German Chancellor Scholz and US Sen. Coons were ‘twinning’ in DC

U.S. Sen. Chris Coons and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz met in Washington, D.C., this week, and both looked double-eyed when they shared their mirror images with the world on social media.

The leaders of the Delaware Democratic Party and the German coalition share unusual similarities, right down to their bald heads and narrow-eyed smiles. The two showed it off in a selfie taken by Coons on Thursday when Scholz visited the nation’s capital to promote U.S. aid to Ukraine. During the ongoing war with Russia.

Scholz traveled to Washington to highlight the risks the Ukraine conflict poses to the United States, Europe and other countries. Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated earlier this week that the February 2022 invasion was aimed at defending the country’s interests. Kiev claims the attack was an unprovoked invasion.

“Without support from the United States and without support from European countries, Ukraine has no chance of defending itself,” Scholz said.
