Angela Merkel stands by claim that Europe can not rely on US

US Isolated Over Climate G20 Host Angela Merkel

"In an extensive discussion, the leaders addressed climate issues, the Women's Entrepreneurship Financing Initiative, and trade, including global steel overcapacity", it said.

Trump will hold separate meetings with various leaders in Hamburg, including host German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and a potentially hard first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The White House later said in a statement that the calls would be with Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, but did not mention French President Emmanuel Macron.

Police unleashed water cannon on demonstrators in Hamburg's St. Pauli district late Monday after activists had set up camps for people gearing up to protest the G-20 meeting on Friday and Saturday, according to organizers.

And Kevin Rudd said it appeared the United States was on brink of triggering a trade war with China over inaction on North Korea.

The memorable moment between the Chancellor and President Trump occurred during the pair's first meeting, where the President appeared to have forgotten to shake Merkel's hand.

"The US will probably not engage in Africa to the extent that would be necessary, particularly since they barely have oil interests any more in Africa and the Arab world", she said".

Trump announced on Twitter that he would be talking on the phone with leaders from Germany, Italy and France on Monday.

Ex-Trump Associate to Testify Before House Intel Committee on Russia Probe
President Donald Trump, will appear before the House Intelligence Committee on July 24, reports say. Roger Stone, a long-time adviser to U.S.

Merkel's conservative party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU/CSU) four years ago described the U.S.as Germany's "most important friend outside Europe", and the relationship between the countries as the "cornerstone" of Germany's worldwide relations.

Merkel is ready to face the challenge of opposing viewpoints from not only Trump, but also from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erodgan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It's not yet known if Trump will raise the issue of Russia's meddling during the meeting.

Last week, Merkel met with other European leaders and vowed to press on with climate protection and fight for open markets despite concerns over protectionism and Trump's "America First" policy.

Mrs May invited Mr Trump on a state visit to the United Kingdom shortly after he took office, but speculation that it may have been put on hold was fuelled by its absence from last month's Queen's Speech.

"German Chancellor Merkel asked me how about holding the next G20 summit in Hamburg?".
