Despite Being Close Allies, Merkel & Trump Disagree On Key Policies

Germany and the US remain close allies, but since the election of Donald Trump, disagreements have emerged on key policies. Germany is a firm believer in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 deal between Iran and the EU, Russia, China and the US in which Tehran pledged to restrict its nuclear program and not to develop nuclear weapons in return for the relaxation of UN, EU and US sanctions.

Trump has characterized the JCPOA as the "worst deal ever" and accused the Iranian government of failing to abide by its provisions. The president has refused to certify the agreement, which is required every 120 days, but has stopped short of formally scrapping the deal. However, he has threatened to re-impose secondary sanctions on countries doing business with Iran, which would essentially scupper the agreement. Germany and its EU partners would like to prevent this.

Trump accuses the EU and Germany in particular of maintaining unfair economic policies toward the US, citing as evidence America's $64-billion-dollar (€52.5 billion) trade deficit as evidence of the alleged inequity. He has threatened to impose tariffs on imports of European steel to the US as of May 1 and has singled out German cars as a potential target of other, further punitive action. More broadly, Trump's economic protectionism has led to the suspension of negotiations over the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
