German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Monday — after a contentious NATO summit last week — that Germany can "no longer completely rely on the White House," Reuters reports.

"To maintain our partnership with the USA we must readjust it. The first clear consequence can only be that we need to align ourselves even more closely in Europe. ... Europe must not let itself be divided however sharp the verbal attacks and absurd the tweets may be.”
— Maas, per Reuters
