United States (US) President Donald Trump went golfing after making a brief online appearance at the G20 summit Saturday, an event hosted by Saudi Arabia but staged virtually because of Covid-19.
Trump, who has still not accepted defeat following President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in November 3 presidential polls, spoke following the opening of the two-day virtual summit.
A source with access to the online sessions, which were closed to the media, reported that Trump had “said that he had done an absolutely incredible job during his term, economically and with the pandemic”.
It was an exercise in “self-publicity” said the source, adding that “he didn’t say anything about the global situation”.
“It’s been an honour working with you and I look forward to working with you in the future and for a long time,” he said according to a second participant.
