According to their sources, Trump was speaking to advisers about NATO and the U.S.-German relationship at a meeting in the Oval Office when he referred to Merkel as “that bitch Merkel.”

“‘I know the fucking krauts,'” Trump went on, using a derogatory term that was used against the Germans in World War I and World War II. The authors write:
