As Donald Trump departed the G7 summit in Canada four hours early, CNN reported, skipping an important conference on climate change with the remaining six world leaders — and then pulling back his support for the traditional joint statement made by the seven leaders to wrap up the summit, as Newsweek reported — German Chancellor Angela Merkel shared a photo to her official Instagram account that sent Twitter into a frenzy, with social media users assuming that the photo showed Merkel scolding Trump.

The photo, Vanity Fair reported, showed "the whole group in what looks like a heated debate, Trump with his arms crossed and Merkel leaning in front of his table as if she'd like to leap over it."

Trump's self-imposed isolation from the leaders of six other major world democracies began on Friday as Trump called for the G7 to add Russia back into the group, even though Russia has not reversed its annexation of Crimea which is what led the G7 to expel Russia in 2014, according to CNN. In Trump's closing press conference, he again called for Russia to be reinstated, while taking to his Twitter account to ridicule Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "very dishonest and weak."

Here's the full Instagram photo shared by Merkel.

Merkel responded to Trump's tweets as well, calling them "sobering and depressing, " according to the French Press Agency.

Comedian Kathy Griffin also praised Merkel for posting the G7 photo.

Even the media in India wondered if Trump was being scolded by an angry Merkel.
