Donald Trump Bashes Time Magazine, Says Angela Merkel Is Ruining Germany

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is slamming Time Magazine’s decision to name German Chancellor Angela Merkel as the Person of the Year.

He blasted Time for going with the person “who is ruining Germany.”

The magazine praised Merkel for opening her country to Syrian refugees, a policy that Donald Trump has strongly criticized as one that the United States should not follow.

Time writes:

In late summer, Merkel’s government threw open Germany’s doors to a pressing throng of refugees and migrants; a total of 1 million asylum seekers are expected in the country by the end of December. It was an audacious act that, in a single motion, threatened both to redeem Europe and endanger it, testing the resilience of an alliance formed to avoid repeating the kind of violence tearing asunder the Middle East by working together

Time also wrote that:

The most generous, openhearted gesture of recent history blossomed from Germany, the country that within living memory (and beyond, as long as there’s a History Channel) blew apart the European continent, and then the world, by taking to gruesome extremes all the forces its Chancellor strives to hold in check: nationalism, nativism, self-righteousness, reversion to arms.
