Mar 19, 2017, 00:49
In their first meeting at the White House since Trump's inauguration as president, Trump reprised his complaints that the us had been treated "very, very unfairly" and poured loaded praise over German trade officials for besting their American counterparts.
Mrs Merkel and Mr Trump appeared to have an awkward meeting at the White House, with the US President seemingly refusing to shake the German Chancellor's hand in front of the media in the Oval Office.
"As far as wiretapping, I guess by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps", Trump said, referring reports that the National Security Agency had tapped Merkel in 2010, during President Barack Obama's first term.

"The United States has been treated very unfairly by many countries over the years", he told her, reiterating a long standing talking point. "Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind, that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way.
We want fairness." Questioned by the German press, however, Trump vehemently denied that he supports an isolationist policy. "That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox, so you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox".
She also said that Germany was committed to increasing defense spending and paying 2 percent of the country's GDP to fund North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
