A senior US government official says Donald Trump will attend the G20 summit. This year, the summit of the leaders of the top 20 economies in the world will be held in Saudi Arabia virtually. The G20 countries include the top seven economies of the world and 13 emerging powers, and meet as usual in December each year.
Donald Trump’s presence at the summit was uncertain given the controversial US presidential election. News sources reported on the morning of Saturday, November 21, quoting a senior White House official, that Trump would attend the summit.
The meeting of the representatives of the top 20 economies of the world due to the Coronavirus pandemic will be held virtually via video conference and will be hosted by Saudi Arabia.
“The G-20 lost its way years ago. But it’s definitely been worse in the Trump era,” said Matthew Goodman, of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, who helped coordinate Obama’s summit appearances. “There’s no sense now of the common purpose that was there in 2008-2009.”
The Corona crisis has been announced as the first topic of this year’s G20 consultations. The 2020 G20summit will be attended by representatives from Singapore, Spain and Switzerland, as well as international organizations, including the United Nations, the World Bank and the World Health Organization.
As of Saturday, more than 57.5 million cases of Covid 19 have been identified in 191 countries, and about 1.3 million people have died. The G20 summit will be chaired by the King of the host country, Mohammed bin Salman, and will focus on climate change and consultations on international cooperation to deal with the crisis.
Donald Trump is one of the world leaders who has been widely criticized for not taking the Coronavirus crisis seriously and for failing to take effective measures to combat its widespread spread.
The President of the United States has accused the World Health Organization of failing to provide clear and accurate information on the Coronavirus crisis and has terminated the United States’ membership in the United Nations.
“Finance and central bank officials, including from the United States, have done a great job trying to mitigate the economic fallout from the pandemic and ensuring that the financial system moderated rather than amplified shocks,” said Daniel Price, managing director of Rock Creek Global Advisors.
The United States is currently the most affected country in the world by the Corona crisis. The number of infected people in the United States exceeds 12,287,642 cases and 260,427 deaths.
Climate change, which has been announced as the second main focus of consultations in Saudi Arabia, is also one of the issues that Donald Trump does not believe in much. One of Trump’s first moves after entering the White House was to announce the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Agreement to combat climate change.
Donald Trump lost the November 3 presidential election to his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, but has so far refused to accept the election result. He claims that Biden’s declaration of victory was the result of fraud and vote rigging.
