Last quote about Trump-Merkel

Ralf Stegner
What (Germany) shouldn't do is take an anti-American course. We should never forget that relations with the United States are very important for us. (The U.S.) will survive a Trump presidency, definitely. Donald Trump does a lot of things that are very worrisome for Europe, and that even makes the nationalistic developments we have within Europe stronger.feedback

Angela Merkel

We will gather all our strength – in Germany, in Europe and in the world – to meet the great challenges of humanity, like climate change, and to successfully master these challenges. For all for whom the future of this planet is important, I say: Let us continue along this path together, so that we are successful for our Mother Earth. The path, there is no doubt about it, is rocky. I have known that ever since I started in politics. But I am also convinced, if I look back at these more than 20 years, that the path is irreversible.feedback

Angela Merkel

That's of huge importance and in no way directed against any other relationships and certainly not against the trans-Atlantic ties, which have historically been very important for us and will remain so in future. For that reason, it's important to us that we make progress on the German-Indian, or rather EU-Indian free trade agreement.feedback

Daniel W. Drezner

What's truly impressive about [State's] silence is the apparent lack of comprehension by Trump's foreign policy team about why Merkel would have fired these shots. Trump's ignorant rhetoric and brash demeanor virtually guarantee that elected leaders in large advanced industrialized democracies will benefit from resisting Trump.feedback

Dietmar Bartsch

It is long overdue to establish independent policies from the administration of Donald Trump. The G7 format has definitely failed.feedback

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

Election campaign or no election campaign, in this situation let me be entirely clear: the chancellor represent all of us at summits like these. And I reject with outrage the way this man takes it upon himself to treat the head of our country's government. It is the order of the day to obstruct this man with all that we represent.feedback

Angela Merkel

The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days. The trans-Atlantic partnership is of outstanding importance and what I said was merely meant to note that in view of the current situation there are more reasons ... for us in Europe to take our fate into our own hands. India wants the world not just to be interconnected but also that it should be sensibly run.feedback

Angela Merkel

Here is a situation where it's six, seven if you include the EU, against one. That means there are so far no signs whether the United States of America will remain in the Paris agreement or not.feedback

Sylke Tempel

You don't want to be sitting too comfortably in Trump's boat, or in Trump's boat at all, because Trump's not liked here.feedback

Stephan Bierling

Europeans think they are now being treated worse by Trump than countries like Russia or Saudi Arabia. Given her experience with the Cold War, Merkel has long upheld and defended American ideals. But the belief in shared values has been shattered by the Trump administration.feedback

Sylvie Goulard

At a time when we want to take steps forward for Europe and its defense, it is a spur.feedback

Frederick Trump

We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change.feedback

Angela Merkel

We also know that we Europeans must really take our fate into our own hands. It became clear at the G7, when there was no agreement with the USA, how long and rocky this path would be. I think it was good not to gloss over the differences. Anyone who today puts on national blinkers and no longer has eyes for the world around him is, I am convinced, ultimately out on a limb.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

Anyone who accelerates climate change by weakening environmental protection, who sells more weapons in conflict zones and who does not want to politically resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk. The Trump administration wants to terminate climate agreements, wants to enforce military action in crisis regions and won't allow people from certain religious circles to enter the US. The West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker. The shortsighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union.feedback

Sylke Tempel

I've never seen her in 12 years give up on anything. She's someone who is very sober about the guys with the big agendas and big egos, be it (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, be it (Turkish President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan, be it Trump.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

Anyone who accelerates climate change by weakening environmental protection, who sells more weapons in conflict zones and who does not want to politically resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk. The short-sighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union. We Europeans must fight for more climate protection, fewer weapons and against religious (fanaticism), otherwise the Middle East and Africa will be further destabilised. TAKE FATE INTO OUR HANDS.feedback

Juergen Hardt

Never before has there been so much uncertainty about the political course, and so many contradictions in the president's statements, four months after the inauguration of a new U.S. president. That weakens America and irritates its partners.feedback

Theresa May

We are not leaving Europe. We are leaving the European Union. We continue to want a deep and special partnership with the remaining 27 countries in the European Union and we will continue to be committed to working with others in Europe both in terms of ... a comprehensive free trade agreement but also in terms of our security. Those negotiations will start just 11 days after polling day and there won't be any putting it off. It won't be possible to stall it.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

The short-sighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union. The West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker. We Europeans must fight for more climate protection, fewer weapons and against religious (fanaticism), otherwise the Middle East and Africa will be further destabilised.feedback

