Snowstorm delays Trump-Merkel meeting

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's first face-to-face meeting with US President Donald Trump will have to wait an extra three days due to a winter storm that threatens to shutdown Washington.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the planned Oval Office sit-down, scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed until Friday.

The day of events was slated to include talks, a news conference, and a working lunch. The same itinerary will occur on Friday, Spicer told reporters at the White House.
