Trump took aim at Germany after Merkel suggested the EU can no longer rely on the US


Days after attending his first G7 summit, President Trump tweeted out Tuesday that Germany, a central country in the European Union and a steadfast U.S. ally, "will change" in regards to its trade deficit and NATO. 

Trump's tweet came after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said this weekend that Germany and the EU can no longer "completely" rely on the United States for support. 

"I experienced that in the last a few days, and therefore I can only say that we Europeans must really take our fate into our own hands, of course in friendship with the United States and in friendship with Great Britain and as good neighbors wherever it is possible, also with Russia and also with all the other countries," Merkel said.

Trump is also set to make other decisions that could potentially impact relationships in Europe.
