Trump Slams Germany Amid Border Policy Outcry: Migrants ‘Violently Changed Their Culture’

However, "the European project is at risk", and "we have a particular responsibility", she said. But it showed the bloc is trying to accommodate a new, anti-establishment government in Italy, as well as Berlin where Merkel's coalition partner issued an ultimatum for an EU-wide deal on migration.

US President Donald Trump said migrants were violently changing Europe's culture.

While his party supports a European solution, he added, he wants to be ready to begin turning back any migrant whose asylum process is pending in another European Union country, or who has been registered as arriving there. "Where did the president get the statement that crime was way up in Germany under the Merkel plan for admitting refugees?".

As Berlin is now in the midst of a coalition crisis over a controversial plan to to turn migrants away at the border, German media on Monday slammed US President Donald Trump over a tweet claiming that migration policies are causing Germans to turn against their government.

With neither leader budging, the conflict escalated over the weekend, leading to fears that the government would collapse.

Tripoli already runs migrant camps in Libya where the European Union pays the United Nations migration and refugee agencies to help resettle people to Europe legally or deport them to other African countries.

In terms of the foreign and defense policy, the two countries called for a European debate on new formats, such as an EU Security Council, and opportunities for closer coordination within the EU and in external fora.

As interior minister, Seehofer has drawn up a 63-point plan for tackling migration to Germany.

Merkel, who has led Europe's largest economy since 2005, was widely seen as unassailable in the run-up to elections last September. Crime in Germany is way up. He added: "Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!' The BBC and the Guardian did mention this, but as ever their reports were nearly identical, missing out the immigration scandal completely". In fact, he threatened to order the federal police to implement this rule - which is consistent with German asylum law - without asking the chancellor, unless she endorsed his position by Monday.

Merkel opposes any unilateral move by German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who is also CSU chairman, that would reverse her 2015 open-door policy on migrants and undermine her authority. "The whole development must be seen against the background of upcoming elections in Bavaria, the homeland of the CSU, in fall".

NELSON: The interior minister and his party, which is facing a major challenge from far-right populists in upcoming regional elections, say they will unilaterally prevent migrants from crossing Bavaria's global borders if Berlin doesn't act. There are claims that Merkel's politics created the political space for the AfD.

But they differ on its make-up, and Merkel faces the restraint that the German parliament must debate and vote on any military mission overseas.

Merkel is under strong pressure from her conservative allies to take a harder line on migration.

European stocks, and particularly the German market, have been hit once again over recent days by the possibility of political turmoil in Germany caused by disagreements within the ruling coalition over the country's migrant policy.

One possible scenario: In Bavaria, Seehofer could order Germany's border police to close the worldwide borders to refugees.

"It would be nearly a miracle if she emerges a victor from the next European Union summit", Die Welt, a German daily, said.

The leaders met to prepare for a summit of European Union leaders on 28 and 29 June, with Macron keen to push through wide-ranging reforms to strengthen the eurozone and insulate the single currency union from future crises, while Merkel has been more cautious.
