Merkel blasts Trump’s attack on Democratic congresswomen

BERLIN, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has lashed out at a recent attack by US President Donald Trump against four US Democratic congresswomen.

Voicing solidarity with four US Democratic congresswomen, Merkel said at a press conference in Berlin on Friday that Trump’s broadside against them goes against “what makes America great”.

Merkel said: “I firmly distance myself from (the attacks) and I feel solidarity with” the four US congresswomen.” “The strength of America lies in that people from different (origins) contributed to what makes the country great,” she said.

The US president was widely accused of racism for saying that the congresswomen should “go back” to the countries they came from.
