There's nothing US right-wingers love more than attacks on Europe, because, to them, European "Multiculturalism" has destroyed a mythological, ethnically homogeneous "motherland" white US citizens know little or nothing about, yet claim as their own. So, a Love-Hate relationship.
US right-wingers also hate Europe because it has universal healthcare, paid maternal leave, paid vacations, free universities together with higher quality of life & free-market economy. Europe a huge billboard telling the US that claims about the evils of the state are bullshit.
US citizens constantly told free-market is only solution to any problem, yet Europe a reminder that there are things that the market will not or cannot do. That drives free-market zealots -- who then desperately throw "socialism" around with no understanding of the word -- nuts.
So, when Trump and Stephen Miller rail against #Germany and Europe, they are railing against political entities that, by their very existence, undermine core arguments within American Exceptionalism and the Gospel of the Free Market. They are also railing against difference.
So, #Germany shouldn't take it personally: Trumpites hate every leader in Europe (except Orban). Merkel has just become the symbol for Europe, and the existence of Europe in its current form undermines the Darwinian Ethno-State Project Trump is fronting.
