On Tuesday, in a speech to the UN General Assembly, Trump questioned the United Nations, which propagates the goal of international cooperation. “We reject the ideology of globalism,” Trump had said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned today (30.09.2018) against the danger of ending the UN, despite its imperfections, and criticized the words of US President Donald Trump, who in a recent speech questioned the multilateral world order.

“Of course, the UN is anything but perfect, of course we want a reform of the Security Council for years, but destroying something before developing something new is dangerous,” said the leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) event in the monastery of Ottobeuren, in Bavaria. “This can destroy our order of peace faster than we can imagine,” he said, with a look at US President Donald Trump, who rejects multilateralism.

Trump: “We reject the ideology of the global”

At the start of the UN general debate in New York last Tuesday, Trump ruled in favor of prioritizing national interests over a global world order. “We reject the ideology of the global, and embrace the doctrine of patriotism,” Trump said.

Merkel added that unlike her, the US president does not consider multilateralism as a solution to problems and conceives only the possibility that there is a winner, instead of situations beneficial to all parties.

In that sense, Merkel highlighted the successes of the European Union as a multilateral alliance, referred to the euro as a “guarantee for peace” and advocated strengthening Europe.
