Germany’s Merkel says America-first attitude will hurt US

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that she understands the support in the United States for the America-first attitude that got Donald Trump elected but that in the end it will only hurt the country.

At a forum Wednesday organized by Germany’s Handelsblatt newspaper, Merkel said many in the U.S. see globalization negatively, with some countries profiting at the expense of others.

But she said her view is that everyone can win.

She said, “An America that doesn’t bother with anything in the world but only with itself will not be a great America.”

She added that though she has differences of opinion with Trump, he fought a “hard campaign” to become the Republican candidate and then win the election and “that deserves the necessary respect.”
