Germany-US relations will not change after election – MEP Brok
The outcome of the general election in Germany will not substantially influence the country’s relations with the United States, as Angela Merkel is likely to remain chancellor, says Elmar Brok, Christian Democrat member of the European Parliament in an interview with Teri Schultz of Deutsche Welle. There has been and will continue to be “total disagreement” between the two countries on climate and trade policy. Even if the leadership changes, “climate change is there with or without Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Trump. It's a fact”, said Brok.
