On March 17 the German chancellor, Angela Merkel,
met U.S. president, Donald Trump for the first time.
Trump has been president of the USA since January 20th.
The two talked about many things,
for example about NATO.
Trump wants Germany to pay more money for NATO.
They also talked about fighting Islamic terrorism
and the trade deficit.
During the election campaign last year
Trump criticized Merkel several times.
Specifically, he criticized her refugee policy.
At the meeting in the White House,
Merkel said it was better to talk with each other
than about each other.
In one of the more awkward moments of the meeting,
Trump appeared to refuse to shake hands with the German Chancellor. He did, however, shake hands with her
when she arrived at the White House earlier.
