WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ivanka Trump had nothing but nice things to say to each other Tuesday during their brief encounters in Berlin. Instead, they let subtle shade speak to the obvious tensions created between them by President Donald Trump.
Merkel thanked the first daughter and recently appointed assistant to the president for having "braved this trip to Germany" during a gala dinner Tuesday night, including a slight nod to her father’s far-right ideologies on immigration and global trade, two issues the world leaders differ greatly on. "I hope we were a good audience for you,” Merkel said, “and that you’ll take some new ideas home with you."
