White House tells the UK it won't baselessly accuse them of spying on Trump anymore

The White House on Thursday cited unproven media reports that President Barack Obama asked Britain's signals intelligence agency, GCHQ, to monitor Donald Trump in order to "make sure there were no American fingerprints".

"We can not neglect the reality that Germany has created a lot of jobs in America and that's what President Trump says he's all about", said Sherman, now a senior counselor at Albright Stonebridge Group.

Merkel turned to Trump.

The White House on Friday said that it never meant to lend credence to a Fox News commentator's baseless remarks supporting President Donald Trump's claim he'd been wiretapped by reading those remarks aloud in a press briefing. Merkel and her delegation, which includes a BMW top executive, aim to show economic evidence that barrier-free trade between the two countries is a win-win situation.

During the meeting, Trump and Merkel discussed issues ranging from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to trade and immigration.

Mrs Merkel said Germany had committed to increasing its military spending to the previously agreed level of 2% of GDP for NATO's European members. Trump repeatedly complained about Merkel during his campaign, accusing her of "ruining Germany" and being a "catastrophic leader".

Which is why Trump's embarrassing resistance to Angela Merkel during her recent visit to the White House is so painfully revealing.

After almost a dozen years as chancellor, Merkel is known for her successful track record on dealing with notoriously hard leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. For her part, Merkel made clear that the two don't see eye to eye - and several times echoed the president's language of pursuing "fair" treatment.

Merkel, whose visit with her new US counterpart was marked by cool distance in their public appearances, was left to explain that trade negotiations are the province of the European Union, not her government, and that there are no such German interlocutors.

"It is only fair that both sides profit from the treaties they made".

The stark difference between their immigration policies surfaced again occasionally in the course of their news conference - with Trump pointedly asserting that "immigration is a privilege, not a right". "I am sure that Donald Trump will not be immune", said Mr Juergen Hardt, a conservative lawmaker who helps coordinate transatlantic relations for the German government.

"Those who know the Chancellor know that she has a knack for winning over people in personal discussions".

Trump had earlier welcomed Merkel with a handshake.
