Five European Leaders Just Joined Together to Troll Donald Trump

Five prime ministers of European countries joined together to mock President Donald Trump’s infamous orb photo-op taken during his trip to Saudi Arabia.

The heads all five Nordic countries — Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland — took a photo with their hands on a soccer ball while at an informal meeting in Norway.

The set up was a reference to a viral photo of Trump grasping a large, glowing orb with King Salman and Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi at the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh, which will work to combat extremism.

The European prime ministers took the photo at a meeting between Nordic heads of state in Norway, and follows a NATO meeting in which Trump had stern words for European members, declining to explicitly express support for collective defense.
