Bosses of German companies including engineering group Siemens (SIEGn.DE) and carmaker BMW (BMWG.DE) will travel with Chancellor Angela Merkel to meet U.S. President Donald Trump this week, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Plans to overhaul the U.S. tax code will be debate by G20 finance ministers and central bankers at their meeting in Germany this week, a senior German official said on Monday.

Ahead of Trump meeting, Merkel says trade vital for U.S. and Germany

German captains board the Trump Train.
Yeah, but if that's what Trump demanded before he'd negotiate, well, you gotta do what you gotta do. Maybe he could put them up on display in one of the tour areas.
Quick - someone get Trump a big, mean looking dog. (Remember how Putin used his puppy to intimidate her.)
You know that you are doing something right when the high-and-mighty insufferable German come to kiss your a55.
Agreed. Quite the tell.
You have to admit that this is really, really fun! President Donald J. Trump has everyone thinking outside of their respective boxes!
The word “debate” give the impression that the Germans have a say in the decision process of America’s economy and foreign relations. A better word to use would be “discuss”. I am getting so sick of pompous Eurotrash.
“German captains board the Trump Train.”