Elmar Thevessen

Merkel sent a very important signal. Solidarity for Donald Trump is a commodity, only available with advance payment. I am not a psychologist, but am judging as a political scientist and journalist: this U.S. president is dangerous. We Europeans can do nothing against it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Just returned from Europe. Trip was a great success for America. Hard work but big results. It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media. Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names… it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy! Does anyone notice how the Montana Congressional race was such a big deal to Dems & Fake News until the Republican won? V was poorly covered.feedback

Sylke Tempel

She feels there is a turning point - trans-Atlantic relations won't be the relations we've seen over the last decades. Trump accelerates it, but it was to be expected.feedback

Suzanne Moore

There’s a statesmanship – a vision, a morality and a core – to her that was thrown into sharp relief by Donald Trump’s shambling visit to Europe. Angela Merkel – or “leader of the free world” as she is now to be known – did not wait long to see the back of Donald Trump before she made it clear that things have changed. She told a rally of 2,500 people in Munich where she kicked off her campaign to be re-elected that the EU must now be prepared to look after itself, that it could no longer depend on the UK or America. “The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over … I’ve experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans have to take fate into our own hands.”.feedback

Angela Merkel

The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I've experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands. There are no indications whether the United States will stay in the Paris Agreement or not. Where Germany can help, Germany will help, because Germany can only do well if Europe is doing well.feedback

Donald Tusk - European Council

Look at the millions of cars that they are selling in the United States. It's horrible. We'll stop it.feedback

Barack Obama

We can't hide behind a wall. My hope was to get 100 percent of people health care. We didn't quite achieve that but we were able to get 20m people healthcare who didn't have it before. Now some of the progress we made is imperiled because a significant debate is taking place in the United States. In the eyes of God the child on the other side of the border deserves no less love and compassion than my own.feedback

Barack Obama

The world order is at a crossroads. In this new world we live in, we can't isolate ourselves, we can't hide behind a wall.feedback

Angela Merkel

We are responsible for each other. I am trying to convince doubters. There is still work to do.feedback

Frank Bainimarama

We have an elephant in the room. That is uncertainty over the position of the United States.feedback

Marc Chandler - Brown Brothers Harriman

The key issue is about trade and protectionism. I don't think anything changes. I'd say G-7 heads of state has nice photos, but substance, not so much. The meetings are important. Trump is still an unknown quantity for Europe.feedback

Boris Schlossberg

It definitely lit a fuse under the euro today. At this point...they can afford to have a little bit of a stronger euro. I think she's just playing politics with Trump, and saying we're doing our part. I think she's just giving it lip service. The last thing she wants is a strong euro. She realizes the euro needs to be around these levels for a long time for the European economy to heal.feedback

Jane Foley - Rabobank International

(President) Macron's choice of a Republican prime minister will have boosted his chances of a parliamentary majority next month. The common ground between him and (Chancellor Angela) Merkel as noted in Monday's meeting and the chancellor's election success in regional elections at the weekend are all EUR positive factors. Indeed, the better political backdrop in Europe is in contrast to the latest scandal involving (President Donald) Trump and Russia.feedback

Peter Wittig

We feel there is now a productive working relationship.feedback

Robin Niblett - Chatham House

You simply can't afford to put all your eggs in one basket with this administration. Trump is on one day and off the other. One day you have a deal and the next day you don't. You have to hedge. And you have to cover yourself at home because he can dump you in it at any moment.feedback

Angela Merkel

We do not want isolation. We want open trade and to fight against protectionism. This will be a tough issue within the G20 negotiations, but when working on a political document, it would of course be a great support for us if the economies in all G20 countries supported it.feedback

Angela Merkel

We are 20 different countries, with 20 different political systems, with 20 different development levels. Everything must be unanimously approved. Anyone who tries to withdraw from international competition, can perhaps deliver short-term advantages. But over the medium- and long-term, their own capacity to innovate will be weakened.feedback

Angela Merkel

The existence of the G20 means that isolation and protectionism are dead-ends and not ways forward.feedback

Angela Merkel

I don't rule out that the negotiations over a trade deal with the U.S. will be revived one day.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Certainly not the latter. You hear the reaction from the audience. Some attitudes toward women that your father has displayed might leave one questioning whether he's such an empowerer of women. I should have pressed 'coffee,' . I threw it a curveball by pressing 'hot chocolate.feedback

