Trump calls into virtual G20 summit, talks COVID-19 with world leaders

November 21, 2020

TRUMP TAKES CREDIT FOR PFIZER VACCINE DEVELOPMENT, SAYS AMERICANS WOULDN'T HAVE ONE YET WITHOUT HIS LEADERSHIP

Trump was set to beam in to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from the White House Situation Room for a meeting chaired by King Salman and attended by the leaders of 19 leading world economies. The international response to the pandemic was expected to be at the top of the agenda.

A lavish G20 gathering that had been set for the Saudi capital, complete with elaborate greeting ceremonies and elegant dinners, was sharply curtailed in September due to the worsening health crisis.
