    Viral G7 photo released by Germany.

    The G7 photo that went viral Saturday appeared to say 1,000 words: President Trump, sitting with his arms crossed, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing him, leaning forward and surrounded by other leaders. Released by the German federal government, it contrasted heavily with the official White House photos that showed more conciliatory photos of Mr. Trump and the other world leaders.

    The photo from Merkel's office went viral Saturday before Mr. Trump retracted his earlier signing of the final statement. Mr. Trump tweeted that after "false statements" from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, he had instructed his representatives "not to endorse" the final communique

    this is why it's important that we make sure the world knows that Trump doesn't represent the vast majority of American's. So that, maybe, when they all get tired of him, they won't take it out on those of us who never voted for him. And hold on day by day until we can vote him out of office.

    The petulant child fresh from alienating every single ally of America it took a century to build is now ready to land in China to be with his people, North Korea, China, and Russia who he will be respectful to. They in return will treat our fool like a king and all will be well in Trumps world. His followers will support him no matter how far down he drags our country, God help us.

    Omg... You all hate trump so much that you won't even look at what is happening in that image.

    It's pathetic... In the other thread, I've pressed 10 times, and at most it was 2 people that were spotted in that image. Trump and Bolton.

    The only comments insults. With no justification.

    Can anyone explain what that image is showing?

    to clarify. The topic of this thread is how the image in the OP has gone viral. The only "justification" needed to comment is an active account on social media ( including this site itself ). That's allows for discussions of topic as we see fit based on the posting guidelines. Each of us, we all, are entitled to our opinions. That includes yourself. Obviously, we're all going to interpret the body language in the image in our own way. But, generally speaking, when someone crosses their arms it means they're closing themselves off.

    When someone crosses their arms, it usually means that they're closed for arguments. By crossing the arms, a barrier is put in front of the body, as some sort of protection. Putting an object in front of you may be the same signal.

    Another reason for crossing arms may be that you're feeling vulnerable or insecure. The crossing of arms may then be interpreted as a sort of "self-hug", to comfort yourself.
    What do arms crossed mean?

    That, along with his expression, as well as the expressions of those around him, gives the impression of a petulant child, having to be coddled by the adults in the room trying to reason with him.

    Ahem. I doubt that Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal or, for that matter, Melania Trump will agree.

    Only 2 people had crossed arms... Thanks for confirming the ONLY THING ANYONE SO FAR can see in that image... Turn off your hate-on for trump long enough to look at the image.

    France and Germany weigh in

    France's Elysee Palace said Sunday that the country and Europe as a whole maintained their support for the communique.

    "International cooperation can't depend on anger and small words. Let's be serious and worthy of our people. We spent two days obtaining a draft and commitments. We stick to it. And anyone who leaves and turns their back on them shows their inconsistency," the palace said.

    German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Trump's announcement.

    "It's actually not a real surprise. We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal. In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters. To build that up again will take much longer," he told reporters in Berlin.
