Some first date! Trump SNUBS Merkel's attempt at Oval Office handshake, no warm words about Germany

The leaders of the Western world's most influential counties meet face-to-face for the first time today  President Donald Trump spent much of 2016 bashing the German chancellor and the tension was palpable during a news conference on Friday Trump proclaimed that 'immigration is a privilege, not a right' in his opening statement and stressed the 'need for our NATO allies to pay their fair share' for defenseMerkel told him it has always been her belief that it is has always been better to 'talk to one another and not about one another' - a reference to the many disparaging statements Trump made on the campaign trailTrump finally told Merkel 'at least we have something in common, perhaps'; they were both wiretapped by the previous administration, he impliedMerkel shared a strong bond with President Barack Obama, despite his administration's previous spying

President Donald Trump had his chilliest summit yet with a foreign leader as he met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel today for the first time. 

Talks began with a warm welcome outside the West Wing but turned cold as Trump blew off an attempted handshake in the Oval Office and disagreed publicly with Merkel on almost every major international issue.

Trump opened up a joint news conference that his daughter Ivanka attended with a slap at Merkel over her open-door refugee policy. Declaring that 'immigration is a privilege, not a right,' Trump said the safety of the countries' citizens 'must always come first without question.'

He also pushed for her country to live up to its NATO commitment, stressing the 'need for our NATO allies to pay their fair share for the cost of defense.'

Merkel told him it has always been her belief that it is 'much, much better to talk to one another and not about one another' - a reference to the many disparaging statements Trump made on the campaign trail about her leadership.

As the press conference came to a close, Trump told Merkel 'at least we have something in common, perhaps.' They were both wiretapped by the previous administration, he implied.

    Very Rude, it costs nothing to have manners.

    It also goes to show how one sided the media and public are regarding social behaviour, respect and manners.

    The media and Public did not go after Merkel & EU leaders for their rude and anti social behaviour when they ignored her and refused to shake PM Theresa May's hand during one of the earlier summits following the Brexit results

    I don't blame him for not shaking her hand. He was sending a message......Message received

    If Angela has now become the leader of the Western world...
