Merkel vows to enhance German wealth, security in 4th term

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is "aloof" and "out of touch", her main challenger Martin Schulz said Sunday, stepping up his attacks as he seeks to turn around a flagging campaign ahead of next month's general election.

German chancellor Angela Merkel has said she sees no possibility for deepening European Union co-operation with Ankara at present as the rule of law no longer exists in Turkey.

She said that any mistakes in her handling of the refugee crisis came before 2015 when Germany opened its doors, arguing that policy had "placed too much on the Dublin system in the past, which has overburdened countries such as Italy and Greece".

Angela Merkel has said harsher measures should be taken against asylum seekers if they take a holiday in their country of origin.

"I would take all the important decisions of 2015 the same way again", she told Germany's Welt am Sonntag newspaper, saying they had been necessary to "avert a humanitarian catastrophe". But Merkel, who is viewed as perhaps the most powerful politician on her continent, appeared to be calling for greater involvement around Europe.

"Yes in principle", the chancellor said Sunday when asked about a demand by her main opponent, Social Democratic leader Martin Schulz to allow auto owners to collate complaints against carmakers.

"The EU stands by its promise to make available an additional €3 billion once this initial amount of €3 billion has been entirely used", she said.

Trump Security Adviser Sebastian Gorka Out At White House
Civil rights advocates slammed Mr Trump's decision as an endorsement of racist and unlawful immigration policies. Gorka had worked on issues related to counter terrorism, Qatar crisis, designing new security strategy for US.

Some of the anti-Merkel signs in the crowd read "Go to the Muslims", "Get lost Merkel", and "Save the constitution from Merkel", and bore the AfD label.

She said: "That some countries refuse to accept any refugees is not on".

Merkel on Saturday encountered fierce protest in an election campaign rally in Quedlinburg in eastern Germany's state of Saxony-Anhalt, where the anti-foreigner sentiment is obviously strong.

"The economic coherence [in the eurozone] in terms of research and development, sovereign debt and many other things leave something to be desired", Merkel said, adding that the EU's banking union and digital single market remained works in progress.

In Saturday's speech Merkel made it clear that refugees were welcome in Germany even though she conceded there could not be a repeat of the influx.

Despite surging in the polls, the German leader faces some serious public backlash on her campaign trail.
