Merkel to stress tariffs threat to American jobs

He served through 2008 and worked with Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton when he was United Nations ambassador.

Trump nominated Grenell back in September, but Senate Democrats successfully blocked his nomination for months, with some opposing confirmation because of past tweets from Grenell that they characterize as disparaging to women.

His supporters included Stuart Milk, co-founder of the Harvey Milk Foundation and nephew of the late gay-rights activist.

During the 2012 presidential campaign, Grenell was hired by the Mitt Romney campaign as a foreign policy spokesperson, but resigned after less than two weeks due to pressure because of his sexual orientation.


Milk told The New York Times in March that he believed Grenell's confirmation would "send an important message" to the LGBTQ community about their ability to serve in the Trump administration.

Among Merkel's priorities during her visit to Washington would be to deepen economic ties with the United States, the German government source said, adding that Berlin is ready to renegotiate industrial tariffs with the US.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is heading to Washington with the same message French President Emmanuel Macron delivered only days earlier: that the US and Europe need to bury the hatchet on key issues, from global trade to worldwide security. Emmanuel Macron visited President Trump early this week, while Angela Merkel is set to travel to the USA today. "Donald Trump is the first USA president since World War II to fundamentally question the ideas and institutions of the liberal global order".
