President Donald Trump is hosting German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House today.
The meeting between the two was originally set to take place on Tuesday but was postponed due to a snow storm that swept the East Coast. Friday’s conference marks Merkel’s first meeting with the new president of the United States.
The president previously criticized the chancellor during the 2016 campaign, particularly for her refugee policies. Their initial meeting this morning was said to be “frosty”.
