WHY IS ANGELA MERKEL MAKING THAT HAND SIGN?
Donald Trump as a candidate created so many great mental pictures–Low Energy Jeb, Little Marco, and Crooked Hillary, for example.
He’s still trolling the politicians, this time the G-7 leaders.
Besides the little stuff, Trump pulled a giant surprise by advocating for Russia to be re-admitted to the group, which used to be the G-8 before Russia “stole” the Crimea.
This is great theater. It demeans the Western leaders that had control of the globalist agenda until Trump arrived on the scene.
On the surface, the Group of Seven meetings convened Friday along a pristine stretch of Canadian riverfront appeared just like normal.
But beneath the smiling handshakes and whispered pleasantries was the unmistakable impression the global alliance of industrialized nations has changed for good.
President Donald Trump arrived expecting to tangle with his foreign counterparts on trade, a fight he proudly began but has been apprehensive about waging in person.
The leaders of France, Germany, Great Britain and Canada all planned to confront him directly about the tariffs on steel and aluminum that they believe threaten America’s closest world alliances.
But when the time came to air their grievances in public, the leaders here mainly sounded resigned to the fact their differences with Trump may never be resolved. And they made light of the disputes.
