    For the second time in two days, German Chancellor Angela Merkel reiterated how Europe can no longer rely on its traditional allies - the US and the UK.

     

    The chancellor has been unusually candid about her views since G7 and NATO summits were held last week - where US President Donald Trump ruffled many feathers of his European allies over a range of issues.
