SOLV­ING THE ‘IR­RI­TANTS’

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Pres­i­dent Trump and Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin soon will meet face-to-face, which cer­tainly will add a new di­men­sion and maybe some hys­te­ria to the me­dia’s pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with “Rus­sia col­lu­sion” and other mat­ters. The place will be Ham­burg, Ger­many, late next week; the oc­ca­sion will be the “side­lines” of the G-20 sum­mit.

“There’s no spe­cific agenda. It’s re­ally go­ing to be what­ever the pres­i­dent wants to talk about,” White House Na­tional Se­cu­rity Ad­viser H.R. McMaster said dur­ing an off-cam­era brief­ing with the press on Thurs­day, also not­ing that Mr. Trump plans to ad­dress cer­tain un­named “ir­ri­tants.”

It will be a busy time, and a truly global oc­ca­sion that could suit Mr. Trump just fine. Ac­cord­ing to press re­ports, he also will meet with Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping, Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May, Ja­panese Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe, Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel and Mex­i­can Pres­i­dent En­rique Pena Ni­eto, among oth­ers.
