Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the other leaders clashed with Trump over steel and aluminum tariffs as well as his decision to abandon a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program. A year and a half later, this restraint is no longer up-to-date or appropriate...
Germany also said it will stand by the jointly agreed communique. He's stressing that any impressions are "in the eye of the beholder".
"1:0 for the USA president!"
The BBC parsed the picture by identifying all nine individuals in it, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is barely visible, and Larry Kudlow, head of Trump's National Economic Council as well as several Japanese officials and USA national security adviser John Bolton.
"The President made it clear today".
Merkel's comment was one of two nods to Trump during her hourlong ARD interview after her return from the G-7. Celebrities like George Takei even said on Twitter that the photo proved Trump was an "international disgrace".
Regardless of the interpretation, the image succeeded in launching an internet-wide caption contest. "Maybe we can help", in a tart reference to alleged collusion between Russian President Vladimir Putin's government and the Trump team to influence the United States presidential election.
"It looks as if Madam Merkel is teaching The Donald a lesson!"

Supreme Court Upholds Controversial Ohio Voter-Purge Law
The ruling revives the battleground state's process for managing its voter rolls after an appeals court invalidated it in 2016. Under Ohio's voter purge regime, 1 millions voters, or 13 percent of those sent the confirmation cards, did not return them.
Others, however, insisted that Trump looks like he's in control of the situation in the photo.

"Europe United is the answer to America First". She also said the U.S. president wasn't entirely wrong in pressing Germany to increase defence spending.
Merkel acknowledged that the moment had arrived for Germany and Europe to rethink their role in the world.
The German leader also reiterated that said she is not ready to "give up on G7" but at the same time would seek dialogue with Russian Federation and try to "work very closely" with Japan, Canada, India and China.
"On the issue of trade, we have been able to agree on important questions to us", she added, stressing that it was "important to have a commitment to rules-based trade".
