    No Oval Office handshake, no warm words about her country, a lecture on immigration and a wiretapping smack: Even Ivanka can't lift Trump's VERY chilly summit with Germany's Merkel
    • The leaders of the Western world's most influential counties are meeting face-to-face for the first time today
    • Will discuss strengthening NATO, fighting the Islamic State group and resolving Ukraine's conflict on Friday
    • President Donald Trump spent much of 2016 bashing the chancellor
    • Angela Merkel shared a strong bond with President Barack Obama

    Lecture on immigration? That's like a lecture from Jarred from subway about child safety.

    There is no NATO without the USA, they need to show some respect if they want our help.

    Trump is our head of state, if you are German, why do you care about our immigration policy? Why does she want our borders to be unsecured?

    I think they'd like to present Trump as uncouth. He is business man. He knows how to conduct business

    Angela Merkel is an obedient toady to her masters. Or in bikers' language, she is the "bitch". Where is the surprise that she gets the attention that she has set herself up for?

    • German press branded Angela Merkel's meeting with Donald Trump 'awkward'
    • Tabloid Bild ran a picture of the two leaders sitting awkwardly next to each other
    • Weekly news magazine Der Spiegel emphasised the difference between the two
    • US reporters praised their German colleagues for their tough line of questioning

    it was great how president Trump brought up the wire tapping of Merkel by Obama high lighting what a tool she is.

    Looks like the intended message was sent by Trump and received loud and clear by the MSM

    All other things aside I just don't identify with the notion of a historically relevant country being ran by someone named 'Angela'.
