Merkel Planning Frank Talks With Trump

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday that free trade was important for both the United States and Germany in a speech to business leaders in Munich ahead of her trip to meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington.

She also said that she believes it is essential to talk with each other rather than about each other and would use that philosophy as a guide to her talks with Trump.

“The United States of America is a key trading partner for Germany and for the entire European Union,” Merkel said ahead of her visit on Tuesday.
