Angela Merkel Puts Trump on Notice to Uphold ‘Dignity of Man,’ Including Muslims

Germany’s Angela Merkel sent out a blunt statement to Donald Trump Wednesday morning, telling the president-elect that if he wanted to work well with his overseas’ partners – specifically, her – he would recognized the “dignity of man” regardless of Muslim root.

The warning came just hours after Trump, who’s vowed to crack down on borders in the United States and make sure those coming in the country aren’t carrying any Islamic-tied terror threat with them, won the White House.

From the Huffington Post:

“Angela Merkel has issued a carefully-worded response to Donald Trump’s election as US President, taking aim at the divisive rhetoric he used during the campaign.

“While Theresa May simply congratulated Trump on his victory, Merkel said she would only offer ‘close cooperation’ dependent on his commitment to equal rights.

“The German Chancellor, who has been the driving force behind the EU’s acceptance of hundreds of thousands of refugees, said her relationship with Trump would only succeed if he upheld “the dignity of man, independent of origin”.

“She said: ‘Germany and America are connected by values of democracy, freedom, and respect for the law and the dignity of man, independent of origin, skin colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or political views.

“‘I offer the next President of the United States close cooperation on the basis of these values.

“‘The partnership with the United States is and remains a foundation of German foreign policy.’”

Merkel also said she had watched the election results as they unfolded in America with “trepidation,” the news outlet reported.

Merkel made the remarks even while Germany’s been fighting off a massive inflow of Muslim refugees, some of whom in recent days have been disciplined, albeit lightly, for sexually assaulting young girls at community swimming pools.
