President Donald Trump says Helmut Kohl was a "friend and ally" to the United States as he led Germany through 16 pivotal years. In a statement, Trump says Kohl is "not only the father of German reunification, but also an advocate for Europe and the trans-Atlantic relationship."

He says the world has benefited from his vision and efforts.

Trump adds: "His legacy will live on."
