Trump is not America. That is why Germany will remain the current European nation for the USA.
A Response to Jörg Lau’s and Bernd Ulrich’s America Criticism
Although for more than 70 years common values were invoked to keep the transatlantic partnership together, now is the time to assert shared U.S.-German interests. For this reason, we, the signatories, take issue with the recent argument offered by Jorg Lau and Bernd Ulrich in DIE ZEIT(“Something New in the West”, ZEIT 43/17) which argues in effect for a German led decoupling of the West from the United States. We are not making a sentimental case for transatlanticism; rather we assert that we have shared interests.
