This 9 June 2018 video from the USA says about itself:
Politicians in Germany are wanting to remove Donald Trump’s ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, after he publicly came out and said that part of his job was to promote the conservative party in Germany. Not only are ambassadors not allowed to get involved in politics in the countries that they are sent to, but this is not Grenell’s first time meddling in the business of Germans, and now they want him gone. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
The American ambassador in Germany also warns about sanctions against companies that cooperate with the Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2. The newspaper Bild am Sonntag has seen letters in which ambassador Grenell warns companies.
As the video says, Donald Trump’s ambassador in Germany Grenell was in the news earlier for using US American taxpayers’ money to support far-right political parties in Europe.
Earlier his colleague in the Netherlands did the same.
“We want to emphasize that companies involved in Russian energy exports deal with a sector in which there is a significant risk of sanctions”, writes Grenell in the letter. …
The Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 is currently being constructed in the Baltic Sea between Russia and Germany. The US argues that Europe is thereby becoming more dependent on Russia and that Ukraine is losing power as a transit country. The US also wants to supply its own gas to Europe.
Earlier, the US ambassador to the Netherlands, Pete Hoekstra, warned that sanctions threaten. …
Mr Hoekstra was in the news earlier for falsely claiming there were no go-zones in the Netherlands where cars and politicians were set on fire ‘because of radical Islam’; and then calling these, his own, sayings, ‘fake news’.
No politicians are set on fire in the Netherlands. Dutch politicians’ cars ARE sometimes set on fire. But not by ‘radical Islam’. By right-wing xenophobes who think these politicians are too leftist and too pro-refugees. Like happened in Oostknollendam in 2015.
The US delegate to the EU also noted that President Trump has “many different instruments” to counteract the construction of the gas pipeline. “We have not yet made every effort to undermine or even stop the project.”
