Nordic prime ministers poke fun at Trump's glowing orb photo

The trolling from the group of European leaders suggests Trump's first sit-down with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members was not quite as rosy as the president claimed on Twitter.

A photo of the leaders of Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Denmark did the rounds on Twitter on Tuesday - and it bore a striking resemblance to the one of the U.S. president.

The prime ministers of Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland all stood by the edge of a lake with their hands on the ball, mocking the Trump photo.

Trump, along with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, King Salman bin Abdulaziz and First Lady Melania Trump participated in the ceremonial orb touch to "activate" the new Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology's initiative to monitor extremist activity online.

Twitter quickly went into meltdown with many convinced the Nordic leaders were trolling President Trump from his recent trip to the Middle East. The geopolitical players met to discuss cooperation among their countries, but that didn't stop them from taking time out for this photo opportunity with a soccer ball.

The five European heads of state were launching the "Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges" project aimed at meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 in Bergen, Norway on Monday, according to Nordic co-operation.
