Nigel Farage, the man behind “Brexit”, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policy to allow millions of immigrants into Europe is the worst decision by a European leader in 70 years.
In an interview with FOX Business host Stuart Varney, Farage described the meeting between President Donald Trump and Merkel as a clash of cultures. Unlike Trump, Merkel is a believer of supranationalism and welcomes as many as possible immigrants to Europe, Farage said.
He also hit at the German leader for wanting U.S. protection through NATO but not willing to pay for it. Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, only allocates 1.2 percent of GDP for NATO, which is below the expected 2 percent, Farage adds.
On trade, Farage said that Germany was able to build a huge trade surplus with the U.S because of the weakness of the euro, which is being dragged down by weaker economies in the EU.
