Posted July 05, 2017

The U.S. and German leaders have had rocky relations since Mr. Trump's arrival in office, including public disagreements between Washington and Berlin over the U.S. move to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, and Germany's trade surplus with the U.S.

In his talk with Gentiloni, the US leader again voiced his appreciation of the Italian official's efforts in hosting a successful Group of Seven meeting in May, the White House said.

'Will be speaking with Germany and France this morning, ' Trump tweeted on Monday, in the first signal of his change in direction.

Chinese President Xi Jinping called for closer cooperation with Germany in shaping the global order, marking out Chancellor Angela Merkel as an ally on free trade at this week's Group of 20 summit.

"We know the positions of the United States government and I do not expect them to disappear on a two-day trip to Hamburg", the chancellor said.

Chinese state media said Xi told also Trump "negative factors" have affected U.S.
