Drudge Report headlines with the coming meeting of two of the most powerful people in the world. They're head of Germany Angela Merkel and head of the U.S. Donald Trump.
What members of the media will focus on will be flashpoints.
Recently, German prosecutors in the VW emissions case raided the Munich office of Jones Day law firm. A major American law firm, Jones Day is conducting an internal investigation of VW executives. The objective is to determine if any of them had been associated with the scandal. VW was outraged by the raid. Jones Day had no comment.
During Campaign 2016, Trump tweeted that Merkel was ruining Germany. That seemed bizarre since Germany, under Merkel's leadership, has been one of the strongest economies in the European Union.
But the most volatile issue between the two leaders had been their stances on immigration. Until attacked on that by her own people, Merkel was welcoming. Trump has made severe restrictions on immigration his signature. At a time when good secure jobs continue to be scarce, Trump understood how immigrants could be blamed for "stealing" jobs.
In addition, the world is curious how Trump will manage to be even professional in the presence of a female with so much power. Over and over again, in his public persona he has positioned and packaged females in almost a binary way: They are beautiful or they not beautiful.
Can The Donald treat The Angela as an equal? The next big test will be when he meets with Queen Elizabeth.
