On Sunday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel uttered a single sentence that speaks to how fundamentally President Donald Trump has reshaped — and will continue to reshape — the world, and America’s place in it,” CNN reports.

Said Merkel, “The times when we could completely rely on others are, to an extent, over.”

“While Merkel made no mention of Trump specifically, she made clear that her realization had come ‘in the last few days’ — a time period which overlapped with a G7 meeting in which Trump blasted America’s traditional European allies over NATO obligations and made clear that he was more than willing to go it alone on climate change and trade.”
