Germany does not want to be our friend anymore. Thanks Trump!

Oh yeah, we're not going to be friends.
Courtesy of HuffPo: 

In their campaign program for the German election, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives have dropped the term “friend” in describing the relationship with the United States. 

Four years ago, the joint program of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and its Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), referred to the United States as Germany’s “most important friend” outside of Europe. 

The 2013 program also described the “friendship” with Washington as a “cornerstone” of Germany’s international relations and talked about strengthening transatlantic economic ties through the removal of trade barriers. 

But the words “friend” and “friendship” are missing from the latest election program - entitled “For a Germany in which we live well and happily” - which Merkel and CSU leader Horst Seehofer presented on Monday ahead of a Sept. 24 election. 

Instead, the United States is described as Germany’s “most important partner” outside of Europe. CDU officials were not immediately available to comment on the change in wording.

You know one the themes of Trump's campaign was that President Obama was not garnering trust among our allies around the world.

Just another example of projection on his part apparently. 

Currently our allies around the world are wondering if Americans have lost their damn minds, and whether to trust the new president with anymore classified information.

Those were certainly not their concerns a year ago at this time.

    I don't trust Trump as far as I can throw him and I'm an American. He does not represent me and I detest his black soul - as I think so do the majority of Americans throughout the country.

    The world assuredly doesn't like or respect him! He's brought our country down and needs to be impeached!

    God bless Ms. Merkel of Germany! She is a far stronger woman than The Donald calculated. Good for her!

    He can't go to Britain without sneaking in because they've said they'll collectively moon him and he knows they will. So much for his dream of a trip down the Mall in a golden carriage with Her Majesty.

      I seriously doubt Queen Elizabeth would have provided him the ride in her carriage and that would be another reason to cancel his trip there!

      She loves President Obama, so we can be sure she doesn't feel the same way about Trump.

      Trump is an asshole and she knows it! Remember too that she has met and gotten to know many, many folks throughout her life and I imagine reads them pretty well.

      I know I've gotten better at it as I've aged, but assume her to be much better at it due to her long life and experiences.

    By this time , my money says that no one in their right mind would trust trump or any of his
    Heads of state understand "keep your friends close and your enemies closer".
    trump will be humored, but not trusted. He has doomed us while he is in office.He will not be taken serious, other the faux news and hate groups.

      Representing the problems of the USA which led us to Donald Trump as ugh, President. Of course we must be fat, drunk and willfully uneducated. Why else did we end up with such a mistake?

    I will believe we have lost our friendship with Deutscheland when they ask us to remove our military forces and to leave their country. Up until that moment happens I think someone is pulling our chain.

    1. No they still see as partners, so military bases get to stay.

      We are now just too fucking stupid to be considered a friend.

    Remember the good old days of Bush when the worst our leader did to piss off Angela Merkel was to give her an awkward shoulder massage? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eTQY1Aw9zcs

    I saw a short puff piece about Bush, Laura, and Jay Leno visiting them at their ranch. I actually smiled and found myself having nostalgia for Bush. I felt insane.
