President Trump Arrives At G20 Welcomed By World Leaders, Mueller Tags Along
President Trump arrived in Argentina for the G20 summit with the First Lady at his side and they were warmly greeted by the Argentinian President and other world leaders. One world leader who Trump won't be meeting with is Russian President Vladimir Putin. President Trump abruptly canceled his meeting with Putin at the G20 summit allegedly over the current conflicts in the Black Sea.
The President's administration hopes that the G20 trip will showcase Trump's unique talent for dealmaking. However, special counsel Robert Mueller who was appointed to investigate Russian collusion nearly two years ago and has yet to find a thing, also arrived in Argentina to trail the President's every move.
Former New York mayor and now a legal advisor to President Trump, Rudy Giuliani called out Mueller and Michael Cohen for announcing a deal between the two parties just as Trump is arriving at the G20 summit. Giuliani represents Trump in the Russia probe and had this to say:
"It's no surprise that Cohen lied to Congress. He's a proven liar who is doing everything he can to get out of a long-term prison sentence for serious crimes of bank and tax fraud that had nothing to do with the Trump Organization. It is important to understand that documents that the Special Counsel’s Office is using to show that Cohen lied to Congress were voluntarily disclosed by the Trump Organization because there was nothing to hide."
He also added that Mueller timed Cohen's guilty plea to coincide with Trump's arrival for the Group of 20 (G20) summit in Argentina. Giuliani also noted that Mueller "did the very same thing as the President was leaving for a world summit in Helsinki." When news broke of Cohen's guilty plea, Trump slammed his former attorney as a "weak person" and accused him of "lying" in order to get a better deal.
As he was leaving for Argentina, Trump told reporters, "He's a weak person and not a very smart person. What he’s trying to do is … he’s got himself a big prison sentence and he’s trying to get a much lesser prison sentence by making up a story." G20 will prove an important test for the President of the United States as he is slated to meet with important world leaders including Chinese President Xi Jinping.
A former senior official from the Trump administration said the truth of the matter is more in line with what Trump and Giuliani have said, which is that Mueller's aggressive tactics are unwarranted and Cohen is doing his best to please Mueller in order to get a lesser sentence. Why the two are even related is a mystery, nothing Cohen has been charged with is related to Russian collusion.
The former administration official said, "Shit if Cohen broke the law, he’s probably no different than anyone else. He’s trying to take care of himself. When you’re worried about losing your fortune, losing your liberty — who knows what you’ll say." While at the summit, President Trump signed a great new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada. Naturally, with Trump's arrival, far left critics were there to greet him in Buenos Aires with a giant baby Trump balloon. How childish can people be?
Why is special counsel Robert Mueller still wasting taxpayer money to the tune of millions of dollars anyway? His job was to root out any potential Russian collusion and he found none, case closed. Why is he still following President Trump around the world? Shortly after his return from the G20 summit, the White House Twitter account posted this video with a caption from the U.S. President saying, "Great day at the #G20Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Thank you!"
