Trump will welcome Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany to the White House on April 27, 2018. On the occasion of Merkel’s re-election as Chancellor, the two leaders will reaffirm the German-American partnership—a bedrock of the transatlantic relationship and the NATO Alliance—as both nations work together to address a broad range of geopolitical and economic challenges. The two leaders will convene for an extended set of bilateral meetings, followed by a press availability in the Rose Garden.
