Caption Contest – Angela Merkel and Donald Trump at G-7
about this photo

June 9, 2018 — German Chancellor Angela Merkel posted this image on her Instagram account, taken at the G-7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec. The G7 consist of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States — countries that make up close to half the world’s GDP. US President Donald Trump acted defiantly at the meeting, imposing trade restrictions, and avoiding contentious meetings like one on climate change. Merkel and Trump have a famously tense relationship.

The German Chancellor had a tepid caption for the picture: Zweiter Tag des G7-Gipfels in Kanada: spontane Beratung am Rande der offiziellen Tagesordnung. — Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions. #G7Charlevoix


We launched a caption contest, and are sharing some of the best captions from our readers and others on social media.
