Democrat Michael Nutter said that President Trump was afraid of “strong, powerful women” like German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Former Democratic Mayor of Philadelphia Michael Nutter implied that President Trump’s criticism of the U.S. trade deficit with Germany and his demand that Berlin meet its NATO obligations could be sexism on CNN on Tuesday.
We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change

Responding to the president’s tweet, Nutter praised German Chancellor Angela Merkel, “[Trump’s criticism is] pretty disgraceful and I have to commend the Chancellor for speaking her mind.”
“Remember, it appears Donald Trump is intimidated by strong, powerful women,” Nutter said. “He refused to shake her hand in the White House.”
“She spoke her mind, and now he’s all flipped out today on Twitter,” he continued.
Nutter criticized Trump’s first foreign trip as a whole, calling it “embarrassing.”
The Philadelphia Mayor stepped into controversy in 2015 when he called Trump “an asshole” in his official capacity.
Trump responded, calling Nutter a “low life.”
.@Mayor_Nutter of Philadelphia, who is doing a terrible job, should be ashamed for using such a disgusting word in referring to me.Low life!
