What Happened In This Iconic Photo Of Angela Merkel & Donald Trump?

Photo shared by Angela Merkel hints at tension at G7

After hearing Canadian prime minister's comments vowing to retaliate for United States tariffs on steel and aluminum during a news conference, Trump tweeted that Trudeau had made "false statements", and White House officials had harsh criticism for Trudeau during the Sunday morning news programs. Highlighting that the document is still "legally-binding" as far as Germany is concerned, Merkel said she would uphold it but her patience after Trump's about-face had worn thin.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's viral photo staring down President Trump last weekend is just one of many moments captured during the Group of Seven summit - many seem to show conflicting stories. In his address President Trump spoke about his recent appearance at the G7 summit, "I had a very good meeting with the G7". This year's summit had a particular focus on trade. But differences remain on how to balance French President Emmanuel Macron's call for more solidarity in Europe.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe shared his own stare-down directed at Trump.

Merkel and Trump also had a brief conversation at the summit. Aides for each of the leaders stood by the side, including top economic adviser Larry Kudlow and national security adviser John Bolton. "Let us be serious and worthy of our people".

He said USA farmers had been harmed by tariffs and other barriers and warned that USA trading partners would need to provide him with more favorable terms: "It's going to stop or we'll stop trading with them". Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support.

On Russia's possible return to the G7, Merkel said she could imagine it in the future but that the conditions had to be right for that.

US President Donald Trump has continued his personal attacks against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, tweeting that he "acts hurt when called out".

She further said that the USA tariffs were "illegal and unjustified" and Canada did not believe in using "ad hominem attacks".

Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said a united front by the other six G7 nations should be the response to Trump's "America First" approach. "Sometimes I get the impression that the USA president believes that only one side wins and the other loses". "International cooperation cannot depend on anger or small words".
