What else would you expect – a hard liner communist Angela Merkel, a freedom loving President Trump, and a liberal cowboy socialist Professor Trudeau – I would call that two peas between a pod.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel — or an aide that runs her account—shared the picture on Saturday, as Trump was preparing to depart early from the meeting in Montréal, Quebec ahead of a high-stakes Singapore meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
The photo depicts Trump sitting behind a table with his arms crossed, while stony-faced aides and leaders look in his direction. Merkel looks especially peeved at the former business mogul, whose decision to raise tariffs on aluminum and steel rankled some foreign leaders ahead of the annual meeting.
(What she (Merkel) and (he) Trudeau are mad about is Prez Trump (the USA) is going to start charging them tariffs to bring goods into the USA. The USA has such a large trade imbalance due to OUR past presidents and their global wealth distribution and not charging tariffs – but, yet we paid tariffs for our goods – doesn’t that tell you what has been going on – and giving them foreign aid on top of that.
That is what you call a dumb politician. Do you run your household this way? I call it being a sucker. Trump told them he “busted” the USA piggy bank and it is now empty. Just like any child – they don’t like it because the USA has no “free bank” any more or no free lunch.)
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is also in the photograph, standing with his arms crossed, while Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton stands nearby. The meeting also included Canada’s Justin Trudeau, France’s Emmanuel Macron, Italy’s Giuseppe Conte and the U.K’s Theresa May
Merkel’s official caption is rather benign: “Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: Spontaneous meeting between two working sessions.”
Many twitter users, however, had a deeper interpretation of the photograph.
(We have to understand Merkel is protecting ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steel producer with headquarters in Luxembourg City.)
(Today, engineering graduates all across Canada are presented with an iron ring at the ceremony as a reminder of their obligation to society.)
Merkel, leader of Germany and who just barely won her last election, has clashed with Trump numerous times. The two also share wildly different leadership styles. Many—if not most—of the captions created by social media users riffed on that contentious dynamic.
During a solo press conference shortly before he departed, Trump rebuffed rumors that the atmosphere was anything but pleasant. Also true to form, he described the reports as “fake” news.
“I would say that the level of the relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship — Angela and Emmanuel [Macron] and Justin [Trudeau]. I would say the relationship is a 10.”
He continued, blasting a CNN reporter.
“The relationship that I’ve had [with the other leaders] is great, so you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN,” the president said.
CNN is still at their old butt tricks of their trade to disparage our leader because CNN is not backing the American people but the Democrat socialist/muslims in the USA. The CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and NBC viewership in the country has dwindled to its lowest in comparison with one other TV station due to their fake news.
