Germany`s economic growth slowed last year to 0.6%, the weakest since 2013, as manufacturers were affected by trade disputes and a drop in external demand. German-American relations, also known as German-American relations, are bilateral relations between Germany and the United States. German-American relations are the historic relations between Germany and the United States at the official level, including diplomacy, alliances and war. Since the 1680s, the theme has also covered economic relations such as trade and investment, demography and migration, as well as cultural and intellectual exchanges. Nations clashed in two world wars. In the late 1940s, the United States occupied West Germany (along with the United Kingdom and France) and built a demilitarized democratic society. The independence of the Federal Republic of Germany was acquired in 1949. It joined NATO, understanding that its security has long depended on the military power and strategic reliability of the United States. Germany had outsourced its security to the United States and NATO.

East Germany became a Soviet satellite. After the fall of communism in Eastern Europe in 1989, Germany was reunited with the support of the United States. It has become a set of economic and political forces in Europe and a close ally of the United States. However, after Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, relations cooled. Economic and diplomatic relations were positive in the 1920s. The U.S. government rejected the hard-fighting anti-German agreement of 1920, signed a new peace treaty that did not include punishment for Germany, and worked with Britain to create a viable Euro-Atlantic peace system. [36] Ambassador Alanson B. Houghton (1922-1925) believed that Peace, European stability and American prosperity depended on the reconstruction of the European economy and political systems. He felt that his role was to promote the political engagement of the United States with Europe.

He overcame U.S. resistance and disinterest and quickly realized that the central issues of time were all mired in the economy, especially the war debts that the Allies owed to the United States, the reparations Germany owed to the Allies, global inflation and international trade and investment. The solutions, he said, required a new American policy and close cooperation with Britain and Germany. He was a leader of the Dawes plan.
