WASHINGTON: A photo shared by German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the Group of Seven (G7) summit in Canada has sent Twitter in splits. Out of a hundred photos taken at the summit, the one posted by Merkel shows her staring down US President Donald Trump while standing behind a table with both hands pressed firmly into its surface atop some documents.
Merkel captioned the picture: “Day two of the G-7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions.” With a neutral expression, she can be seen staring directly at President Trump, who sits on the other side of the table.
The photo shared on her Instagram account has invited hilarious captions and memes on social media with many calling it an ‘iconic photo’ of the summit. Merkel and Trump are also surrounded by a slew of other leaders, including Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. national security adviser John Bolton.
It is not really known what conversations were going on at the moment when the image was clicked. While many said that the picture sums up Trump’s time at G-7, several others called it a ‘power dynamic’.
