As Trump's World Turns: The Empty Chair And An Empty Suit

Yesterday we opened a piece with the following image.

No photo description available.

The developer of the image may have worked their craft based on Trump's history when meeting with long-standing US allies at the G7. Well, the artist simply nailed the eventual outcome of Trump at the G7.

As we develop this piece, it is important to keep in mind Trump lobbied for {utin;s attention at the G7. Retraction and correction he actually lobbied for Putin's re-entry into the annual meeting of international "democratic" nations leadership meetings. As you know after Putin annexed Crimea the G* leadership unanimously voted to exorcised Russia from the G7.  I offer Russia should never have been allowed to join the more fore G7, but 1990s hope of a more democratic Russia led to a major international blunder: Russia as the eight-member of the intentional conference.

Alas, Trump doesn't care one today about the charter of the G7. His major ambition regarding the important grouping is his opportunity to suckle-up to Putin.  As I think in terms of expanding the last point, Trump seems to measure his affinity for international leaders (almost always authoritarian bad actor).  While seeking the Oval Office (US Presidency) is alleged to have coached active participants in negotiation for building a Trump Tower in Moscow.  Of all sources, the Moscow Times on Trump's tower deal. A $50 million penthouse in the tower for Putin?

Putin aside, how often have you heard and witnessed trump proclaiming the future "potential" for North Korea.  When you hear that do you believe Trump has a personal interest in the people of North Korea. moreover, I posit he doesn't give a serious damn about  Jong-UN.  Money serves as Trups driving paradigm and stating potential for North Korea means building projects. He even once mentioned a shoreline in North Korea which could be a site for some sort of building, resort or complex. Business Insider.

I digress, let's visit with the G7.

CNN's JIM Scuitto offers a very good summary and commentary.

Climate meeting. So Trump has stated he met with two international leaders while the Climate the meeting took place. The two leaders: Germany and India.  The image below shows Trump simply added to his lie total,
