Germany under Merkel: One big US military base (Full show)

President Biden hosted German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House on Thursday. After leading Germany nearly 16 years, she is expected to step down in October, making this her last official state visit to the US. Rick Sanchez takes us through her relationship with four successive US presidents.

He then discusses the continuing US military presence in Germany. Then we take a look at topics addressed on Thursday’s visit, which include Nord Stream 2, patent protection for COVID-19 vaccines, and Beijing’s rise in power and influence. RT America’s Faran Fronczak reports from Washington, DC while RT’s Peter Oliver reports from Europe.

Then author Jeremy Kuzmarov and Todd “Bubba” Horwitz of Bubba Trading share their insights.

International investor Jim Rogers joins Rick Sanchez to discuss the runaway inflation he expects to inevitably weaken US economic might and contribute to the decline of US power abroad.
