Merkel to Trump: push forward UN Syria process

White House press secretary Sean Spicer speaks to moderator Greta Van Susteren at the Newseum in Washington Wednesday

Obama, a regular churchgoer, will participate in a discussion called "Engaged in shaping democracy - taking responsibility at home and in the world" on May 25 at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate.

While many thought the anti-immigrant party, Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) would be the biggest rival this year, it is turning out to be her own coalition partner Social Democratic Party (SPD), who candidate Martin Schultz has recently disavowed the US President Donald Trump call to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to spend more on defense and abide by NATO's 2 percent GDP spending on defense rule.

A senior USA official told the Associated Press that the presence of a drone, controlled by Russian Federation, over the hospital where victims were being treated following the attack was not a coincidence.

Obama visited Germany six times as president, but he captured the hearts and minds of Germans before he was even elected.

The event kicks off a summer marking the quincentennial of the Protestant Reformation.

Gov. Christie halts Amtrak payments, calls for inspection
Noting that "We just made a bulk $62.5 million payment to Amtrak ", Christie added, "I have no problem with making the payments". Amtrak for Thursday warned of modified service and delays for its Northeast Regional line operating between Washington and NY .

Schulz' main rival, chancellor Angela Merkel of the centre-right CDU party, has said Germany feels "obliged to reach this goal" of two percent defence spending.

In appearing with Obama in Germany, Merkel hopes to capitalize on some of the lingering nostalgia that remains for the Democratic leader there.

"Prime Minister May and Chancellor Merkel expressed support for the action of the United States and agreed with President Trump on the importance of holding Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accountable", the release stated on Monday.

Germany holds the chair of the Group of 20 of the world's major economies, with the annual G20 summit set to take place in the German port city of Hamburg on July 7-8. The appearance is expected to be Obama's first public talk since leaving office in January.

While aides to both men spoke in the aftermath of Trump's claims, the two presidents have not themselves discussed the matter. "That's not supposed to be happening, but I've been proven right".
