Matteo Salvini, Italian deputy prime minister, met with the Polish government earlier this week in a bid to form a “European Spring” to turn the tides against the “French-German axis” in a struggle for the fate of Europe.
According to La Repubblica, Salvini claimed he “would like there to be a common alliance of those who want to save Europe”. The aim of Salvini, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, and other members of Poland’s government meeting was to build a cross-nation Parliamentary alliance ahead of the incoming EU Parliament elections to work against the “globalist endeavors” held by Brussels, Berlin, and Paris.
Salvini said in a statement regarding the meeting:

German chancellor Angela Merkel called for the creation of "a real European army" while addressing the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, and was applauded and then booed by many in attendance. Reacting to the jeers she said: 'I'm really pleased about this, this is great. I'm annoying some people'.
“A united European army would show the world that between European countries, there will never be another war. It will not be an army against NATO. Please, don't think so. It can be a good supplement to NATO. No one wants to question the classic alliance,” Merkel said.

Approval ratings of both German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have taken a major hit due to mass migration.

German leader Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron are now faced with their worst public approval ratings, hitting record lows, as conservatism and populism spreads across the European Union.
According to a YouGov poll released last Friday, Macron’s approval rating dropped by five points to 27% against 62% disapproval.
Notably, at this time last year, Macron’s approval rating was at 50%. The sharp drop in support comes after one of Macron’s bodyguards was filmed savagely beating a protester.
Macron’s former bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla, hit and stomped a young man whilst wearing a police visor on May 1st. Benalla, who was not a policeman, had been given permission to “observe police operations” on his day off.
Many accused the incident of being covered up when it was not reported to police and that Benalla’s punishment – two weeks suspension without pay and being transferred to an administrative job – wasn’t enough.
Although the Benalla scandal certainly didn’t help Macron, his low approval numbers come after many conservative victories. In the last year, elections in Hungary, Italy, the Czech Republic, and Austria saw populist movements spring up with citizens voting for strong borders, to protect their heritage, and to reject globalism.

Posted 202 days ago: BREAKING: Trump's trade negotiations are working! Angela Merkel now in support of cutting tariffs!
German Chancellor Angela Merkel now supports cutting tariffs on US cars, following tariff-threats by President Trump. According to Reuters, Merkel said she would support lowering tariffs on U.S. car imports. Tariff negotiations reportedly ongoing.
However, she added EU tariff negotiations required a “common European position and we are still working on it.”
U.S. President Donald Trump threatened last month to impose a 20-percent import tariff on all EU-assembled vehicles, part of a tough line on trade that has raised tensions across the world and which could upend the EU industry’s current business model for selling cars in the United States.
The U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has repeatedly met with executives of German carmakers Volkswagen (VW) (VOWG_p.DE), BMW (BMWG.DE) and Daimler (DAIGn.DE) and automotive suppliers including Continental (CONG.DE), most recently on Wednesday, to discuss the issue.
An industry source told Reuters earlier that Grenell had mentioned to the executives that Trump could abandon his threats if the EU scrapped duties on U.S. cars imported into the bloc.
