Trump goes golfing in middle of summit

Trump Goes On Saturday Night Tweeting Spree: ‘The Media’ Just As ‘Corrupt As The Election Itself!’

Trump appeared among almost two dozen leaders to speak at the start of the summit hosted by Saudi Arabia when it began at 8 a.m. EST, joining via video conference from the White House Situation Room.

But just 13 minutes after 8 a.m. ET, the start time, Trump is sending tweets focusing on his efforts to overturn the results of the USA presidential election.

The White House released a statement after he spoke on the opening day.

Pelosi's press office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider. Soon after the summit began, however, the president started tweeting about the election. "President Trump also reaffirmed the importance of the G20 working together for future economic growth and prosperity", she added.

He also boasted about Operation Warp Speed, the USA government's push for a coronavirus vaccine, that only funded one of two potentially successful candidates.

According to Politico Europe, Trump indicated to other G-20 leaders that he wants USA citizens to be the first to receive coronavirus vaccinations. BioNTech is a biotechnology firm based in Germany.

Several outlets, including The New York Times and The Guardian, reported that Trump briefly took part in a motorcade on his Sterling, Virginia property on Saturday.

He continued to show off the United States economy and military, and repeated false claims that his government's Warp Speed operation was behind the first two successful vaccines for the coronavirus.

Since Joe Biden was declared the victor of the November 7 election, leaders around the world have congratulated Biden, including Midron; Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson; Canadian President Justin Trudeau acknowledged his victory despite Trump's refusal.

US President Donald Trump has stressed his efforts to fight the coronavirus while promoting his moves to fix the US economy devastated by the pandemic.

The U.S. has reported more than 12 million infections as of Saturday, according to The New York Times coronavirus database.

Earlier, it was reported that the number of coronavirus cases confirmed all over the world had surpassed 58 million, according to the latest data from the Johns Hopkins University's Coronavirus Resource Center.
