WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump says he is discussing a myriad of topics with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a key European leader he harshly criticized for opening the door to refugees from Syria.
The two leaders posed for photographers in the Oval Office before a one-on-one meeting. Trump joked: "send a good picture back to Germany, please."
They are expected to discuss strengthening NATO, fighting the Islamic State group and resolving Ukraine's conflict - all matters that require close cooperation between the U.S. and Germany.
