Angela Merkel’s G7 Photo Went Viral, Here’s the Photo She Didn’t Share

Virginia Kruta | Contributor

German Chancellor Angela Merkel shared a photo that quickly went viral as the G7 Summit came to a close. But there was another photo, taken from the same angle within a few minutes, that she chose not to share.

The photo that Merkel shared showed her leaning across a table looking stern while President Donald Trump sat back, crossing his arms.

Merkel captioned the photo as a “spontaneous meeting between two working sessions,” and multiple media outlets quickly picked it up. Seizing on Merkel’s expression, many reimagined the photo to be depicting her dressing down President Trump.































But another photo, taken from the same angle just moments from the one Merkel chose to share, depicted a very different scene. An engaged President Trump leaned forward as Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau smiled. (RELATED: President Trump Slams ‘Dishonest And Weak’ G7 Performance From Trudeau)
