DW: George W. Bush reflects on Angela Merkel’s legacy (Exclusive interview)


July 14, 2021

Exclusive DW interview: Former President George W. Bush reflects on his relationship with Chancellor Angela Merkel and her legacy.

“Merkel brought class and dignity to a very important position and made very hard decisions. She did what’s best for Germany, and did so based upon principle,” former U.S. President George W. Bush said in an interview with DW Washington Bureau Chief Ines Pohl ahead of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s farewell visit to the White House on Thursday, July 15.

The interview at the Bush family’s summer home in Maine was conducted as part of the DW documentary “Angela Merkel – Navigating a World in Crisis,” which will be published on our DW Documentary YouTube channel in September, shortly before the federal elections which will determine Merkel’s succession.
