Angela Merkel: New World Order ‘Under Threat’ Because Of Trump

German chancellor Angela Merkel has admitted that the New World Order is ‘under threat’ due to the rise of Trump and other populist leaders. 

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the German leader decried the rise in protectionism and the rejection of globalism currently sweeping across Europe and the U.S.

“Frankly speaking, the country I have the honor to represent and where I am chancellor has difficulties. And polarization is something that we see in our country as well, which we haven’t had for decades,” Merkel said. reports: She attributed increasing populism and polarization to both the euro zone crisis and migration crisis seen in Europe over the last few years following an influx of refugees, but said Germany would not shrink from the world stage.

“Germany wishes to be a country that lends its contribution in the future to solve the problems of the world together, we think that shutting ourselves off and isolating ourselves will not lead us into a good future. Protectionism is not the proper answer,” she said.

Merkel is just the latest leader at Davos to criticize a protectionist and isolationist stance towards the world’s problems. Such comments appear to be directed towards President Donald Trump who has adopted an “America First” stance in his foreign and economic policies.

‘Not learned the lessons from history’

In contrast, Merkel said the answer to the world’s problems was to see multilateral solutions instead of a “unilateral, protectionist course” of action.

At the start of her address, Merkel referenced both world wars in the 20th century, saying that the “political actors involved had almost sleepwalked into a horrendous situation.” She said there was a danger that the world had not learned the lessons from history.

She said the foundation of the United Nations (UN) was a multilateral and cooperative solution that was borne out of World War II, adding that a multilateral response helped to resolve the global financial crisis of 2008-2009.

German coalition talks

Merkel’s comments come amid continued speculation over Germany, and indeed Merkel’s, political future after months of negotiations aimed at forming a coalition government. This after no one party gained a majority in last September’s election.

Merkel’s conservative alliance of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and Christian Social Union (CSU) first attempted to form a coalition with the Green party and pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP), but it failed after the parties couldn’t agree on various policies ranging from immigration to euro zone integration.

With no prospect of an alliance, Merkel’s coalition partner in several former governments, the Social Democratic party (SPD) led by Martin Schulz, did a U-turn on an earlier pledge to voters not to go into government with the CDU-CSU again and began talks with Merkel’s conservative alliance in January.

The decision could backfire on the SPD which performed badly in the last election due to its supporters’ disapproval of its alliance with the CDU-CSU. As such, the SPD is likely to extract many concessions from the CDU-CSU during upcoming negotiations in return for its support in government.

There is also doubt over whether Merkel, known as “Mutti” (mother) in Germany, will see out the whole of what will be her fourth term as chancellor and there is speculation on who her successor might be.

Merkel said Wednesday that she would continue to hold talks aimed at forming a government “as quickly as possible.” Speaking on Germany’s economy, she said it had enjoyed 11 years of consecutive growth but needed to modernize and make more progress in terms of digitization.

  1. America first. That is the true and proper stance. Once all is well at home and prosperity returns to this once great nation, then they can look upon the shit hole countries that prefer to rage war and corruption.

    1. That’s a total joke. And now America is not even considered #1 as the leader of free nations. We’ve dropped to #6, courtesy of the greedy Trump and the Republicans. Wait till you see the upcoming stock market crash. And the loss of jobs and slight devaluation of the dollar after the govt. shutdown is ONLY the beginning. You will be made a fool of. AMERICA is the shit-hole that continues wage war for profit to enrich those invested in the military industrial complex and to fill politicians’ pockets. The CORRUPTION is more rampant in this administration than any other in History.

      1. you’re an inbred idiot

      2. Lol, that’s the Bushes and Obama you are describing, not Trump, but you know that and are being deceitful, or you don’t and are an idiot!

  2. This is the reason why Trump is disliked! He has been preventing NWO.
    We would become slaves to the Elitists.
    The sheep are following the enemy because they don’t know what the Liberals Agenda really is.

  3. Merkle, you are condemning Germany to be a Muslim shit hole, but One World Order is causing you to do this. Can’t you think without someone else telling you what to do?? Thank God, many other Countries care more for their citizens then you do. USA, Sweden, Britian, Japan, China, Russia all realize what is happening in Europe and are doing what they can to save their own Countries by protecting their own borders. What is your excuse??

  4. Merkel is a commie Jewish arsehole. All fact. Commie fair enough, but the extremist left Jews are white people haters, and the mother was one.

  5. NWO, liberalism, socialism, globalism are the worst things that could happen. United States, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Russia won’t bow down to this new world order bullshit headed by the UN, soros and a bunch of useless puppet governments. Being Canadian I have never felt so disgusted with my government and its current policies.
