Germany is totally controlled by Russia… Germany is a rich country…. we have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars that’s being paid to the country [Russia] that we are supposed to be protecting you against… We’re supposed to be protecting you from Russia, but why are you paying billions of dollars to Russia for energy.” (US President Trump, July 11, 2018)

One of the only countries that hasn’t agreed to pay what they’re supposed to pay (on NATO) is Germany. So, I said until they pay, we’re removing our soldiers, a number of our soldiers, by about half. Then when we get down to about 25,000, we’ll see where we’re going,” Trump said last month… Gen. Tod Wolters, the commander of US European Command and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe, said the US would be moving EUCOM headquarters from Germany to Belgium as part of an effort to co-locate the command with the NATO military command headquarters that is based there, and that Africa Command headquarters may be moving to a location to be determined as well.” https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/29/politics/us-withdraw-troops-germany/index.html

Germany won’t allow re-export of its Leopard tanks from other European countries:
Visegrád 24 @visegrad24 BREAKING: @JulianRoepcke from @BILD reports that Scholz told Biden in a phone call on Tuesday that Germany won’t allow Leopard 2 tanks be sent to Ukraine before the U.S. sends Abrams. Biden answered that USA won’t send Abrams. This increasingly looks like sabotage from Scholz https://www.trendsmap.com/twitter/tweet/1615823816596553728

Remember how Scholz tried to intimidate and bribe the Trump Admin into waiving US Congressionally mandated sanctions against Nord Stream 2: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2023/01/17/leak-current-german-chancellor-scholz-tried-and-failed-to-bribe-bully-the-trump-admin-into-waiving-us-congressional-sanctions-against-russia-nordstream2-biden-admin-blinken-waived-nordstream2-sa/
