The US President's threat of a trade war against allies triggered the huge infighting among the big economies of the world.

Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump

A photo of  Angela Merkel and other world leaders standing over Donald Trump at the G7 summit in Canada was given the meme treatment on social media, with Twitter users pouncing on it to take humorous digs at the scene of squabbling leaders of the world. It was not G7 so much as a 'G6 + 1'the Japanese Prime Minister said, taking the mickey out of Donald Trump. 

The US President's threat of a trade war against allies triggered the huge infighting among the big economies of the world.  It's not only ordinary people who behave like this when confronted with differences and while facing people who are not exactly universally popular. 

The meme treatment was given to the Singapore summit too where a rushing Donald met Kim Jong-un and declared himself satisfied that he has saved the world from nuclear disaster. In the end, Kim may have had the last word as he gained recognition for his reclusive North Korea while merely promising to de-nuke his country. 

Donald believed he had become such good pals with Kim that he showed the North Korean dictator the innards of 'The Beast', which is the bomb and bullet-proof limo in which he travels. The debate rages over whether the world is a safer place after the Sentosa meeting, but it is certainly more of warring place about trade after Trump's threats to G7. The twitterati had a feast of a time  gorging over the endless mirth caused by world leaders.

Trump-Kim handshake further evidence we live in age of the macho, maverick despot. No one quite sure what’s been achieved, but the optics look good;and optics at times matter more than reality in a ‘new’ world. Let’s hope we’ve taken a step to a nuke-free world.

So he who is hated and termed incompetent by large sections of the refined and intelligent American media did more diplomatically than his politically correct predecessor could. Hope the same media will acknowledge that

Trump has turned around the rulebook on how the refined set want a politician to behave. Ultimately, it is not about suiting your sense of taste but getting results. Engaging with North Korea is historic. #TrumpKimSummit

Observations from the #TrumpKimSummit:
1. Trump is scared
2. Possible worst combination of haircuts in the history of this planet 
3. Hand size appears to be the same
4. Kim Jong Un wearing a special version of his dictator outfit
5. Trump and Kim are a match made in heaven

Two mentally unstable pathological liars have signed a joint statement that neither of them has any intention of honoring. Take note of the political reporters who are praising this bullshit, and never listen to them again. #TrumpKimSummit

Trump just congratulated himself & everyone in the room for handing Kim Jong Un everything he wanted on a silver platter. Like giving candy to a dictatorial baby. This will be a model for all other world leaders on how to play Trump and the U.S. Sad. Depressing. #TrumpKimSummit

Today, as on many days, I would pay hard cash for access to Angela Merkel’s inner monologue

 Rory Wood @XiPimping
I’d love to see a transcript of this speech. It’s just a clause within a clause within a clause within an unfinished sentence trailing off onto an irrelevant anecdote about his uncle who was a ‘genius at nuclear’ interspersed with the word ‘tremendous’. #TrumpKimSummit

Trump’s news conference is an ineffable combination of stupidity, cupidity, senility and pathological lying, all delivered like flaming gas from the depths of hell. #TrumpKimSummit | South Korea | Trump and Kim | Korean
