Trump will be meeting with NATO allies in Brussels this week. He says some of them, including Germany, are not holding up their end of the bargain as they are not spending enough on defense. Does he have a point? DW's Max Hofmann explains.
With Trump due to attend the G-7 in France and later visit Poland, many are wondering why a stopover with Angela Merkel in Berlin isn't on the list. Experts say the cold shoulder move is part of a wider strategy.
The US leader gave Denmark the cold shoulder after the Nordic country dismissed the idea of selling Greenland. The move comes two days after Trump said striking a deal on the island was not a top priority.
US President Donald Trump has confirmed his interest in buying Greenland from Denmark, saying the area was "strategically" interesting. Denmark and Greenland have repeatedly stressed the territory is not for sale.
The government of Greenland says its territory is not for sale following reports that US President Donald Trump was looking into purchasing the massive, ice-covered island.
