Subject: Travel pool report #13: Merkel readout


Hertfordshire

A readout per Hogan Gidley:

Today, President Donald J. Trump met with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Leaders’ Meeting. President Trump urged Germany to increase defense spending and meet its 2 percent commitment at greater speed. The two leaders discussed telecommunications security, especially the need to exclude untrusted providers from 5G networks. They also had a conversation about instability in North Africa and the Middle East, the persistent threat of terrorism, European energy security, and China’s unfair trading practices, disregard for international law, and intellectual property theft.
