert Röttgen

The smart thing to do is not to yield to intimidation and threats. If you take this path once, you will become the object of threats and intimidation and I don't think that makes sense either for Germany as a whole or for individual companies.feedback

John Kerry

I thought frankly it was inappropriate for a president-elect of the United States to be stepping into the politics of other countries in a quite direct manner. He will have to speak to that. As of Friday, he is responsible for that relationship.feedback

Norbert Röttgen

I think it is politically right and economically wise to stick to our principles and our policies, which for Germany is a policy of open and fair trade.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

Nationalism and protectionism are not the recipies for greatness.feedback

Wolfgang Schäuble

Whoever wants growth - and I trust this administration will be a growth-friendly one - must be in favour of open markets. Protectionism can afford short-term advantages but is almost always damaging in the long term.feedback

Angela Merkel

We've got to fight this battle, if for no other reason than principle.feedback

John Kerry

I think that she was extremely courageous. I don't think it amounts to that characterization at all.feedback

Angela Merkel

I believe we Europeans have our fate in our own hands. I'm personally going to wait until the American president takes office, and then we will naturally work with him on all levels and see what kind of agreements we can reach.feedback

Boris Johnson

I think its very good news that the United States of America wants to do a good free trade deal with us and wants to do it very fast and it's great to hear that from President-elect Donald Trump. Clearly it will have to be one that is very much in the interest of both sides but I have no doubt that it will be.feedback

Angela Merkel

I am personally waiting for the inauguration of the US president. Then, of course, we will work with him on all levels.feedback

John Kerry

I think that she was extremely courageous and I don't think it amounts to [Trump's] characterization at all. It has had some problems, but everybody has had some problems with this challenge of how do you respond appropriately as a big nation, as a great nation, as the West, where our values and our principles are important with respect to caring for people who are in distress, who are put into refugee status.feedback

John Kerry

I think we have to be very careful about suggesting that one of the strongest leaders in Europe and most of important players with respect to where we are heading made one mistake or another. I don't think it's appropriate for us to be commenting on that.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think Brexit's going to end up being the great thing. And I predicted it – but the heat I took was unbelievable. And I said – it's because people don't wanna have other people coming in and destroying their country. I thought the UK was so smart in getting out.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I have great respect for her (Merkel), I felt she was a great great leader. I think she made one very catastrophic mistake – and that was taking all of these illegals, taking all of the people wherever they come from – and nobody really knows where they come from.feedback

Angela Merkel

As heads of state and government [of the G20], we said: 'We must resolve the problem facing us together'. And the response to overcome that financial crisis was not a response based on closing oneself off, but a response which called for cooperation, for common rules, for regulation of financial markets.feedback

Angela Merkel

There are also international risks. We see protectionist tendencies.feedback

Angela Merkel

As far as the Greek decisions are concerned, there is a critical discussion. The ESM made this clear. I'm sure I will speak with the Greek prime minister about this tomorrow, although I don't intend to get involved in the negotiations on the Greek package.feedback

Angela Merkel

So, one has to try to find compromises with mutual respect, but also with a clear opinion. That's politics - always looking to find a common way forward.feedback

Angela Merkel

Climate negotiations with American presidents ... were not easy in the past.feedback

Angela Merkel

Of course, I will then say that I believe that climate change is absolutely caused by people. We want to see how the positions develop.feedback

Angela Merkel

We cannot tackle all the world's hunger, nor can we solve the problems of 65 million refugees, nor can we change the political order everywhere the way we would like it.feedback

Angela Merkel

This statement moved me, because it comes back to what we are made of. A little more than quarter of a century after the fall of the (Berlin) Wall and German reunification ... people are realising that what we have taken as given is no longer a given.feedback

Stephen Szabo

Merkel will have to walk a tight rope on her relationship to Trump ... Trump is deeply unpopular in Germany.feedback

Barack Obama

If she chooses to continue, she will have big burdens. I wish I could be there to lighten her load somewhat, but she is tough.feedback

Mary-Jo Jacobi

America has preserved through worse. (Trump) might surprise and do really well.feedback

Mary-Jo Jacobi

People are watching whoever goes into Trump Tower and whoever comes out, whether they are smiling or sad or whatever and it doesn't mean that any of these people is actually under consideration but many of them probably are.feedback

Mary-Jo Jacobi

I think Angela Merkel is in trouble when her term comes. It's just a time of great change.feedback

Mary-Jo Jacobi

I don't think Henry Kissinger is ready to come back into an American government at this point, but Mitt Romney, I am not sure that he really is under consideration for secretary of state.feedback

Barack Obama

I don't expect that the president-elect will follow exactly our blueprint or our approach, but my hope is that he does not simply take a realpolitik approach and suggest that, you know, if we just cut some deals with Russia, even if it hurts people or even if it violates international norms, or even if it leaves smaller countries vulnerable or creates long-term problems in regions like Syria, that we just do whatever is convenient at the time.feedback

Barack Obama

The negotiations on agreements like T-TIP have been challenging, and obviously at a moment when there is concerns about globalization.feedback

Angela Merkel

Alliances are part of our destiny as a nation, part of our future as a nation, and this is what guides me in my policy and my government as a whole.feedback

Angela Merkel

We all know that democracy lives off change. It's a tough rule: Eight years and that's it.feedback

Barack Obama

Do not take for granted our systems of government and our way of life. Democracy is hard work.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I was always a Merkel person, I thought really fantastic, but I think she made a very tragic mistake a year-and-a-half ago.feedback

Angela Merkel

The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees – rather, we have it, and had it, here.feedback

Donald J. Trump

There are more criminal acts in Germany these days because there are more people, thanks to the influx of 1.1 million refugees in 2015 alone.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Beyond terrorism, as we have seen in France, foreign populations have brought their anti-Semitic attitudes with them. In short, Hillary Clinton wants to be America's Angela Merkel. And you know what a disaster this massive immigration has been to Germany and the people of Germany. Crime has risen to levels that no one thought they would ever, ever see. It is a catastrophe. We have enough problems in our country. We don't need more.feedback

Barack Obama

And it is surprising. You got a room full of reporters, celebrities, cameras and he says 'no'. Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald. What could he possibly be doing instead? Is he at home, eating a 'Trump Steak', tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel? What is he doing?feedback
