BERLIN http://www.washingtoncapitalsteamstore.com/adidas-jaromir-jagr-jersey , May 30 (Xinhua) -- Political tensions between Germany and the U.S government continue to come to a head as U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to tweet.

He wrote: "We have a massive trade deficit with Germany" and that what Germany pays "is far less than they should on NATO and military" which he deems bad for the United States, promising to change the situation.

The comments come as German Chancellor Angela Merkel told an election rally on Sunday that Germany may no longer be able rely on the United States and Britain and added that the EU "must now fight for its own future."

Disagreement within the German coalition government on how to deal with the U.S president is also mounting. Germany's Minister for Foreign Affairs Sigmar Gabriel strongly criticized President Trump on Monday accusing him of "short sighted policies which stand against the European Union and are weakening the West."

Martin Schulz, the head of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) and chancellor candidate, also raised strong concerns about Trump's focus on "political blackmail instead of international diplomacy."

However http://www.washingtoncapitalsteamstore.com/adidas-jakub-vrana-jersey , Michael Grosse-Broemte, a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) politician, although critical of Trump, is strongly against worsening relations between the EU and the United States. The CDU politician believes the transatlantic relationship is important with or without President Trump http://www.washingtoncapitalsteamstore.com/adidas-ilya-samsonov-jersey , saying "As Europeans we shouldn't allow the Donald Trump logic to affect us."

Eric Schweitzer, the president of the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry, agreed with Grosse-Broemte and told the German newspaper Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung on Tuesday: "German trade with the United States is worth over 150 million euros (168 million U.S. dollars) per year."

Political tensions have been rising since the U.S. president was inaugurated in January 2017. Recent tense meetings at both NATO and G7 served to add fuel to the political fire.

Trump refused to agree to the 2015 Paris climate accord, reiterated past claims that other NATO members were not reaching their military spending commitment of 2 percent GDP (gross domestic product) and infamously described German trade practices as "bad http://www.washingtoncapitalsteamstore.com/adidas-evgeny-kuznetsov-jersey , very bad."
