German Interior Minister about Merkel: “I can’t work with the woman anymore”
The position of Angela Merkel is becoming increasingly problematic in Germany. Especially the cooling relationship between Merkel’s CDU and its coalition partner CSU, which is now below zero, according to new information given by newspaper ‘Die Welt’.
German Interior Minister and leader of the CSU, Horst Seehofer, allegedly said to fellow legislators: “I can’t work with the woman anymore.”
Seehofer spoke the words twice during a ‘behind-the-scenes meeting’ with cabinet members of his party and the head of its regional group in Germany’s Federal Parliament, Alexander Dobrindt.
According to Die Welt, the words were spoken out of anger and frustration, or emotional exhaustion.
The incident took place the day after Seehofer spoke with Merkel about tougher border checks, as proposed in his “Masterplan for Migration”.
Intention of the migration plan is to refuse letting in refugees who are already registered in another European country.
