W20 Summit: Ivanka Trump to make first foreign trip

Most commentators believed the deal after Mr Trump's election as President, especially as one of his first acts was to pull out of the similar Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) between the US and Pacific nations.

It has been claimed that Donald Trump has somewhat softened his stance on a US-EU trade deal after his recent meeting with Angela Merkel the Chancellor of Germany, despite what appeared at the time to be some very cold body language.

Ten times Trump asked if he could negotiate a trade deal with Germany. "Everytime she replied 'You can't do a deal with Germany, only the European Union", a senior German official told The Sunday Times. "On the eleventh refusal, Trump finally got the message", said an unnamed senior German official.

One of Trump's first acts as president was to cancel United States participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade deal among 11 Pacific Rim countries.

Donald Trump's top trade official wants to revive his country's trade talks with the bloc and is due to host the EU's trade commissioner, Cecilia Malmström.

After returning to Germany, Merkel reportedly informed her government that the USA president and his administration had a profound ignorance of the nature of the European Union and the trade protocols enshrined in the charter of the economic bloc.

The EU and the United States had begun negotiating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership under then-President Barack Obama, but the work was not completed.

He said he had seen a relaxation in the dispute with the US over trade and believed a "non-confrontational solution" would be reached when financial leaders of the world's 20 top economies meet in Hamburg in July under Germany's presidency. Her schedule also includes a trip to the US embassy and the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.

The comment was denounced as meddling by those campaigning to leave the bloc, who argued that Britain would be free to negotiate quick trade deals with major economies around the world once it had left the bloc.
