‘Chemistry between Trump and Italy’s Conte aids links’

Donald Trump Meets Giuseppe Conte

Rome, August 29 (AKI) “Chemistry” between Italy’s populist Premier Giuseppe Conte and US President Donald Trump has helped them build a “serious and consolidated” relationship” since Conte took office last year, diplomatic sources said on Wednesday.

The glowing praise that Trump bestowed on Conte in a tweet was not “an endorsement due to positions they shared at the last G7 summit” but the result of “getting to know each other,” a source told AKI.

“They have a serious and consolidated relationship…chemistry inevitably plays a role in this,” the source underlined.

Conte had been “surprised” and “very proud” to read Trump’s accolades, the source said.

In the tweet, Trump hailed Conte as a “very talented man”, patriot and “highly respected prime minister” who “works well with the US” and “represented Italy powerfully at the G7”.
