a price on carbon dioxide emissions. but we must also take into account the social impact. of ms merkel answered a range of questions at the annual press conference when asked whether she distance to. from trump's racist comments to us congresswoman she was very clear. i reject trump's comments and stand in solidarity with the women he attacked a strong signal that the chancellor often hailed as the leader of the free world hasn't given up her job just yet. the w.'s chief political editor was about to press conference welcome what was the chancellor's strongest message well foreign policy wise he also talks about iran but by far that statement about this congresswoman that she would display their self so in solidarity with them was a stronger statement she was also that was actually the final question of this
8:05 pm
press conference but early as she was asked about whether there still is the same value base between the united states and germany and this is what she had to say on . if you got 30 so let me say clearly that in my view america's strength lies precisely in the fact that it's a country where people have very different nationalities have contributed to the strength of america as a whole. so these are let me say comments that very much run counter to the firm impression i have i have to say that he does my little for me or did it go. just. so once again once again we see her differentiating that quite clearly between the president and his administration and america as a country i think is this is one of the clearest instances so far where were she seen we've seen her try quite clear to distance herself from certain what donald trump are saying and what are the chances have been concerns because of these bouts

of shaking what was your impression well she seemed very stable today i mean we saw her throughout this week where she turned 65 where she also saw quite a few political triumphs also in seeing all that are funded on her former defense minister becoming the new e.u. commission chief throughout all the ceremonies that went along with that we saw her sit down and use a tear which was her very kind of pragmatic way of solving that issue she clearly was having and probably still is having but she also is remaining rather cagey about what the exact source of this is at the same time making quite clear that she's saying you know me in the sense of if i couldn't do this i wouldn't be doing this. interesting the german public here also largely sees this as a very private message matter we've seen quite a bit of polling on that but we saw a lot more wild speculation internationally on this particular issue of her health . she says she's going to go until 2021 do you think she will last that long

well actually leaving aside the health issue for a moment even when you look at the political press or governing coalition with the social democrats on the right now it looks more likely that she won't actually serve the full course until 2021 the social democrats of have one political nervous breakdown after another the epitome of this is actually those 16 delegates members of the european parliament who are in government the social democrats right now in germany not voting for the 1st german. and the 1st woman to lead the commission in decades so a lot of internal political pressure here which in all actions coming out that could actually become a breaking point i daresay actually i wouldn't put my money on it for now that's for sure i wasn't aware of any of us who put our money these troubled times from our. g.w. chief political editor thank you. but let's take
