Trump said Merkel was ruining Germany — now they’re meeting face to facePresident Trump will come face to face with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House Friday — after relentlessly mocking and criticizing her for months on end during last year’s presidential campaign. The new U.S. president and the longtime German stateswoman are expected to discuss the future of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which Trump has criticized, and the West’s relationship with Russia. Trump and Merkel, leaders of two of the world’s most powerful and influential countries, are widely seen as diametrically opposed on issues such as immigration and the Syrian refugee crisis.
