CDU and AfD bash Gabriel for refugee remarks
by Brandon Conradis
Sigmar Gabriel has drawn criticism for his recent comments about Angela Merkel's refugee policies. In an interview on Saturday, the vice chancellor called Merkel's policies "inconceivable."
Both Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) had strong words for Gabriel on Monday, just days after the vice chancellor criticized Merkel's approach to dealing with the influx of refugees over the past year.
In snippets of an interview with German broadcaster ZDF released on Saturday, Gabriel said the chancellor has "underestimated" the challenge of dealing with the more than one million refugees that have entered the country over the past year.
