Senator Responds To Trump’s Germany Statement

Sen. Orrin Hatch admitted that he did not agree on President Trump’s statements that Germany is “totally controlled by Russia” because of  “massive oil and gas deals.”

Hatch stated, “I don’t agree with that. The Germans wouldn’t agree with that. They are very strong people. I just met personally with Angela Merkel over there, and I have really the highest opinion of her and those who are with her.”

“I think sometimes he can be a little too critical of the other counterparts, and I don’t think he should be critical. She’s really good.”

“I really like here I think she is one of the great woman leaders of this world. She was very gracious to us. Answered every question.”

  • For What Its Worth

    Senator Hatch unfortunately has been on the side of the people who have been intentionally allowing (no encouraging) this country’s slide into a Globalist morass! He has done little to stand up to the Democratic Socialist (nee Communist/fascist) cabal that has ruled DC for years! His disagreement with Trump must be on style, not on substance. If it is on substance, then Mr. Hatch is totally out of touch as to what is and has been going on with Europe and our enemies. Globalism at this point is the problem, not the solution! For what its worth!

  • Louisiana Lady

    Please retire now instead of later, Hatch. Angela Merkle is a Socialist/Communist who has singlehandedly ruined Europe with the Muslim invasion. Some great leader she is!

  • Berengaria

    Senator Hatch appears to be easily swayed by an experienced STASI Operator like Merkel, & the Senator remains Numb & Dumb about Merkel’s New Islamitized Germany. Perhaps the Aged Senator needs to take a stroll, alone, on any Public Strasse in Berlin, some night late, & then report back to us, if he is able to speak.

    AFTER CAREFUL CONSIDERATION I REALIZE THAT I CAN NOT DISTINGUISH WHO IS ON WHO’S SIDE. WASHINGTON HAS TO BE THE WORLDS BIGGEST SERAGLIO. I CAN;T TELL WHO ARE THE HOOKERS,THE PIMPS,THE MADAMS NOR THE JOHNS. IT SEEMS THEY ADD TO THE CONFUSION BY SWITCHING ROLES IN THE DC CATHOUSE.

    • Could you explain your insane rant?

    Too critical? Yes dumbass. Far better Americans continue to pay billions over our costs to sustain NATO as we’ve done for the last 30 years?
    No idiot stick! NATO is supposed to be a group effort. American taxpayers have been paying to normalize the entire world for 30 years.

    • EMMA L. ANDERSON

      Absolutely correct that’s why we have a swamp in DC

  • You can be critical of Trump if you wish (you idiot), but he gets sh** done! He has done more for the American people than ANY president ever! So, go ahead and criticize him! Hatch, you are a poster child for term limits!

    • EMMA L. ANDERSON

      PRESIDENT TRUMP has kept his WORD and is helping blacks, Hispanics and white and Japanese and even Chinese And any group that wants to better themselves. Dem o rats want to have you lean on Govt so dems can control your voting, your living your life etc. dems do not care about your standard of living remember this and vote for AMERICA

  • Davidme2

    I actually thought Sen. Orrin Hatch was smarter then this !?!? He even gives credit to Angela Merkel,

    why ?? I would rather be a used car salesman then most of these present day politicians !!! Wake Up America and quit voting for and reelecting ill informed and radicalized individuals to represent “We The People” and America,s best interest !!!

    • Danny S.

      davidme2, Go to conservativereview.com and look up Hatches voting record. this comment is in line with business as usual old school politics. Time for Hatch to go!!!

  • rll

    Germany buys Russian NG and becomes dependent as America play “Daddy” to protect Germany from big bad Russia. Something is wrong there!!!!
    Time to wean Europe. They have been sucking America’s teat for too long.

  • Beverly Parrott

    I don’t give a Rats A** what you think.

  • Jmanjo

    Perhaps Merkel is gracious in her behavior, and perhaps Russia does not totally control Germany. However, since they provide or will soon provide a huge amount of their energy they will hold a tremendous sway over Germany if they withhold or threaten to withhold supply. Trump is correct about that and sometime you have to over express yourself to get others to understand the predicament theyhave created for NATO!

