The Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, disagreed with the US president, Donald Trump, in a White House photo-op on Monday. The president referred to upcoming discussions between the US and the EU around trade deals and tried to joke that if the discussions failed it could be positive.
Rutte quickly injected with a strong “No” and a smile.
Trump replied with a comment about the car industry, but Rutte followed up quickly with: “It’s not positive. We have to work something out.”
