Trump tweet on immigration and crime in Germany is false - Vox

'President Trump decided this morning to take a very odd step of sounding off about the domestic politics of a major ally, Germany. '

'His core factual assertion that “crime in Germany is way up” is the opposite of true. '

'Immigration is a difficult issue for the so-called “grand coalition” between the main German center-right and center-left parties Merkel oversees. '

' But it’s just not true that crime is up. '

'This is because Merkel’s policies are unpopular with the right wing of her own party, and especially with its Bavarian affiliate that, for various historical reasons, has a good measure of institutional autonomy. '
