World leaders met in Hamburg, Germany, today for a meeting of the G20. Despite Donald Trump denying that he had ever met with Russian President Vladimir Putin throughout the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Trump claimed that he met Putin several times before his campaign.
While it may or may not be the first time the two men have met, they did have their first meeting as world leaders at the summit this morning. So Twitter users were understandably excited when photos and videos emerged online...
And yes, it became a meme.
