After their meeting, Trump and Merkel are expected to hold a joint press conference. The book further argues Merkel's policies created an "anxiety about migration" that fueled the Brexit campaign in the United Kingdom and Donald Trump's run for president of the U.S.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has scrapped her Tuesday visit to the White House because of the snowstorm bearing down on Washington and the Eastern Seaboard. He even predicted that voters would overthrow her but simultaneously described her as a great world leader.

Trump's criticism of Germany over issues ranging from its record trade surplus tos Merkel's liberal refugee stance, as well as his backing for Britain to leave the European Union, has been the issue of tussle.

As for Merkel, she has so far carefully avoided any overt confrontation with the US president, promising to judge Trump on his actions rather than his words.

A month after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence delivered a message to Europe underscoring the importance of transatlantic ties, Tuesday's meeting will be scrutinized for clues on whether Trump fully endorses that message. Topics of discussion were expected to include Russian Federation, trade, NATO, and refugees.

Driven by Events: Merkel's Refugee Policy by political journalist Robin Alexander says Mrs. Merkel was warned 40,000 migrants were travelling through the Balkans and could enter Germany in a single weekend. In January, Trump himself suggested to Germany's largest newspaper that a tariff on BMW imports could be in order.

White House officials said Trump's initial opinion of Putin is operative.
