Merkel Defends Trump’s Latest Move

In a shocking turn of events, Angela Merkel has sided with Trump on an important foreign policy decision. The Washington Examiner reports:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday defended President Trump’s decision to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House, and said meetings between the two nations must become “normal” again.

“I think it must once again become normal for Russian and American presidents to meet,” Merkel said in a press conference, according to the Associated Press.

Trump and Putin met Monday in Helsinki for their first bilateral summit.

The move was met with mixed reviews, especially after Trump cast doubt on whether Russia meddled in U.S. elections. Trump said later that he misspoke and meant to portray the exact opposite message.

This could help restore some sanity into the whole Russia debate.
