>> Donald Trump's victory in the U.S. election last week came as a big shock to America's allies around the world. But in few places has the shock been as painful as in Germany. I'm Noah Barkin, Special Correspondent for Europe at Reuters in Berlin. Germany and the U.S. have had a special relationship ever since the end of World War II.
She is likely to have an adversarial relationship with a President Trump. During the U.S. election campaign, Donald Trump invoked the German Chancellor to insult his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, calling her America's Merkel. He also derided Merkel's policy of welcoming hundreds of thousands of refugees as insane. Merkel's third term as chancellor will end next year, she has yet to announce whether she will run for a fourth term.
But her aides have told us that Trump's election win and Britain's decision to leave the European Union back in June have if anything reinforced her desire to continue.>> Danke.>>
