Berlin gets unwanted Ronald Reagan statue
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will unveil a statue of former US President Ronald Reagan at the US embassy on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
Pompeo is in the German capital to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Reagan, who passed away in 2004, became an honorary citizen of the city in 1992. Local officials felt that was sufficient.
However, thanks to a proposal by US Ambassador Richard Grenell, the German capital is getting a bronze image of the former president anyway.
