Germany has asked the new US ambassador in Berlin, outspoken Trump loyalist Richard Grenell, to clarify his reported comments on website Breitbart that he wants to empower European conservatives.
A German foreign ministry spokesman said Berlin had asked the US side for clarification and that its state secretary Andreas Michaelis would revisit the issue at a pre-arranged meeting with Grenell later this week.
Grenell, who took his Berlin post less than a month ago, was quoted by Breitbart London as speaking about his excitement at a European groundswell of conservative policies that had come because of the failed policies of the left. [ ]
Social Democratic lawmaker Thorsten Schäfer-Gümbel tweeted that European citizens dont need a Trump vassal to tell them who to vote for. A US ambassador who meddles in the democratic process to such a degree is simply misplaced.

“You are in no position to demand anything.”
“F___ You! That’s my clarification!”
The US representative should remain quiet when thuggish Germany through its control of the EU ignores voting rights of Europeans?
” We intend to airdrop weapons, chocolate and nylon stockings..”
German Foreign Ministry: “Hey, what do you think you are doing, telling our people the emperor has no clothes?!! This is not allowed!!”
Trump: “Hey, buddy, you better put some pants on, too.”
He should tell them “The opposite of everything the Nazi’s ever did”!
Since the late 1940s, our State Department has been pushing anti-Conservative internationalist views on nations around the world. Finally, the Trump Administration is starting to balance things out.
God Bless! An American Foreign Policy
Hilarious comment coming from the Social(its) Democrat spokesman considering how eagerly many Germans gobbled Obamas knob for years. Americans dont need Yurps telling them who to vote for.
European Lefties have lectured us CONSTANTLY on our politics. Now, they can just burst into flames and die howling.
Brain dead EU flunkies.
Verstehen, son of a bitch?
Clarification: You commies are going down.
Oh but youre our closest allies. Lol. Im so sick of the business reporters saying that. If they were they wouldnt have left these unfair trade practices in place long after they recovered. Screw them. Its a new day for as long as we have this potus.
Amen to that... I know who's a friend to our county by the way THEY TREAT US. Not by how some reporter's butt is kissed. If they're stealing from us on trade and NOT paying their share of defense they're NOT our dear friend.
