Donald Trump welcomes Angela Merkel for talks on Nato and Islamic State

President Donald Trump has welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the White House.

Ms Merkel arrived this morning for a series of meetings with Mr Trump.

The itinerary includes discussions on strengthening Nato, fighting the Islamic State group and resolving Ukraine's conflict.

President Trump spent much of 2016 bashing the chancellor, accusing her of "ruining" Germany for allowing an influx of refugees from Syria.

Ms Merkel was originally supposed to visit the White House on Tuesday. That meeting was delayed due to snow.
