Asked about the impact of the US presidential election on the relationship between Germany and the US, the FM said that “America is more than a one-man show” and that, regardless of the outcome, the two countries will continue to work together. Maas indicated his hope that, while the US won’t instantly return to the international stage “with full energy,” the result will allow them to work “quickly to get the West to play as a team again.”
Germany’s foreign minister has been critical of the US president in the past, accusing him in September of trying to “sow doubt on the validity of the election,” and expressing disappointment earlier this year at the “complicated” relationship his country has had with Washington since Trump took office.
The result of the US presidential election has still not been called, with four states – Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania – still counting ballots. Biden is currently leading in all four states.
