Default Merkel reminds Trump of Geneva Convention's refugee policy: reports

Merkel reminded Trump of Geneva Convention's refugee policy: reports | TheHill

Quote:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized President Donald Trumpís executive order on immigration and reminded him in a phone call on Saturday of the policy of the Geneva Convention regarding refugees, according to reports.

ďThe Geneva refugee convention requires the international community to take in war refugees on humanitarian grounds. All signatory states are obligated to do. The German government explained this policy in their call yesterday,Ē the chancellorís spokesman, Steffen Seiberg, said in a statement.
When the German Chancellor has to remind the American President of his treaty obligations...

Treaty's trump all US Law EXCEPT the Constitution. This supersedes Trump's Executive Order.

The US used to be a country others would look up to.

Angela, like most of Europe's leaders, have their own refugee problems. To the point of soon to be ex Chancellor. Over half her population is fed up with refugees. No doubt since Australia was permitted to pass refugees along to the US, she may have looked at that as a possible solution. Now a bubble burst.

Good job, President Trump.

I am betting Jimbo is jumping from thread to thread trying to downplay every issue Trump has caused with his stupid plan. Give it up Jimbo. Look around the country and the world. He blew it. Americans other than right wingers don't support this crap.
