Ivanka goes to Europe: March’s meeting between President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel was a bit awkward — Trump made some odd jokes, and the lack of a handshake raised many eyebrows.

The president’s daughter, Ivanka will be going to Berlin on Tuesday for a G20 meeting on gender equality where the German leader will also be present.
3. 100 Days of Trump: Rightly or wrongly, many consider the first hundred days of a president’s administration to be like a weigh station. For President Trump, that milestone comes on Saturday. While the President and his staff are spinning the start to his term positively, others look at the failure on health care reform and the stalled efforts on immigration bans as black marks.
4. Talking Brexit: While a lot of time has been spent thinking about how Britain will go about exiting the European Union, there is another question to consider as well — how the EU will handle the UK leaving.
