Germany: Chancellor Angela Merkel announced she will not seek another term as chair of Germany’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) ruling party, a post she has held for 18 years, after a disastrous performance by her party in regional elections.  She will retire at the end of her current term in 2021 and says she has no plans to seek any political posts in the future.  Merkel permanently changed Europe by opening the gates to mass immigration and should be investigated for secret deals she made with George Soros and Mark Zuckerberg.

Merkel is scheduled to speak to the media at 1 p.m. local time on Berlin.
