Trump swapped G20 summit for golf after fleeting forum appearance

A source with access to the online sessions, closed to the media, said that Trump explained having done “an absolutely incredible job during his tenure, economically and with the pandemic.”

It was an exercise in “self-advertising”, according to that source, who added that “he said nothing about the global situation.”

“It has been an honor working with you and I look forward to working with you in the future and for a long time to come,” the president said, according to another participant.

When his videoconference speech ended, Trump left and replaced Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, while other world leaders continued to speak.

Later, he left the White House and headed to a golf course in Virginia, near Washington, where he was greeted by a handful of supporters, one of them holding a banner that read “four more years.”
