President Donald Trump made quite the splash at the G7 summit of world leaders, hosted in France. The splash was more from a belly flop than a swan dive.
One awkward moment came during a joint presser with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, upon whom Trump lavished praise.
After assuring that he would take Chancellor Merkel up on her invitation for a state visit to Germany, the President boasted that he had "German in his blood," to which Merkel audibly snorted.
Merkel is clearly very excited about the prospect of Trump visiting Germany https://t.co/fXHa1YlnnN— Marcel Dirsus (@Marcel Dirsus)1566831159.0
"I'm very honored by the invitation. And it's true. And we will be there. And maybe soon. I have German in my blood."
People speculated on what spurred Merkel's laughter and other world leaders' reactions to Trump.

Trump, however, does have German roots. His grandfather immigrated from Germany in the 19th century. In the past, he's inaccurately stated that his father was born in Germany.
It was far from the only awkward or disturbing moment during Trump's time at the G7.
An awkward attempt to kiss Merkel also made headlines.
