Germany accuses Theresa May of being ‘complicit’ in Trump policies putting Europe at risk

In a damning speech, Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel claimed all world leaders who fail to “determinedly oppose” the US President’s stance on climate change, religion and war are equally accountable.

He roundly condemned Mr Trump’s policies, and launched an implicit attack on the British Prime Minister – who has ignored calls to convince to keep the US in the Paris Agreement.

And Mr Gabriel made clear there is a growing political divide between the European Union and America, with the UK hanging on the sidelines.

Mr Gabriel said: “Whoever accelerates climate change by not protecting the environment adequately, whoever sells more weapons into war zones, whoever does not choose to resort to politics to resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk.

“The Trump administration wants to end climate deals, distribute more arms in crisis region and prevent people of some religions from traveling into [the US]. 

“If we Europeans don’t determinedly oppose this today, then the flows of migration into Europe will only become greater. 

“Whoever does not oppose these US policies is making themselves complicit.”

In contrast Ms May has talked ‘special relationship’ between the US and UK stronger.

She has also been accused of being Mr Trump’s “mole” in the EU, ahead of the negotiations. 

Mr Gabriel’s comments come after Angela Merkel also highlighted the dip in transatlantic relations.

She said: “The era in which we could fully rely on others is over to some extent.

“That’s what I experienced over the past several days.”
