German Chancellor Angela Merkel responded to Donald Trump’s criticisms of the United Nations and multilateralism.
Below are some of Angela Merkel’s quotes on the matter.
“The current US President thinks that multilateralism is not the answer to our problems. He only assumes that there can only be one winner in any given situation. Unlike me, he does not believe in win-win situations and he, therefore, questions multilateral systems that go far beyond Europe like the Climate Protection Agreement; the functioning of the United Nations.” – Angela Merkel, PressTV, 30 September 2018
“I believe that destroying something without having developed something new is extremely dangerous.” – Angela Merkel, Daily Nation, 30 September 2018
