Want to know what happened in the private meeting between Angela Merkel and Donald Trump? Just study their body language.
At the presser before the meeting things were awkward but diplomatic. They even shook hands.
Then came the post-meeting photo op where Trump pointedly refused to shake Merkel's hand. In this photo you can see Merkel leaning towards Trump while Trump, reflexively, leans away, avoiding eye contact like a chastened puppy. The body language screams Trump's fear.
