Tensions between the United States and the European Union saw the G7 summit end in chaos after Mr Trump refused to sign the joint statement of world leaders.
"I know it didn't look friendly", Trump said.
Captured and circulated by Mr Trump's team, another photo doesn't even show Mrs Merkel as the Republican firebrand takes centre stage in the middle of a crowd of world leaders who look to get his attention. "According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!)". In one picture, while the former USA president is seen engaging in talks with the experts, in the other picture he can be seen sharing a light moment with Angela Merkel with watching the European soccer match.
"The other leaders presented their numbers and Trump presented his".

The Hurricane Center said the storm could generate swells that cause life-threatening surf and rip currents over the coming days. Forecasters believe Aletta will keep the worst conditions well offshore, which will limit the potential for any threats to land.
"This has solidified my belief that we, Europeans, should decide our fate by ourselves", the German leader said, calling on EU to be more active in defending its values and principles.
The EU has already said it will announce countermeasures against Trump's metals tariffs on July 1.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country "will not be pushed around on trade matters." and called USA tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum "insulting". Echoing a series of comments she's made about the erosion of US-European ties, Merkel expressed consternation about Trump's disavowal of the G-7's joint closing statement.
"There remain good reasons to fight for the transatlantic partnership", she said, adding that the current round of trade tariffs that the United States and European Union have imposed on each other did not signal the end of a partnership. "After a long day of work and very direct dialogue, we are actively seeking an ambitious agreement", an English translation of Macron's tweet reads.
Although he arrived in Canada on Friday, Trump also arrived late to the G-7's summit first session on Saturday morning, a breakfast meeting about gender equality.
