The recent G-7 Summit has been largely described a contentious event, and, according to CBS News senior global affairs contributor Ian Bremmer, it included a moment in which President Trump reportedly “threw” Starburst on the table.
Bremmer told CBS News on Wednesday that during a discussion about the joint G-7 statement, the U.S. president “stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, 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 give you anything.’”
Days later, Trump took another swipe at the German Chancellor, tweeting, “The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition.”
“Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!” Trump further noted.
Merkel has since disputed Trump’s claim about the crime data.
