A video was shared on Twitter by journalist Shyam Meera Singh on May 24, featuring a video clip of US President Joe Biden "ignoring" Modi to talk to the newly elected Australian PM Anthony Albanese. The caption "World Leader" (translated) was used in the Tweet.
The popular parody handle @RoflGandhi_ also Tweeted the same video with the sarcastic caption "Biden didn't even dare to look at Modi for he is the world leader." (translated)
The two Tweets have had thousands of views and retweets.
Searching with keywords like "Quad Summit", "Modi" and "Biden", a relevant news report by WION was found. The article featured a video of the meeting.
