President Trump’s G20 summit was a success, holds Liz Peek of Fox News. Paramount was getting key concessions from China while also working towards ending the tough tariffs that both countries imposed on one another. Xi Jinping agreed to buy more American products, which will benefit the economy and promised to further help contain North Korea. Additionally, Trump said what had to be said to some European countries; their tariffs on US goods are disproportionately high, which costs the American tax payer for no good reason. Making sure these countries no longer take advantage of the US is a major step forward.
Donald Trump’s G20 summit was filled with awkwardness and diplomatic blunders, suggests News.com Australia. Paramount was the strange way he hurried offstage during a photo session with other countries’ leaders. Video footage of the event shows Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri looking at him confused as a member of the event hurries after Trump. To make matters worse, the US president could be heard saying “get me out of here” while still wearing his microphone, proving his discomfort in the situation. This reflects a long-standing awkwardness during public events that has previously been seen at other international meetings.
