DONALD Trump was seen puckering up for a big awkward kiss with Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G7 summit in Biarritz, France.
Although the pair have had a frosty relationship in the past, they appeared to be on friendlier terms yesterday.

Trump and Merkel were part of a line up of world leaders that included the likes of Boris Johnson and Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau.
All were seen posing on stage for the traditional “family photo” which happens every year.
However once the leaders and their significant others were meeting and greeting one another, Trump was spotted leaning in for a peck with Merkel.
Although no kisses were spotted between Trump and Johnson, the pair saw each other at the G7 Summit with Trump describing their meeting as “fantastic”.
The US president promised a “huge deal” would happen after we left the EU.
Trump said Brussels was an “anchor” around Britain and he wanted to broker a trade agreement “quickly” – describing Boris was the “right man” to deliver Brexit.
And speaking to the media after discussions with the US President, Johnson claimed that “full of beans” Trump was ambitious that a deal could be reached in just a year.
But the PM played it down, saying he wanted to take time to make sure a wide-reaching agreement was signed.
He warned that a deal with the “protectionist” US would not be “plain sailing”.
As Boris and Trump cemented the special relationship between the UK and America, marking a new age between the two nations:
- Boris was cautious about “obstacles” ahead of any deal but said a big agreement was on the cards
- And BoJo asked him to open up America to Melton Mowbray pork pies and slash red tape on other goods in any post-Brexit trade deal
- The new PM had dinner with six other world leaders last night as he made his debut on the world stage
- And he told the EU’s Donald Tusk today that the UK isn’t legally obliged to pay them the full £39billion if we leave without a deal
- Boris reportedly took an early-morning dip in the sea before meetings began
President Trump said: “He’s is the right man for the job, I’ve been saying that for a long time.”
Boris said he expected a US/UK trade deal once “we work a couple things out.”
The pair appear to be incredibly close as world leaders – and have spoken on the phone at least five times in the last month.
Later today Johnson will meet Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Japanese PM Shinzō Abe and Italian PM Giuseppe Conte – who recently resigned.
The mass fires in the Amazon rainforest are expected to be high on the agenda – with the PM pledging £10million to help protect them.
