Awkward moment at climate change summit in Germany when President Obama keeps his back turned to Iraqi Prime Minister.
President Obama and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi had an awkward moment at the G-7 summit in Germany, when al-Abadi sat down next to Obama after a group photo and was obviously hoping to speak with him but only got his back.
Obama appeared engrossed in a conversation with International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde and Italian Prime Minister Mario Renzi and didn’t acknowledge al-Abadi.
CBS This Morning reported on the footage Monday, with White House correspondent Major Garrett calling it “an awkward moment amid careful summit choreography.”
