WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke about security in the Middle East, Libya and other issues, White House spokesman Judd Deere said on Monday.
Sunday’s discussion followed a separate conversation between the two leaders last week in which they talked about “the tense situation regarding Iran and Iraq.”
