Donald Trump criticizes EU’s refugee policy

Relations between the EU and US President-elect Donald Trump have turned sour following his criticism of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's open refugee policy as a "catastrophic mistake".

US Secretary of State John Kerry, who is on his last trip abroad, voiced his opposition to Trump's claims. He told CNN that it was "inappropriate" for Trump to "be stepping in to the politics of other countries in a quite direct manner." Kerry added that Trump will be responsible for his remarks and relations with the EU.

This was not the first time that Trump has antagonized the Europe. During his campaign, Trump has repeatedly blamed some NATO countries for not paying enough of a share of the military budget as they committed to, which he said was unfair on the US. He even threatened to reconsider the US's relationship with NATO.
