Merkel: Trump's Twitter Withdrawal From G-7 Statement 'Sobering' And 'Depressing'

Merkel-Trump G7 face-off photo headed for history books

A photo of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders standing over a cross-armed United States President Donald Trump at Friday's G7 summit has been given the meme treatment on social media. "And anyone who leaves and turns their back on them shows their inconsistency", the palace said. Let's be serious and worthy of our people.

The summit did not mark the end of the transatlantic partnership between Europe and the U.S., Merkel said. We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal. In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters.

Seibert told reporters in Berlin Monday that his office "is connecting no interpretation" with the picture. Canada are hosting the leaders of the UK, Italy, the US, France, Germany and Japan for the two day summit, in the town of La Malbaie.

I’m always by your side: Arjun Kapoor tells Janhvi
My character, Parthavi, is very different from Archie and I have simply tried to play my character honestly", she said. Talking about her father and producer Boney Kapoor , Janhvi said, "He has given me a lot of love and support".


The communique addresses trade, economic growth, national security and sustainability, and acknowledges that "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment, while creating reciprocal benefits, are key engines for growth and job creation".

The German chancellor's comments on Sunday come after Trudeau announced that Canada would implement its own retaliatory tariffs on the U.S. Trump had given Canada, the European Union and Mexico temporary exemptions from the steel and aluminum tariffs he first announced in March, but said at the end of May that he would be ending the exemptions.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".

Mr Trump on Saturday threw the G-7's efforts to show a united front into disarray after he became angry with Mr Trudeau, and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry.

Merkel said that Trump would probably retaliate by implementing new tariffs on German vehicles. Echoing a series of comments she's made about the erosion of US-European ties, Merkel expressed consternation about Trump's disavowal of the G-7's joint closing statement. He reiterated his longstanding view that the USA has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

Germany, Europe's top economy, finds itself in the sights of the U.S. president due to its large trade surplus and defence spending criticised as too low by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
