How did Donald Trump and Angela Merkel get along during their first face-to face meeting? DW's Miodrag Soric spoke with Robert Kimmitt, former US Ambassador to Germany and Deputy Finance Minister under George W. Bush.
US President Donald Trump is not known for political correctness or a use of language that takes sensitivities into account. The list of his racist comments is long. Here's a round-up.
The leader of Germany's Social Democrats, Sigmar Gabriel, wants Martin Schulz to run for chancellor. But to date, the former European Parliament president has not been very active in German national politics.
Trump has ordered a review of Chinese trade practices that force foreign firms to partner with Chinese firms. This comes shortly after he praised Beijing for its support of harsher UN sanctions on North Korea.
US President Trump stepped up his warnings for North Korea despite German Chancellor Merkel condemning his "verbal escalation." The European Union has meanwhile called an extraordinary meeting to discuss its options.
