John Kerry says it is ‘inappropriate’ for Donald Trump to ‘be stepping into’ the politics of foreign countries

January 16, 2017

  Donald Trump is taking a little heat for wading into Germany’s politics by criticizing Angela Merkel’s refugee policy. John Kerry is the latest to wade in on this contrived controversy, here is more:

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday it was “inappropriate” for Donald Trump to insert himself into the politics of foreign countries, referencing the president-elect’s recent criticism over German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s refugee policy.

“I thought frankly it was inappropriate for a president-elect of the United States to be stepping into the politics of other countries in a quite direct manner,” Kerry said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, adding that he specifically disapproved of Trump’s attack on Merkel’s policy of accepting scores of migrants into Germany during the ongoing Syrian civil war.

“I think we have to be very careful about suggesting that one of the strongest leaders in Europe and most important players with respect to where we are heading … made one mistake or another, I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to be commenting on that,” Kerry said.

  He did not like the “direct manner” in which Donald Trump stepped into the politics of “one of the strongest leaders in Europe.” Apparently he prefers the indirect manner Barack Obama used against one of the strongest leaders in the Middle East when he tried to influence the outcome of the Israeli election.

According to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), the State Department gave $349,276 in U.S. taxpayer-funded grants to a political group in Israel to build a campaign operation, which subsequently was used to try to influence Israelis to vote against conservative Benjamin Netanyahu in the March 2015 election for prime minister.

      Sorry about that! 🙂 These people really do not see the irony, it is either that or they do not think the people will see their hypocrisy.

    What is funny is that many considered Germany a vassal state of the US. The globalist want the refugees to replace the German workers. Trump however is aligned with Nigel Farage who is a Euro skeptic and leader of the Brexit movement.

    Trump’s comments were in the German publication Weld.

      Merkel (who’s popularity is close to Hilly’s) says it’s the American’s fault for the refugee problems – and I think she’s pretty much right about that (although she’s had a hand in in as well). The US has been used by the ‘flippant globalist’ to cause ruin and chaos – taking over leaderships of certain countries -Syria being one- and using the administration to do it’s bidding. Another reason they didn’t want Trump in – no ‘Winners’ allowed only ‘losers’ to keep the Countries as 3 world as possible.

        It is going to be interesting to see how Trump actually handles all of this because I still can’t shake the feeling that if those behind the veil didn’t want him in the White House he wouldn’t be there. But perhaps this is one time they were foiled, if so it is only temporary.

        Yes, I know what you mean Steve, but sometimes a vail can be pulled over the eyes of the enemy and foil their plans of evil – turning things around for good! I just know that I sense we’ve had answered prayers and to go w/ it!

        Yes, it could just be that Trump actually beat the shadow government. If this is so he had better watch his back!

    Especially when he plans NOT to do this:

    Another reason to imprison that group!

    This criticism from a man who has trouble riding a bicycle in the park in clear weather.
    So why doesn’t he join his Iranian in-laws with counting their score from the Cairbama deal we ask, because regardless of which administration runs DC there is plenty more monopoly money where that came from. Paraphrasing Willie Sutton, Why do you stay in Washington Lurch? Because thats where the money is.

    btw you’d think that word ‘inappropriate’ would get stuck on his tongue/lips before it was allowed to come out!
