Prime Minister Rutte also gave a press conference. Rutte already told political reporter Fons Lambie that it had been ‘a difficult process’ and ‘had turned into a long weekend’.
There has been a lot of puzzling in recent days to reach an agreement and several times there have been irritations between the heads of government. Prime Minister Rutte was seen as a ‘sleeper’ because he would be too economical. Earlier this week, French President Macron and German Chancellor Merkel even stepped ‘grumpy’ at a meeting with the Netherlands and other economical countries.
