And to think that there’s only two choices for the German people to choose from, her and the Marxist.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel insists she has no regrets about letting in a million migrants in one year despite her decision seeing her political support plummet
- Mrs Merkel has said her 2015 decision was right from a ‘humanitarian standpoint’
- More than a million migrants came to Germany after she opened country’s doors
- As a consequence, her party’s support has fallen and the right-wing has grown
- She also attacked EU nations that refused migrant quotas, saying it is ‘not on’
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she regrets nothing about her response to the migrant crisis of 2015.
More than a million people from across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East entered Germany two years ago after Mrs Merkel opened her country’s doors to Syrian refugees.
Her party’s support dropped as a consequence and led to a surge in support for the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which pollsters say could win up to 10 percent in the September election.
But in an interview with the Welt am Sonntag newspaper, the chancellor said she would do everything ‘the same way again’ if she had the opportunity.
