German Chancellor trembles for third time

BERLIN, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been seen shaking in public for the third time in less than a month.

Merkel, the 64 years old chancellor, raised further concerns over her health when she trembled while standing next to Finnish Prime Minister Antti Rinne during an appearance in Berlin on Wednesday. Afterwards, Merkel said she was “fine,” adding that she has been “working through some things” since she was first seen shaking during a June 18 ceremony with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“I am working through some things since the military honors with President Zelensky which do not seem to be over yet, but there is progress and I have to live with it for a while, but I am very well and one does not have to worry,” Merkel revealed.

This latest incident comes after Merkel was seen shaking for a second time on June 27 when she attended an event with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. There she appeared to clutch her arms together to keep herself still. Merkel originally blamed the first incident during her meeting with Zelensky on dehydration.
