Diplomatic ties between Germany and America appear to be going from bad to worse. US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is continuing to raise tempers in Berlin. On Tuesday, he accused the German government of “reducing its already unacceptable commitments to military readiness”, calling that a “worrisome signal” to Germany’s NATO allies.The German government is annoyed at what they see as Grenell’s meddling. Members of the opposition have even demanded that the controversial ambassador be expelled. That’s a near impossibility, but tensions over defense spending between Berlin and America’s ambassador are likely to continue.
