Social media users imagine Trump and Putin's meeting

Eagerly anticipating the #Trump and #Putin memes coming out of the #G20HAM summit.
Social media users have been imagining how the encounter between the US and Russian Presidents may go when they meet at the G20 summit in Hamburg today.
On Twitter users posted jokes and photoshopped pictures ahead of what we might expect from the discussion between two of the most powerful leaders in the world.
Today's meeting has been preceded by months of speculation about a 'bromance' between the two leaders. It was fuelled by allegations ofRussian interference in last year's US election, and the perception Russia strongly favoured Mr Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
In particular, critics of the relationship between the two men have, ahead of the meeting, shared images of Mr Putin manipulating Mr Trump.

This mock up of the two leaders kissing was widely shared, suggesting, despite their differences on the crises in Syria and Ukraine, the two have a mutual understanding and affection for one another.
Vladimir Putin has been fairly guarded about his views on President Trump. His most recent comment on his US counterpart was in June, where he described Trump as "direct and open" person, who has a "fresh view".
Mr Trump has said equally favourable things about his Russian counterpart although more recently he has been more reserved.

The opening of the G20 summit was marred by protests in which 76 police officers have been injured.