Angela Merkel

This naturally doesn't rule out that we have different opinions on some points, including on important questions.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Looking forward to working together in Berlin next month to promote the role of women in the economy and the future of our workforce globally #W20‬.feedback

Maria Katasonova

Putin, Trump and Le Pen all stand up for their countries' interests but they understand very well that cooperation and dialogue with each other's countries can correct the mistakes that the Obama-Merkel-Hollande axis made–really serious mistakes like allowing for terrorism, an economic crisis, and a refugee crisis. They can fix all that.feedback

Jessica Valenti

Men constantly ignore women – but most of the time no one notices it. Except, that is, when it happens on the world stage. A few years ago, my husband and I ran into a mutual acquaintance at a restaurant. This young man - a person who would surely identify as progressive - spent the entirety our interaction completely ignoring me. He spoke only to my husband; he wouldn’t even look at me when I asked a direct question.feedback

Angela Merkel

Not a single NATO member state pays its entire defense budget into NATO. If you look at our military commitment today, then you see that a quarter-century later Germany plays a completely different role. But it is a process, and it is a process that the United States of America wanted ... and we cannot simply cast off this process from one day to the next.feedback

Marcel Dirsus

Nothing would be worse for Ms. Merkel than being seen as taking orders from Trump. Ultimately, I predict Germany will increase spending – but at the pace it had already committed to.feedback

Tim Condon

Multilateralism is out. The U.S. administration will pursue its America First agenda through bilateral negotiations with countries running large trade surpluses with the U.S. Germany is one and in his meeting with German Chancellor Merkel, President Trump complained that the U.S. had been treated 'very, very unfairly' by its trading partners.feedback

Angela Merkel

"It's much, much better to talk to one another and not about one another, and I think our conversation proved this."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

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

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

Natalie Nougayrède

Today’s White House meeting could prove to be the most crucial for transatlantic relations since the end of the Soviet bloc. As close encounters go, this was bound to be a defining one. Angela Merkel, Europe’s most powerful, values-oriented, refugee-welcoming and Putin-resisting leader, finally met Donald Trump, potential wrecker of the west and liberal democracy.feedback

Justin Trudeau

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

Daniela Schwarzer

The German chancellor is known for her ability not to spontaneously react emotionally to provocation and to choose a very moderate tone, even when critical situations occur. But, I think she has to prepare for a more confrontational style.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

Anthony Gardner

Europe is in a very fragile, precarious state and Germany is trying to ensure that the European integration project holds together. I suspect the chancellor will want to make this clear to the president. This is an opportunity to sketch out areas of common interest, to define a positive agenda. But one meeting won't change the atmosphere on its own.feedback

Charles Kupchan

Do I think they are going to become good friends? Probably not. They are very different personalities. But I do think they have a strong interest, both politically and strategically, in learning how to work together. It is arguably the most important meeting with a foreign leader of Trump's presidency.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

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

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

Josef Janning

Merkel wants to demonstrate to the political world in Germany and Europe that she can handle Trump. Merkel knows that it is part of Trump's strategy to try to intimidate negotiation partners. . . . Therefore, the chancellor needs to convey a certain coolness to show that this won't cut it with her.feedback

Harald Krueger - BMW

Free trade has only made this success story in the U.S. possible -- 70 percent of the automobiles produced here are exported.feedback

Joe Kaeser

What we are seeing worries us. America became great through immigrants...I hope that this great country will recall what has made it great.feedback

Angela Merkel

I believe that direct conversation is always much better than talking about each other.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

Anthony Glees

So far Frau Merkel's attitude towards Trump has been seen as passive aggressive, Trump's attitude towards Merkel as active aggressive. They must cordially agree to disagree on past actions and past words, but to work together. There will be huge pressure from Trump's backroom guys to chum up to Frau Merkel. America needs a big friend in the EU and Britain, for obvious reasons, can't be that friend any longer.feedback

Peter Navarro

It's a serious issue. Germany is one of the most difficult trade deficits that we're going to have to deal with but we're thinking long and hard about that.feedback

Peter Navarro

It would be useful to have candid discussions with Germany about ways that we could possibly get that deficit reduced outside the boundaries and restrictions that they claim that they are under.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

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

Brigitte Zypries

We must talk, talk, talk. The kind of isolation Donald Trump apparently strives for would hurt everyone, including American business. U.S. business can have no interest in an escalation either.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

Omid Nouripour

The German government must stand up for the over 100,000 German citizens who are affected by the order.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

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

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

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

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
