German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel criticized US President Donald Trump’s conduct and stated that the country’s current situation concerning relations with the US is difficult and complicated. Gabriel responded to Trump’s most recent Twitter rage stating that “it is inappropriate that we are now communicating with each other between a beer tent and Twitter.”

However, Gabriel asserted that he believes that the ties will soon improve and noted that “the United States are older and bigger than the current conflict and so I think we will return to good relations in the future.” The ‘beer tent’ comment was a slam at German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told Bavarian leaders in a beer tent that Europe can no longer rely on the US.
