This petition had 312 supporters


Dear Chancellor Merkel,

We, citizens of the United States of America witnessed with embarrassment and shame our President, Donald Trump's rude and emotionally unintelligent response to your gracious offer to shake hands during your photo session with him at the Whitehouse.

We are writing to request that you accept our apology for our President's ill-mannered and uncivil behavior towards you and by default the people of Germany.

President Trump's boorishness and discourtesy is not an accurate reflection of the respect, admiration and esteem that we the American people hold for you and your countrymen.  Whatever disagreements there may be among friends and allies, we the signers of this petition, are adamant that our President's behavior; a) did not represent a constructive way to express disagreements among friends, and b) did not represent the views or sentiments of the overwhelming majority of the American people towards you and the German people.

Thank you in advance for accepting our apology on behalf of the American people.  

Yours in Friendship and Peace.
