Trump-Putin Bromance Only Highlight of G20 Summit

"It’s amazing how the world begins to change through the eyes of a cup of coffee." - Donna A. Favors

Good Day World!

Bring in the clowns!

The much anticipated G20 summit opened with...laughter!

It was a sight to see. 

Trump and Putin did a great comedy team routine where Trump laughingly told Putin not to interfere in our next election.

Their smiles glowed with inner knowledge while a hoard of reporters watched them mock the idea of Russian election interference in our next election.

That was it though.

Trump meant with China's Xi Jinping and agreed to scale back restrictions on Chinese technology giant Huawei and delay new tariffs.

 In return China said they'd buy "large amounts" of farm products. The bottom line; there's nothing in writing.

They swapped phony pleasant greetings for about 90 minutes and Trump waddled away claiming trade talks were "on track" with China.

If Wall Street was waiting for a big breakthrough the reality must have been tough to deal with. Mr. Art-of-the-No-Deal once again waddled away with vague promises of a better day.

As usual, Trump spent his quality time with other world leaders by harassing them over supposed wrongs.

However, when it comes to dictators it was a different story.

He even extended another invitation to meet with his little buddy that writes "beautiful letters" in North Korea.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
