Merkel-Trump face-off photo headed for history books

UK Prime Minister Theresa May on EU Summit in Brussels

The G7 - an informal annual summit of democracies with highly developed economies - took place Friday and Saturday in the Quebec resort town of Charlevoix in Canada, which holds the rotating leadership this year.

"There remain good reasons to fight for the transatlantic partnership", she said, adding that the current round of trade tariffs that the United States and European Union have imposed on each other did not signal the end of a partnership.

Closer home, Indian Twitter users spotted an opportunity to make the photo more relatable by editing Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Trump's place, asking when they would receive the Rs 15 lakhs Bharatiya Janata Party leaders promised each Indian would receive if they were voted into power in 2014.

"We won't let ourselves be ripped off again and again".

Later on Saturday, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said all seven nations had signed a joint communique at the end of the summit, Trump angrily lashed out on Twitter, stating the US would not endorse the statement. "Sometimes it seems that the American president thinks that only one side wins and everyone else loses", Merkel said, apparently speaking about Trump's verbal attacks against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The chancellor also announced during Sunday's interview that, just like Canada, the European Union was also preparing counter-measures to Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs. Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, accused Trudeau of undermining US interests at the summit, calling Trudeau's actions "a betrayal". Across a narrow table, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron are standing, holding copies of a draft text, arguing for their position.

USA Today also added that "if a picture is worth 1,000 words, Angela Merkel has some thoughts", noting that the chancellor posted the photo on her Instagram with the following caption: "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions".

"As Canadians, we are polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

The acrimonious fallout from the G7 began after Mr Trump watched Mr Trudeau's end-of-summit press conference. We have a very big trade deficit with Canada.

The European leader-famed for negotiating compromise without political histrionics-gave an uncharacteristically candid and combative assessment of relations with Trump as she spoke to German channel ARD, after last week's G-7 summit.
