President Trump and Merkel have not hidden criticism when it comes to each other, but they both sidestepped differences in their presser. Trump made a funny quip when he mentioned that at least they have one thing in common, being wiretapped by Obama.

“At least we have something in common, perhaps,” Trump said in reference to 2014 reports of Obama wiretapping Merkel .. and the recent wiretapping against Trump.

Trump said it was a ‘great honor’ to have Merkel. He also said Germany is doing good with jobs, as he once noted in 2013.

As General Mattis refuses to back down, POTUS also won’t back down when it comes to NATO funding.


Merkel has terrible and costly immigration policies, unlike Trump’s #AmericaFirst policies.
