Yes, they did shake hands though not the friendliest encounter for either of them. Merkel did commit to spending more on NATO, a win for Trump. what did Merkel get? I don’t know.
“Merkel agreed that the U.S. and Germany “fight against Islamist terrorism.”
“Together, we fight against Islamist terrorism. Germany is going to step up its work and is going to continue its work in Afghanistan and also in Syria. We’re going to monitor the situation there very closely. We’re going to work on political solutions in Syria, but also in Libya — what we talked about,” Merkel said.”
