EU, China to reaffirm support for climate pact

This comes less than a week after President Trump criticized trade relations with Germany at the G7 summit and said he will limit imports of German cars.

His censure follows a volley of criticism from Germany after the president concluded his first official tour overseas on Sunday, returning from Saudi Arabia, Israel, Brussels and then Italy for a G7 summit.

"We are living in times of global uncertainty and see that we have a responsibility to expand our partnership in all the different areas and to push for a world order based on law", she said.

Spicer maintained the president views Germany and Europe more broadly as an important USA ally and welcomes calls by Merkel for Europe to take on a greater role in defence.

In keeping with his nationalist economic agenda, he hit out in particular at Germany's substantial trade surplus with the U.S., threatening to introduce customs duties in retaliation.

It is "the order of the day to oppose this man with everything that we stand for", Social Democrat leader Martin Schulz, who is challenging Merkel in Germany's September election, said at a party event.

"I say to all those for whom the future of our planet is important: let us continue on this path together so that we can succeed for Mother Earth", she said.
