Make-in-India outreach has attracted many German SMEs: Modi

"We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation & military".

These divergences were aired at a summit of G7 leaders in Sicily at the weekend at which Trump found himself isolated over his threat to ditch the 2015 Paris accord aimed at slowing climate change.

But, while Trump received a warm welcome in Saudi Arabia and Israel, he left behind a bitter taste in Europe after the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and the G7 get-together of the world's richest powers in Sicily.

Germany, until recently Washington's closest partner in Europe, was particularly discomfited, and Merkel wasted no time in warning German voters that the United States can no longer be relied upon as before. While underlining the need for continued good relations with US, Britain and Russian Federation, she added that "we Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands". Merkel warned at the weekend that the days when Europe could totally rely on its allies - namely the USA - were perhaps in the past.

Merkel is unlikely to warm to Trump as she did to former president Barack Obama.

"We want the European Union to become stronger and India will play a positive role towards that through the medium of Germany", he told reporters at a joint briefing with Merkel, who hosts Chinese Premier Li Keqiang tomorrow. Europe faces several internal disagreements. But Trump says Germany's trade surplus hurts USA interests, and he has criticized what he deems as Germany's low defense spending. They wonder why the leader of Germany's most influential global ally seems more willing to criticize their country than nations with questionable human rights records. If the current USA administration has decided that it no longer needs to rely on allies as much as in the past, those allies are deciding that they can not rely on the us anymore and are starting to forge their own arrangements, which will diminish the us ability to influence their actions and decisions. Germanys Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel followed her and blasted the United States, saying the Trump administrations "short-sighted policies. stand against the interest of the European Union".

Merkel's rhetoric is clearly meant to imply that as the trans-Atlantic relationship grows weaker, the European Union will grow stronger. Xi grabbed headlines with a message in support of globalization and the fight against man-made climate change. And, in this election campaign, she has been weaker on policy than ever.

British anti-EU politician Nigel Farage, who has built a bond with Trump, accused Merkel and Juncker of triggering a row with Washington deliberately to further the "anti-democratic" goal of a German-led European state.

Leading Social Democrats said Monday that Merkel should have openly opposed Trump from the start rather than trying to work with him at first.

"Merkel and Juncker actually want to see the Americans leaving Europe".
