One Magnificent Photo Sums Up Donald Trump's G-7 Visit  

Perhaps no other photo is in more need of a thorough caption than the one released Saturday by the office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel from the Group of Seven's annual meeting in Quebec.

Tense and confrontational, it appears to sum up President Donald Trump's entire trip, which highlighted divisions among the global powers.

The image dramatically depicts the German leader in an assertive pose, planting both hands firmly on a crisp tablecloth as she addresses President Donald Trump, who is seated before her with his arms crossed wearing a dispassionate expression.

Beside Trump is his national security adviser, John Bolton, apparently speaking above the locked eyes of the U.S. and German leaders. A seemingly unimpressed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe gazes at the group.

The description attached by Merkel's office is a totally unsatisfying one.

"Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions," it reads.

Although we don't know what was really going on at that moment, the image garnered plenty of commentary from armchair body-language experts on the internet:

Trump left the summit early, as planned, before the leaders discussed climate change.

The Trump administration on Tuesday proposed replacing the Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of former President Barack Obama's regulatory efforts to combat climate change, in a move critics said would have dire environmental and health consequences. The proposal released by the Environmental Protection Agency would grant states the ability to write their own weaker regulations for the plants and give them the ability to seek permission to opt out of regulations on power plant emissions. The effort to re-write the plan is the latest move by the EPA under President Donald Trump, a Republican, to roll back environmental protections put in place by Obama, Trump's Democratic predecessor.
