Day two of Trump’s second foreign trip.
Day one of the G20.
President Trump met with Vladimir Putin in a meeting scheduled for forty minutes. It lasted over two hours.
The reaction is as expected. Criticism from the Left. Praise from the Right.
What are the facts?
According to Secretary of State Tillerson, President Trump raised the issue of election meddling. This is important. He didn’t back away from a controversial issue.
Also reported is that the two negotiated a partial cease fire in Syria.
North Korea was also reportedly discussed with no details released.
As far as the Left’s criticisms of the day, Putin is a bad guy. I get it. But what we saw today is our President engaging with world leaders to solve problems.
This is leadership.
