Ivanka Trump advocates for women, girls in trip to Berlin

Ivanka Trump, listens as her father President Donald Trump, talks via a video conference to astronauts on the International Space Station, Monday, April 24, 2017, from the Oval Office of the White House in Washington.

Mr Trump has argued that signing a trade deal with the European Union would effectively be an agreement between the U.S. and Germany.

Donald Trump reportedly refused more than German Chancellor Angela Merkel's handshake when she visited the White House in March.

In an event, Merkel said that Germany would like to continue to focus on trade agreements such as the one which was signed between the Canada and European Union as it is opposed to protectionism and trade barriers.

"Ten times Trump asked her [Merkel] if he could negotiate a trade deal with Germany", an unnamed German politician told the Times.

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.
