Trump Tweets Photos of Him Hanging With G-7 Leaders to Prove His ‘Great Relationship’



President Donald Trump is blaming the “Fake News Media” for only sharing the bad pictures of him and German Chancellor Angela Merkel from the G7 Summit.

“I have a great relationship with Angela Merkel of Germany, but the Fake News Media only shows the bad photos (implying anger) of negotiating an agreement – where I am asking for things that no other American President would ask for!” the always image-conscious POTUS tweeted out early Friday evening.

Trump appears to be referring to the media’s response to a photo of a cross-armed Trump at the G7 Summit.

The photo, and the resulting memes, drew a strong reaction on Twitter, many of which mocked Trump.

The photo also apparently launched a meme explosion in China, with China residents eager to share the image.

“Ordinary Chinese don’t care about G7 but the photo triggered interest among Chinese netizens,” Liu Weidong, a research fellow at Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, explained to the Global Times.

“The photo presents an unequal and antagonistic G7 group,” Liu continued on. “It’s complicated. Each leader shows a distinct personality – Germany challenging the US, and Abe being submissive to Trump.”

It is unclear why Trump is talking about the photo, which is now old news, but he’s also shared a few more photos to disprove other “Fake News” about the summit:
