Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel met with President Donald Trump for the first time Friday, and the meeting between the two world leaders was very awkward. During the photo op, journalists requested that the two world leaders shake hands.
Then during the press conference, Trump repeated his allegations that President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones and her phone, adding that —"at least we have that in common," he told Merkel.
He also called a German newspaper "fake news" after a reporter asked him a question.
He avoided looking at the German chancellor most of the time.
Twitter users didn't miss the awkward moments and expressed their embarrassment. Watch the video and read some of the tweets below:
