'Atlanticist' Merkel rams home frustration with Trump after summitsBy Paul Carrel and Andreas Rinke BERLIN (Reuters) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel underlined her doubts about the reliability of the United States as an ally on Monday but said she was a “convinced trans-Atlanticist”, fine-tuning her message after surprising Washington with her frankness a day earlier.
