Biden hosts German Chancellor Angela Merkel at White House

  Biden hosts German Chancellor Angela Merkel at White House Merkel is expected to leave office this year, stepping down from a position she’s held since 2005, spanning four U.S. presidents.

The emergency was Donald Trump . Minutes earlier, the President had arrived late to a session where the Presidents of Ukraine and Georgia were making their case to join NATO. Trump interrupted their presentation and unleashed a verbal assault on the members of the alliance, calling them deadbeats and free “You, Angela ,” Trump chided Merkel .

German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Washington on Wednesday for what will in all likelihood be her last official visit to the US before her almost 16-year term in office ends after the September federal election. Although the Merkel era is coming to an end, the trip is being seen as marking a new beginning in German-US relations following the tensions between Berlin and Washington under the administration of Donald Trump . However, although new US President Joe Biden has vowed to steer his country away from the far more unilateral "America First" course of his predecessor, he and

Trump's grandfather, Friedrich Trump, emigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1885. The former president's father, Fred Trump, was born in the Bronx in New York City in 1905 and reportedly spoke English but no German.

Trump and Merkel had a consistently strained relationship. On the campaign trail in 2015, Trump said the German chancellor "should be ashamed of herself" for allowing more than a million Syrian refugees into her country. When Merkel was later named Time Person of the Year, he tweeted that she was "ruining Germany."

Merkel traveled to the U.S. on Wednesday for a farewell visit. She is due to leave office later this year, with the next German general election scheduled for September 26. She had already stepped down as leader of her party, the CDU, in 2018.

Merkel is due to meet with President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and other senior officials on Thursday. Biden is the fourth U.S. president Merkel has dealt with during her time in office.

Merkel , who is facing elections later this year, criticized Trump 's protectionist policies on Saturday, and earlier said there was no guarantee of cooperation between the two countries. "From the point of view of some of our traditional partners - and I am thinking here as well about the transatlantic relations - there is no eternal guarantee for a close cooperation with us Europeans

Ms Merkel said Mr Trump 's tweets went "against what makes America great", and she said that the strength of America lay in its ethnic diversity. Mr Trump was widely accused of racism for saying that the congresswomen should "go back" to the countries they came from.

Leonnig and Rucker's book also makes a number of other claims. They write that senior military officials, including General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were concerned that Trump might attempt a coup or other illegal measures following his defeat in the 2020 presidential election and they discussed a plan to resign rather than carry out orders they considered illegal.
