President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel appear headed for a one-on-one confrontation on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Brussels.
The two world leaders will soon meet. Trump plans to bring up his contention that Russia controls Germany with its energy dominance.
Merkel has already fired back at Trump, saying she lived in Germany under Soviet control and the government today is different, and that Germany is a solid US and NATO ally.
