Trump defends relationship with G7 leaders

Washington, June 16: US President Donald Trump has said that his relationship with the rest of the G7 leaders is good as he accused the media of not telling the truth about the summit in Canada. Trump posted a dozen photographs on his Twitter account on late Friday in which he was surrounded by the rest of the G7 leaders during the June 8-9 summit, all of them smiling and relaxed. “I have a great relationship with Angela Merkel of Germany but the Fake News Media only shows the bad photos (implying anger) of negotiating an agreement, where I am asking for things that no other American President would ask for!” Trump wrote. He posted a few photos that showed him seated on one side of the table with the rest of the leaders, including Merkel, standing on the other side. Unlike the photos that have emerged so far of the summit, which hinted at tension, in those shared by Trump, all leaders seem to be smiling, Efe news reported. “The Fake News Media said that I did not get along with other Leaders at the G7Summit in Canada. They are once again, Wrong!” Trump said in another tweet. (IANS)
