President Joe Biden’s first day at the G7 kicked off some blossoming bromances, as the American president wrapped his arm around French President Emmanuel Macron and joked around with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

As the leaders gathered on the beach in Cornwall Friday, with the Atlantic Ocean behind them, Biden joked: ‘Everybody in the water.’

Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, however, suggested they gather for a group picture.

‘Okay, here we are folks – right. Everybody here? Alright, we’ve got it,’ Johnson said as photogs snapped socially distant pictures of the seven leaders standing apart from one another on a platform built on the sand.

The British PM, as host leader, took the lead in greeting the leaders of seven most industrialized nations, exchanging elbow bumps and herding them into place for the group pic.

As the leaders left the photo op for their first sit down, French President Emmanuel Macron took the opportunity to throw his arm around Biden’s shoulders and begin an animated discussion.

‘How that we are together, united, determined to make a difference, it’s time to deliver. I’m sure we will @JoeBiden,’ Macron tweeted after their friendly greeting.

The images of Biden interacting with world leaders contrast starkly with some of the imagery from President Donald Trump’s four years.

During the 2018 G7 summit a photo went viral of Trump, seated with his arms crossed, staring down German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Macron is by her side, while Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe – the first world leader to meet Trump as president-elect – has his arms crossed too, watching the back-and-forth.

Then during a 2019 NATO summit, Johnson, Trudeau and Macron were seemingly caught on camera gossiping about Trump.

The leaders looked to be talking about Trump’s unscripted press conferences.

‘You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor,’ Trudeau uttered.

Biden, of course, has far more experience on the world stage than Trump, who was a real estate investor and reality TV star before running for office.

Biden was chosen to be President Barack Obama’s vice president after serving on the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations for years.

Biden is meeting with some of the U.S.’s top allies at the G7 and then in Belgium, Brussels for a NATO meeting before he goes on to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland.

Biden was asked by reporters Friday what his message would be to Putin.

‘I’ll tell you after I deliver it,’ the president said.
