Merkel: We need to think about a world without US leadership




Europe should consider a new reality in which the United States may not aspire to the role of the world leader, as it was before, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel in an interview with European newspapers, writes Guardian.





Europeans grew up with the knowledge that America aspires to be a world power, Merkel emphasized.

“If the United States would now want to stop playing this role of its own free will, we would have to seriously think about it,” said the chancellor.

Commenting on the decision of US President Donald Trump to reduce the American contingent in Germany, Merkel noted that they help protect not only Germany and the European part of NATO but also American interests.

Note that the United States began to abandon the role of the world gendarme after Trump came to the White House with the concept of “America above all.” The new leader began to gradually withdraw the American contingent from different countries.
