"Wirklich beleidigend": Botschafter Grenell droht Deutschland mit Abzug der US-Truppen


Kurz vor den geplanten Europa-Reisen von US-Präsident Donald Trump verschärfen die USA ihre Drohungen mit einem Teilabzug ihrer Truppen aus Deutschland. Der für sein undiplomatisches Auftreten bekannte Botschafter der USA in Deutschland, Richard Grenell, sagte der dpa:
Es ist wirklich beleidigend zu erwarten, dass der US-Steuerzahler weiter mehr als 50.000 Amerikaner in Deutschland bezahlt, aber die Deutschen ihren Handelsüberschuss für heimische Zwecke verwenden.
