In Munich, it's Pence versus Merkel

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and German Chancellor Angela Merkel spent much of their speeches at the Munich Security Conference criticizing each other's countries over national security and trade concerns.

Pence reiterated the White House's calls for European Union countries to scrap what's left of the Iran nuclear deal and increase NATO spending, among other demands.

Merkel, meanwhile, hit back on Washington's concerns over Russian energy exports into Europe.

Her remarks also included ridicule for President Trump's assertion that German cars are a national security threat to the United States on the basis of trade imbalance, to some cheering and laughter in the audience.

The president's daughter, Ivanka Trump, was in attendance.

The tit for tat in Munich is evidence of a widening rift between the Trump administration and its European allies.

Earlier on Saturday (February 16) Merkel, whose country is hosting the conference, greeted Pence on his arrival.