  • Patrick Feeney

    Trump was right on! Now the rest of NATO will be paying their share. The American taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize other countries!

  • Robert Pekarik

    So, she’s really good, the German people are strong, and she is one of the great woman leaders of the world and she is gracious. But she makes a deal with the nation that wants to control Europe putting Germany in the hands of the Russians regarding their need for gas and oil and can’t see the conflict she has with belonging to NATO which was formed to guard against Russian aggression??????? Senator Hatch has passed his usefulness as a clear thinking representative of our nation and is way, way, way past retirement. He has been farleftized.

  • Ironmike4610

    Hatch probably admired Hitler too!!!

  • bobwhite1935

    Did you ask her why she is turning over her country to Islamic Muslims & hiding their crimes from her citizens by forcing media to hide their crimes too is that your idea of free speech, then God help the USA from you.

  • Allie Davis

    Of course you like her! She is doing the same thing to Germany that YOU and ass-hat Obama tried to do to this country!

  • ddufremle

    Oran Hatch is out of touch with reality. A great reason for term limits. He is long past his prime especially as it reflects to the world of socialist issues.. He is more of a globalist and really does not reflect the thought of the American people. Please go away quickly so as not to embarrass yourself any longer.

  • Ralph Sinamon

    She has destroyed Germany! Our career Congress-critters are doing a bang-up job of destroying the U. S.! We keep re-electing the crooks who are destroying our nation! Great job folks!

  • Dan59

    Hatch is like an ostrich with it’s head stuck in the sand, he know’s nothing of the real world or if he does he is lying to all the voting public. It is a very well documented fact that much of Europe including Germany are heavily reliant on Russia for natural gas, fuel oil, and gasoline as they have such vast amounts to sell. As for controlling Germany even if not an outright control it is a silent control as the Europeans don’t want to do anything that will enrage Russia who could cut them off. Look at the massive bill that Putin and company dreamt up against Ukraine as relations got dicey over Crimea and the subsequent invasion of eastern Ukraine by the Russians.

  • Mark Patterson

    All of you morons who keep harping about “socialism”, just look and see how well Scandinavian countries are doing compared with the U.S. or Canada. Norway, with a tiny population of about 8 million, has approximately $1 trillion tucked away from their energy royalties. Workers at McDonald’s in Denmark earn about $20 / hr., where a Big Mac costs about 30 cents more than in North America. Healthcare is inexpensive, as is college or university. if you want a truly content democracy, you will need to have a slightly socialist approach. You won’t get that with Trump, Doug Ford or Jason Kenney. They tell you that reducing taxes on the rich will increase prosperity and jobs. Not if they would prefer to stash that cash in tax-free havens overseas.

  • Raquel Salientes

    I’m afraid Sen. Hatch has grown soft in the head. He likes Merkel because she is a nice person who has been “gracious to us”. No, Sen. Hatch, look at her record of opening up Europe who now has a problem with terrorism and too many immigrants, the failure of the Euro, the growing unpopularity of the EU and its globalism principles, and then tell me again she is a “great leader”. I guess in his old age, the good Senator would like to be characterized as “very diplomatic” or a friend to our allies, instead of showing them up as what they have been — leeches and opportunists who have been “friendly” to the US and secretly try to get one over us – all the time, We must seem like great puppy dogs to UK, Germany, France and Russia — so eager to please our European allies that we do not dare protest the unfairness with how we are being treated.

  • Judy

    Has even Senator Hatch succumbed to Alzheimers?? Merkel is responsible for all the crime……actively inviting any and all foreigners into Germany without vetting. The economy can’t help but be in dire straights when the German citizens have to pay for hundreds of thousands of non-working refugees(???). The physical attacks are so numerous; but she won’t allow the media to report it because it would make her record show how she is so irresponsible. The only way we get info on all the violence is when someone with a phone takes a video. She has been known to even have the police go to people’s apartment to confiscate said evidence. The only reason the US doesn’t do anything in response to this is because it doesn’t involve a US citizen.
