Merkel v Trump – can they establish a strong working relationship?
The German Chancellor Angela Merkel is meeting US President Donald Trump for the first time. So, can they establish a solid working relationship? Last year, Trump accused Merkel of 'going off the reservation' during the refugee crisis and characterised her policies as a 'total disgrace'. However, this could be water under the bridge as it will be strictly business for Merkel who is expected to raise issues including the Nato contributions, the fight against ISIS, and trade. Graham Lanktree, Foreign Reporter with the International Business Times, joined Share Radio Breakfast to look ahead to the meeting.

“I don’t think May’s leaving anything to chance, and she’ll have worked out Trump’s approach” – Allyson Stewart-Allen
Theresa May is currently in the unenviable position of simultaneously having to negotiate trade deals with Europe to the East, and the US to the West. And as with all British business leaders trying to build their US sales and presence, the Prime Minister must ensure she is in sync with the American businessman leading the country. Allyson Stewart-Allen is the Director at International Marketing Partners, and she joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to offer her views on the approach May should take.
