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

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.

Trump: Release of Russia probe report up to attorney general

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the newly confirmed US attorney general should be the person who decides whether to publicly release the much-anticipated Russia report, which could be completed as early as next week. The remarks came as CNN reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has headed the probe since May 2017, could deliver his final report next week, possibly when Trump travels to Asia for his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Asked at the White House whether Mueller should release the text while the president is out of the country, a subdued Trump said "that will be totally up to the new attorney general," Bill Barr.
