Abstract


As the Trump administration settles in, and attention turns to the September parliamentary elections in Germany, where is the U.S.-German relationship heading? The fellows of the Transatlantic Academy have spent the past eight months focusing on this topic. Their report Suspicious Minds: U.S.-German Relations in the Trump Era argues that the relationship, while close at the government level in recent years under Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Barack Obama, is challenged by underlying divisions on economic policies, security policies, and the role of German leadership in the European Union. The presidency of Donald Trump, who has questioned fundamental principles of U.S. foreign policy that have been shared by both parties and go back decades, may dramatically worsen U.S.-German relations. The fellows offer recommendations for U.S., German, and European policymakers going forward.



The report’s authors will discuss their conclusions in an afternoon panel at The German Marshall Fund of the United States.
