A photo posted on Instagram by German Chancellor Angela Merkel from the G7 Summit in Canada last month went viral, showing President Trump seated, and Merkel, along with other world leaders, appearing to glare at Trump.
The photo drew an onslaught of mockery from the left, who suggested that the photo indicated Trump was being put in the hot seat, or that Merkel was “laying the law down” to Trump.
However, a set of photos from the same scene posted later on Facebook by President Trump himself shows an entirely different side of the story.
When posting his photos, which show a very friendly scene, Trump writes, “Please clear up the Fake News! They only show the bad photos (implying anger) of negotiating an agreement – where I am asking for things that no other American President would ask for!”
See the two sets of photos below.
