President Donald Trump gave German Chancellor Angela Merkel a warm welcome at the White House today after accusing her of ‘ruining Germany’ for allowing an influx of refugees from Syria during his presidential campaign.

If Trump wanted a close working relationship with Merkel, he had a funny way of showing it last year.

‘You watch what happens to Angela Merkel, who I always thought of as a very good leader until she did this. I don’t know what went wrong with her,’ said then-candidate Trump at an August rally in Virginia. ‘What went wrong? Angela, what happened?’

Trump may not ask the same question directly to Merkel as the leaders of the Western world’s most influential counties meet face-to-face for the first time.

A snowstorm forced them to postpone their plans for a meeting on Tuesday.

The itinerary includes discussions on strengthening NATO, fighting the Islamic State group and resolving Ukraine’s conflict, all matters that require close cooperation between the U.S. and Germany, the White House said ahead of the visit.

The meeting will be capped with a joint news conference.
