Macron and Merkel address the press after European Union reform talks

GETTY•BUNDESTAGAngela Merkel could be replace as German Chancellor as soon as next week claims Kai Whittaker

The interior minister now wants to turn away at the border new arrivals who have previously been registered in another European Union country - often their first port of call, Italy or Greece.

If Merkel is given a two-week ultimatum, she would still have the Herculean challenge of persuading European Union governments to sign up to a common plan on the migrants.

Merkel would still have options if the CSU quit the coalition: Greens leader Annalena Baerbock refused on Monday to rule out replacing the CSU in Merkel's coalition.

Rogan, a Washington Examiner commentary writer, explained that Merkel is facing a "populist pushback" within her own ranks.

It's the first time Trump has openly criticised Germany's immigration policy since he took office a year ago, although he was previously critical of their immigration policy during the presidential campaign when he called Angela Merkel's decision to leave the country's borders open to Syrian refugees as "insane".

Watch the discussion above.

Rent prices too high for minimum wage jobs
Cleveland is now undergoing a wave of new housing opportunities, many of which are geared as luxury living . Over the past decade, construction of new rental units has been geared toward the high end of the market.

Instead, Merkel wants to find a common European solution at the EU summit in Brussels.

The regulations have already admitted more than one million migrants into Germany, who are then allowed to travel to other European Union member states without restriction.

Merkel emphasized the need for Germany's conservative parties to stick together, but she and Seehofer may only have delayed a head-on clash.

The CSU hopes its tough line will help it see off a challenge from the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in wealthy Bavaria's October election.

After meeting at Chancellor Angela Merkel's Meseberg retreat outside Berlin, she and France's Emmanuel Macron presented the new budget as a means of boosting the bloc's economic competitiveness.

While several high-profile crimes by migrants have fuelled public anger in Germany, which has admitted more than one million asylum seekers since 2015, the country's crime rate is at its lowest since 1992, according to official figures released last month. The influx has led to an anti-migrant backlash in Italy, where many arrivals first landed, and in Germany, the preferred end destination for many refugees.

Mullah Fazlullah who ordered attack on Malala Yousafzai killed in drone strike
Fazlullah assumed leadership of the Pakistani Taliban after Hakimullah Mehsud was killed in a US drone strike in 2013. Fazlullah had ordered her killing for promoting girls' education.

If Seehofer decides to go it alone, Merkel would have to fire him, sparking an unprecedented CDU-CSU split, political scientist Heinrich Oberreuter told business daily Handelsblatt.

Seehofer on Monday agreed to implement his immigration "master plan" step by step, stopping short of unilaterally enforcing a policy opposed by Merkel while she attempts to find a solution at European level, sources have told German news agency DPA. But "we want finally to have a sustainable solution for turning back refugees at our borders".

Keen not to increase burdens on German taxpayers, Merkel has indicated she would prefer a euro zone budget in the "tens of billions" rather than Macron's idea of hundreds of billions of euros for investments.

The meeting in Berlin followed a week of political upheaval in Germany and the rest of Europe in response to mass migration into the EU.

"The rejections will take effect from the first week of July at the latest if no effective results are achieved at the upcoming European Union summit", the statement said.

"No one in the CSU has an interest in bringing down the chancellor, dissolving the CDU-CSU joint parliamentary group, or blowing up the coalition", Seehofer was quoted as telling the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.
