FDP leader accuses Merkel of lack of engagement with Trump

Berlin (dpa) - The leader of a German opposition party on Tuesday slammed Chancellor Angela Merkel for her perceived lack of engagement with US President Donald Trump since his inauguration last year.

"It is a big (act of) negligence that the relationship with the United States has not been a top priority of German foreign policy over the last year," said Christian Lindner, the head of the pro-business liberal party Free Democrats (FDP).

Lindner said this was particularly dangerous considering Trump‘s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, which experts say could lead to a trade war that would damage the global economy, as well as his threat of taxes on car imports from the EU.

The FDP leader referred to Trump as an "uncomfortable president," but added that he was "a dealmaker (with whom) progress could be made when face to face."

He said that the departure from the White House of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson - the latest in a series of high-profile exits - was "another sign of skittishness" in the US leadership.

The tense relationship between Merkel and Trump has showed no thaw despite her visit to the White House a year ago and their joint attendance of a two-day Group of 20 summit in Hamburg in July.
