Trump is absent from the special session of the G20's Covid-19 to play golf

This should be the last time Trump will attend an international summit as a national leader, but he doesn’t cherish it. At the oncoming G20 summit, he not only tweeted at the opening ceremony, but also “turned up” another special meeting on the new coronavirus outbreak, and the media broke the news that he was playing golf again.

Trump is “clearly not interested in the G20 summit,” CNN reported on Nov. 21. He is still struggling with the “big picture” of the U.S. election, refusing to concede defeat.

Earlier this week, it was unclear whether Trump would attend the summit, and it was not until Late Friday, the night before the meeting, that the White House issued a presidential schedule confirming that he would attend the next day’s meeting.

Although Trump attended the opening meeting of the G20 summit at 8 a.m. Eastern Time on the 21st, 13 minutes after the start of the meeting, he seemed to have “diminished”: at 8:13, Trump updated on Twitter and continued to complain. Election fraud”; at 8:15 and 21, his Twitter account was updated continuously, and he responded to the diagnosis of the new coronavirus by his eldest son Donald Trump Jr., saying, “My son Donald is doing very well. Thank you!”

 

At 10 am, Trump left the White House and went to Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. Since the American media announced Biden’s victory, he has played here many times to “relax”.

At this time, the G20’s “Pandemic Preparedness” special meeting is being held. According to CNN reports, French President Macron, German Chancellor Merkel, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and other leaders of many countries all delivered speeches at the meeting.

But it must be noted that the British “Guardian” pointed out that in this special meeting, many leaders of countries used pre-recorded speeches.

It is also worth mentioning that according to the observation of the Guardian on November 21, no leader directly mentioned Biden’s “victory”.

However, Trump also refused to admit defeat and took this attitude internationally. “It’s an honor to work with you, and I look forward to continuing to work with you for a long time (in the future),” Trump said at the conference.

How did Trump perform at the conference? It is said to be “very different from other leaders.”

The Guardian called Trump’s speech at the conference “anomalous” and that “other leaders are talking about international issues of life and death.”

According to a report from Agence France-Presse on the same day, sources said Trump continued to “promote himself” at the meeting. “He didn’t talk about any international situation, but brag about what great work he did during his tenure, no matter economically. It’s still fighting the epidemic.”

The White House issued a statement late on Saturday (21st), saying, “In the context of the global fight against the epidemic, Trump discussed with leaders of many countries the need to restore the economy and promote employment, and reiterated the importance of the G20 to future economic prosperity. .”

Trump himself tweeted at 5:35 p.m. local time on Saturday, not mentioning the fact that the G20 “new coronavirus pandemic prevention work” meeting was “jumped”, but declared that “fake news did not report that the new coronavirus is not only in the United States. It’s the fact of a pandemic all over the world. I attended the G20 online summit this morning, and the biggest theme was the new coronavirus. We will get better soon, especially with our vaccine!”

However, no matter how Trump brags, the reality is still cruel. Under his irresponsible anti-epidemic leadership, the United States has almost become today’s super “disease” power. According to real-time data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of November 22, the United States had a total of 1,204,934 confirmed cases of Covid and a total of 255,541 deaths. In the past 24 hours, there have been 185,109 new confirmed cases in the United States and 1,598 new deaths.

Trump will attend another G20 meeting on Sunday (22nd) morning local time. CNN stated that this should be the last time Trump, as president, met with leaders of other countries at an international summit.
