The story of secret dinner with Putin is fake and sick, says Trump
Washington, July 19: Following reports emerging of US President Donald Trump having a second, undisclosed meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit, President Trump asserted that it was no secret meeting and that the press was informed. Famous for his Tweets, the US president took social media platform to express his anguish.
Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is "sick." All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 19, 2017
Trump's livid reaction comes after it was revealed that besides their 'overtime' bilateral meeting at the G20 Summit, the U.S. President and his Russian counterpart had another meeting the same day.
"There was a couples-only social dinner at the G20. Toward the end, the President spoke to Putin at the dinner. No staff or Cabinet were at the dinner at all, for any of the countries," National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN.
Anton further informed that Trump and Putin did not go to a separate room for their conversation, but remained in the main room, where the dinner was being hosted.
