It’s about sustainability, not trolling Trump

A Norwegian official say five Nordic prime ministers who posed for a photo clutching a soccer ball weren’t intending to make fun of a viral image from U.S. President Donald Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia. It was meant to promote U.N. sustainability goals, which were written on the soccer ball. (Photos: AP)
