As the leaders of the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, and Japan walked on foot through the streets of Taormina, Sicily on Saturday during the G7 summit, Trump followed behind them in a golf cart, according to The Times of London.
“They walked the 700 yards from the traditional G7 group photo, taken at a Greek amphitheater, to a piazza in the hilltop town, but Mr. Trump stayed behind until he could take a seat in the electric vehicle,” The Times reported.
The hits just keep on comin'

The report also noted that Trump was the last leader to arrive for a group photo as the 6 other leaders stood waiting for him.
On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly claimed his opponents didn’t have the energy necessary to serve as president. Trump criticized
“She doesn’t have the look. She doesn’t have the stamina, I said she doesn’t have the stamina, and I don’t believe she does have the stamina,” Trump said of Hillary Clinton during a 2016 presidential debate.
Unfazed, Clinton responded: “As soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, and a cease-fire, a release of dissidents, an opening of new opportunities in nations around the world, or even spends 11 hours testifying in front of a congressional committee, he can talk to me about stamina.”
Last week, a senior White House official said President Trump avoided the term “radical Islamic terrorism” during a speech to leaders of more than 50 Muslim-majority nations Sunday in Saudi Arabia because he was “just an exhausted guy” after 14 hours of travel and much time working on his speech.
Here’s how Twitter is reacting to the news:
He doesn't excercise because our bodies are born with a finite amount of energy and you wasted by using it on exercise. No joke. His belief https://t.co/JZobravbNQ
