A picture paints a thousand words and this one speaks of political turmoil. The 44th G7 Summit was held this past weekend in Canada and from what has been revealed through Twitter, it appears things didn’t go so well.

Including some of the US’s most powerful allies as well as making up 60% of the world’s wealth – the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Japan, Canada, and Italy – the annual summit started off on unsteady ground as Donald Trump announced tariffs to be imposed on the EU and Canada. These disputes over trade policy rocked the event with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron promising to retaliate. Of course, Trump took to Twitter to publicly insult the leaders.

As the summit with North-Korean leader Kim Jong-Un begins, speculations have sparked as to whether this most recent event will have an impact on the outcome in Singapore.

And just to compare the declining relations between the world leaders, this is what the G7 Summit looked like when Barack Obama was in office. More to come.
