DONALD Trump is known for his off-the-cuff comments but a photo from today’s G20 summit shows he may have gone one step too far for Angela Merkel.

Pictured with a stricken face and eyes wide open in despair, the German Chancellor is clearly in shock as she listens to the US President talk following a meeting at the event in Hamburg this afternoon.

The billionaire business man seems none the wiser at first, gesticulating widely as he carries on chatting to fellow heads of state.

But a second image shows Ms Merkel in a more fragile state, with her head in her hands as she stands among her allies.

The US President is seen looking down at his political rival with confusion and concern, while other politicians stand around without a reaction.

Donald Trump is likely to play a huge part of discussions during the two-day summit in one of Germany’s largest cities, after the US pulled out of the Paris climate change agreement.

Mr Trump arrived in Hamburg last night where he had a “great meeting” with Angela Merkel as the two leaders attempted to put aside some of their differences over trade and climate change on the eve of the summit.

The meeting threatened to become the most controversial gatherings in recent years but Mr Trump suggested the talks kicked off on a more happier note on social media.

He tweeted: “I look forward to all meetings today with world leaders, including my meeting with Vladimir Putin. Much to discuss.”

Mr Trump is due to meet the Russian president on Friday for the first time at 3.45pm today for the first official sit down meeting between the warring pair.
