In the Group of 20 “family photo,” the longest-serving leaders are positioned closer to the center with the host nation’s leader directly in the center — leaving President Trump on the edge next to French President Emmanuel Macron in the images taken in Hamburg, Germany. 

Protocol for the traditional family photo means those who have been in office the longest get the center positions in the photo. 

The only exception is the host nation, meaning German Chancellor Angela Merkel gets the front-and-center spot. 

Trump, who has been president for less than seven months, was positioned near the end of the first row right next to newly elected Macron.
