As President Donald Trump arrived in Hamburg, Germany, on Thursday before the start of the G-20 summit, he posed for a photo op with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The two are not known for their warm demeanor toward each other, and the latest photos suggest nothing has changed since they first met at the White House in March. 

The following image from their second one-on-one is perhaps the definition of “awkward.” (They also met up at a NATO summit in May, but they were part of a gaggle of leaders then.)
