Look What Happened Right After Trump and Melania Landed In Germany

Donald Trump arrived in Hamburg, Germany on Thursday for the G20 Summit. As soon as he landed, he was greeted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with whom he has had a tense relationship in the past.

Daily Mail reported that Merkel offered Trump her hand for a handshake as he got off Air Force One, holding the pose for several seconds as cameras snapped around them to make sure the media captured the friendly gesture. They also quietly made small talk, but what they said was not heard by reporters around them.

After the photo-op, Merkel led Trump away for a closed door meeting so that the two could talk about trade, climate change, and a host of other topics, including Russian aggression.

Trump landed in Germany immediately before the meet and greet for an intense two-day stretch at the G20 summit that will put his diplomatic prowess to the ultimate test as he sits down with Russia’s president, a former KGB spy, for the first time.

While speaking in Poland on Thursday, Trump seemed to slam Russia by saying for it’s “destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes including Syria and Iran” and urged Vladimir Putin’s government to join the US and its allies in the fight against violent extremism.
