Four years later, however, the once-unthinkable suddenly seems very real.

Camerota, however, argued that Trump's recent tweet, criticizing the United States' trade deficit and Germany's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and defense payments point to a feud. "Very bad for the U.S. This will change". In the case of Germany, it's mostly due to the weak euro.

Spicer went on to say that the two heads of state "get along very well" and that Trump "has a lot of respect" for Merkel. Only Germany's robust economy has saved her from humiliation in the last round of local elections - often an indicator of how federal elections will turn out.

After a frosty meeting with Merkel in Washington in March - which he initially described as "GREAT" - he launched a diatribe the following day, accusing Germany of owing "vast sums of money" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the United States.

"The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out", Merkel said, according to AFP.

In Berlin, Trump's attacks on Germany have raised questions about the future of the alliance.

"The United States are older and bigger than the current conflict", he said, adding that relations would improve. Merkel rejects most of his criticism as baseless. "Today, the United States is heading into a direction on key issues that seems diametrically opposite of where Europe is heading".

Just two days after Angela Merkel said the European Union needed to take charge of its own destiny and could no longer completely rely on the U.S. and Britain, Germany's main political parties are all leaping into the fray to criticize United States president Donald Trump and his policies.

He had begun attacking Germany and Merkel during his election campaign previous year. On Monday, Schultz also tweeted that the "best response to Donald Trump is a stronger Europe". "But if you look overall, there's probably going to need to be a rebalancing of who's spending, who's saving, what are the overall trade patterns", Obama said during a press conference with Merkel. "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. Dirsus cautioned that Germany remained reliant on the U.S., especially in terms of its military. Merkel's Social Democratic predecessor, Gerhard Schroeder, publicly disavowed George W Bush's invasion of Iraq in a transatlantic rift that Merkel worked to fix upon her election in 2005. That would nearly double the current budget - but it would still be dwarfed by the $664bn the U.S. spends every year.

"Chancellor Merkel, she called a couple days ago on the Europeans to take their fate in their own hands", Wittig responded. But she also won't be able to simply ignore him.
