NPR Sunday Puzzle (Nov 18): Take Me to Your Leader

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Nov 18): Take Me to Your Leader
Q: Think of the name of a current world leader. Taking the letters in the first half of the first name, and the letters in the first half of the last name, you can rearrange them to spell the language of this leader's country. Who's the leader and what's the language?
I didn't intend to anger many with my sparse clues last week, but apparently I did. Well this week, I hope to give some help that will be directly relevant to the topic. What I suggest is looking at a list of current world leaders, but be sure to look at both the heads of state and the heads of government.

Edit: Apart from the obvious hints, here are the hidden clues:
"anger many", "directly relevant" (= germane).
A: Angela Merkel (Chancellor of Germany)
ANG/MER --> GERMAN
