The Group of 20 summit is officially billed as a gathering of leaders from the world’s major economies to focus on issues that affect all of them. But what is it really about?
President Donald Trump and other world leaders are mainly at the annual Group of 20 summit to negotiate on behalf of their countries, Bill O’Reilly explained on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
One of the big headlines from the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, is a meeting between Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, but the focus for every leader is to make deals and better their country’s economy.
Putin needed to give Trump something or become an enemy, O’Reilly asserted.
“If you’re Putin and your economy is terrible in Russia, which it is, you don’t want to be Trump’s enemy,” he said, going on to explain what the summit is really about. “The conference itself is just a schmooze-fest. And you know, they all have agendas. All countries have agendas. And they try to get a little here and a little there, kind of deals, and stuff like that. So that’s what it’s all about.”
