Richard Grenell Slams German Politician Who Said He’s Leaving Ambassadorship in Shame

On Sunday, Richard Grenell confirmed that he will be leaving his position as ambassador to Germany, the role he’s been in since September 2017, until he assumed the role of acting Director of National Intelligence in February. Grenell swore in Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) yesterday for the official DNI role.

Grenell tweeted on Sunday, “You make a big mistake if you think the American pressure is off. You don’t know Americans.”

In response, Dr. Andreas Nick, a member of the Bundestag, Germany’s parliament, suggested that Grenell was the first US ambassador he neither trusts nor respects:

Grenell slammed Dr. Nick right back in a way only he could, echoing President Trump’s “America First” message:

According to Townhall, due to U.S. pressure, Germany agreed to match U.S. contributions to NATO, as it should.

Last November German officials announced that they would increase its share by another $36 million. Starting in 2021, Germany’s share of the NATO budget covered will increase from 14.8 percent to 16.35 percent. A little pressure goes a long way.

We need more people like Ric Grenell in positions of power.
