white house the focus was on style as well as substance. after a frosty first meeting last spring in washington this time there were signs of a thaw no handshakes persist on this occasion and there were kind words from president trump that we have a really great relationship and we actually have had a great relationship right from the beginning but some people didn't understand that but we understand it and that's what's important but very extraordinary woman and it's an honor to have you at the white house for people. but the cordial tone couldn't hide differences on the issues at hand trump has threatened to pull the u.s. out of the euro nuclear deal once to save it. does this it remains as anything but perfect it will not solve all of the problems of iran is one piece of the may say one building block that we can improve upon the money all phone con on the

issue of trade mechelle got no assurances that the trump would continue to exempt the e.u. from steel and aluminum tariff states instead trump bemoaned the u.s. trade deficit with the european union has it's been unfair and i don't blame the chancellor and i don't blame germany i don't even blame the european union i blame the people that preceded me for allowing this to happen. there's no way we should have a trade deficit of one hundred fifty one billion dollars me on a coast pending trump revived an old grievance with europe we're protecting europe and yet we pay by far more than anybody else the nato is wonderful but it helps europe more than it helps us and why are we paying the vast majority of the costs thank you very much everybody even though max is meeting with trump lasted only a few hours it followed a three day visit by french president emanuel not calm neither leader was able to get trump to change course on iran or trade it's

a sign transatlantic ties could remain troubled. joining me to discuss this further now is nicole and then that she's an associate fellow at the german council on foreign relations now nicole no actual achievements that we can necessarily put all finger on at the moment perhaps a warm up in a relationship between merkel and trump a mugging how significant is that woman reception to the transatlantic relationship it's certainly very important because you know he reaches alt's in iraq a constructive atmosphere and if the mood and the atmosphere is guided by a more positive spirit that already helps that at the end of the day this visit will be viewed on the basis off the successes and the chancellor had very concrete ideas of what she wanted to achieve in this meeting and we have to see young may second if she reach the goal for example with the exception off the european union

from the terrorists u.s. it's going to impose yes let's pick up on that a little bit more because you mentioned the exemptions for the e.u. when it comes to tariffs there was also the iran nuclear deal that was a conversation that the leaders were keen to have as well because we also sort of course the french president a man who i might call go to washington before machall needa back home or manage to draw out commitments on these issues to do. if the e.u. have any leverage going for it you know sometimes the process is a process where certain steps have to be taking one after another and the visit of my troll prepared the ground for further negotiations and what i thought was very interesting about the visit of merkel is that she admitted that the nuclear deal is far from perfect one of the issues is said you know it has a certain time limit to it and the other issue of the us is complaining about is that the ballistic missile program is not part of the deal and she said we have to

improve the deal but it's a good base to further negotiate in this is the european position they consider the deal as a big success for europe and they also see it in strengthening the more reformist in iran so for for the u.s. president to listen to the european leaders and to understand or trying to understand what they have what they can put on the table is an important step right now when we look at the visits of merkel and michael can you see a kind of game plan emerging from these two in how they deal with trump absolutely i mean one of the positive signs that came from the two visits was the european union now wants to show we are we stand together now we speak with one for as you know a criticism that has been heard over the years over and over again and the telephone exchange between my call and. on friday morning already showed that they are really you know working hand and hand the results however we don't know what the
