Angela Merkel: EU cannot completely rely on US and Britain any more

It seems that way.
However many Brexiters are regretting their x.

I’m not sure that the British press barons are truly reflecting what AM actually said. They have been somewhat ‘economical’ with the truth in order to reflect badly on the EU (as it suits their ‘strong and stable’ patron TM).
Is this an attempt to influence British voting intentions? I strongly believe so.
