Trump responds to viral G-7 photo

Merkel's official Instagram account hints at tension among G7 leaders Merkel's official Instagram account hints at tension among G7 leaders

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she favours a US-Russian summit, seeking to push global diplomacy forward after a tumultuous meeting of Group of Seven leaders.

Merkel said the G7 leaders had agreed to review their trade ties and assess the scope of existing tariffs in order to avoid further trade barriers.

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. "This is probably not because he does not understand, but because of domestic reasons", said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump called him "very dishonest and weak" in a tweet after Trudeau repeated criticisms of USA tariffs on imported steel and aluminum and Trump's trade policies in a news conference following the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec.

French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel aim to present their reform proposal at a European Union summit on June 27-28, but differences remain on a euro zone investment fund and joint bank deposit insurance.

The G7 summit took place over two days in Charlevoix, Quebec.

"It's highly unlikely there will be a final communique", a G7 official said on condition of anonymity. The EU is also attending the summit.

Trump set the tone before leaving Washington on Friday. We have a very big trade deficit with Canada.

"For today, I think it's much more important to convince our American partners to strengthen our format as guarantor of world order, than to look for something new, more challenging, more hard", EU President Donald Tusk said Friday. We have to change it. "We are standing by them, and whoever turns their back on them shows their incoherence and inconsistencies", an aide to Macron said.

Echoing Merkel's sentiments, French President Emmanuel Macron's office said that "international cooperation can not depend on fits of anger and a few words", according to a statement published by French public broadcaster RFI. But the summit host, Trudeau, whose nation was among those singled out by Trump, pushed back and said he would not hesitate to retaliate against his neighbor to the south. "I know it didn't look friendly", Mr. Trump said at a press conference in Singapore. "Ask this great lady".

American National Security Advisor John Bolton, however, offered a different interpretation of the photograph.
