President Donald Trump reportedly tossed candy at German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the recent G7 summit.
According to CBS News correspondent Ian Bremmer, Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pressed Trump to sign a communique to commit to a rules-based international order.
“Trump was sitting there with his arms crossed, clearly not liking the fact that he felt like they were ganging up on him,” Bremmer reported. “Eventually he agreed. He said, okay I’ll sign it.”
“At that point, he stood up, he put his hand in his suit jacket pocket and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the table and said to Merkel, ‘Here, Angela, don’t say I never gave you anything,'” Bremmer explained.
The correspondent said that the exchanged showed Trump’s “emotional state.”
Trump eventually removed his name from the communique.
“His personal relationship with Merkel is deeply broken,” Bremmer added. “The leaders obviously do not respect each other.”
