  • President Donald Trump could push Germany into the arms of Russia and China, veteran German diplomat Wolfgang Ischinger warns.
  • He’s encouraging Germans not to give up on the United States because of Trump.
  • Trump has repeatedly attacked Germany for its trade surplus and lack of defense spending, unsettling a country that has long viewed America as its closest ally outside of Europe and a bulwark of its security and defense.

BERLIN (Reuters) – The longer Donald Trump stays in office, the higher the risk that anti-American forces will gain the upper hand in Germany and push it into the arms of Russia and China, veteran German diplomat Wolfgang Ischinger said in an interview.

The chairman of the Munich Security Conference and former ambassador to Washington was speaking to Reuters days before the publication of his book “World in Danger”, in which he urges Germans not to give up on the United States because of Trump, while also pressing them to accept more global responsibility.
