If the headlines of their tabloid newspapers are any indication, Germans are going ballistic over President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord. “Earth to Trump: F*** you!” was the clear message from the Berliner Kurier, which is currently enjoying international fame as a result of its bold, yet vulgar statement.
However, this particular newspaper has always gone for shock value. Just a couple of months ago, the tabloid published an article about Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu, calling him one of the world’s craziest leaders, and using the derogatory Hitler-esque word “Führer” to describe him.
Of course, Trump-haters on Twitter gave kudos to the paper, with one user saying, “We completely agree with you Germany. Our deepest, deepest apologies.” Others followed suit.
We completely agree with you Germany. Our deepest, deepest apologies…

German Chancellor Angela Merkel had strong words for President Trump, but she struggled to keep it civil, using milder language like “deeply regrettable, and by that I am really measuring myself,” she told reporters. “We need this Paris accord to preserve our creation. Nothing can and will stop us.”
Making his announcement on Thursday, Trump said he would begin negotiations to either re-enter the Paris agreement under new terms or start a new deal which would be much more fair to the U.S. and its workers.
However, Merkel refused to look at any paths other than the one that leads to destruction. “I am deeply convinced that this is a path for the good of all people, which will also generate a dynamic for more prosperity and opportunities in the world,” she stated.
Even while the citizens of her own country fear for their lives from the relentless barrage of refugees who refuse to assimilate with the Germans and instead commit atrocious crimes against them on a daily basis as they take over their cities and laugh at their laws, Merkel prefers to focus on “the big challenge of humankind such as climate change and overcome it successfully.”
To that end, French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni and Merkel issued a joint statement saying the Paris climate accord is irreversible and that they oppose a renegotiation of the deal.
