G7 photograph memifies Trump diplomacy

The German leader also reiterated that said she is not ready to "give up on G7" but at the same time would seek dialogue with Russian Federation and try to "work very closely" with Japan, Canada, India and China.

Many saw a distillation of a crisis of the West in the photograph, and a revival of the debate launched by U.S. and British media after Trump's 2016 election whether Merkel was the new "leader of the free world".

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. "Instead, we act then too", Merkel said in an unusually combative tone.

President Trump has refused to budge on his tariffs against Canada and European countries.

In this photo made available by the German Federal Government, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, center, speaks with US President Donald Trump, seated at right, during the G7 Leaders Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, on Saturday, June 9, 2018.

Earlier in the day, the USA leader tweeted that he had instructed his representatives not to sign the statement, hours after the summit's host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, announced all countries had supported it. Trump called Trudeau "meek and mild" and "dishonest and weak" in a tweet for his stance on tariffs.

The US leader, who is in Singapore for a landmark summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, said America was paying more towards the cost of NATO than fellow members.

National Security Adviser John Bolton and other aides also look on what appears to be a tense moment.

In case ya missed it, the leaders of Germany, Canada, Japan, United States, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom have come together to talk global issues.

"The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before-both in public, and in private conversations with the president", Trudeau's office announced in a statement, according to Reuters.

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.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", Trudeau said. "Canada has objected in words, but will also do so in actions", she said, referencing the retaliatory measures Canada will impose next month. "And anyone who leaves and turns their back on them shows their inconsistency", the palace said.
