It took a while for President Donald Trump to get into the flow of his weekend Twitter communications. The reason was understandable, though, and golf can’t be blamed this time.
Instead, the Commander-in-Tweet was busy winging from Osaka, Japan and the G-20 Summit to South Korea, where he’s meeting our allies and may journey to the DMZ to shake hands with North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un in a grip and grin session.
The Twitter reports were upbeat from Trump. The trade tariffs war with China was apparently toned down at the G-20, even as some pundits raised a skeptical eye on the benefits of doing that.
