Merkel rebuffs Trump invitation to G-7 summit

The president wants a landmark event, but the German chancellor ‘cannot agree’ to travel due to ongoing pandemic.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has rebuffed Donald Trump’s invitation to attend a G-7 summit, which the president is keen to portray as a symbol of a return to normality from the upheaval of the coronavirus crisis.

"The federal chancellor thanks President Trump for his invitation to the G-7 summit at the end of June in Washington. As of today, considering the overall pandemic situation, she cannot agree to her personal participation, to a journey to Washington," German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told POLITICO on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Merkel's way... of telling President Trump to do something "anatomically impossible", because of her wanting to distance herself as far as possible from a President who has become "Kryptonite" to the EU-ers still remaining in Europe, and Germany specifically.

Would it be ok if I sent my gardener's wife's hairdresser's ex-brother-in-law in my place? He loves golf.
