G20 Leaders Pose for Family Photo Dinner Event…

The G20 summit in Osaka was filled with smiles, kisses, and handshakes between world leaders on their first day of meetings as they came together to discuss global issues such as trade and the digital economy.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe gathers the G20 world leaders to pose for a family photograph in front of Osaka Castle before being treated to dinner and a gala performance. It’s always interesting to watch the interactions between the G20 leaders.

Some recap video snippets of Day One:

    You know, I’m beginning to be bothered by the fact that I could name everyone of those world leaders by name. I think this website is giving me information overload…. 😉 And I used to be such a carefree girl not bothered at all by all the worldly goings on and blithely ignorant. Lol!

        POTUS a boss! Then he goes in for a double kiss on the hot woman in the black dress at 0:45. Yes, folks we have an unabashed heterosexual man in the White House!!! You fly on Air Force 1, you ride in a limo, you wear a Patek Phillipe, and you are kissing the ladies and making them cry. Walk that aisle champ!

            Looks like she could be the offspring of Melania!


          • GSparrow says:

            The writer of your Daily Mail link was insinuating P Trump turned around often to look at Maria but I noticed that Mauricio was talking to the back of Trump’s head a couple of times and that is part of the reason why he turned. Of course the DM would still say he always turned to the right side where Maria was standing and not the left where Modi was standing. Wouldn’t most men?


        • DaughterofLiberty says:

          Yep – and he cracks a joke and everyone laughs – it looks like most of them were relaxed and really enjoying themselves. Mrs. Argentina looks like she just arrived from yaughting in Cannes or Monte Carlo – suntanned, rich and beautiful; Merkle will always be a frumpy, awkward frau; May looked lost and out of place and out of sorts; Abe and Mrs. Abe having a grand ole time; the Saudi crown prince enjoying himself; Mrs. Erdogan looks like she’s wrapped in a burial shroud – what a weird ensemble; too bad Melania wasn’t there – she’d have stolen the show.

      OK, that’s the best comment EVER.

      We ain’t called The Last Refuge for nothing.

      This is where we talk about the strings on the marionettes.

      It’s awesome you can ID the world leaders. It’s awesome you can see the dynamics at play. It’s the biggest compliment to this website. THANK YOU.

      Imagine an America where everyone was this engaged, and could appreciate what President Trump is actually accomplishing? Stunning when you think about it. That quest is why CTH exists.

        You are gifted and I am very appreciative of the time, talent and writing skills it takes to convey complex issues in every man’s (and woman’s) language. Thank YOU, sir (I think… 😉 .

        What is more amazing than knowing the names of the world leaders is seeing how many irons Trump has in the fire at any given time. All of those irons are interconnected and entwined with each other.

        Trump has built an international nerve center. He is the brainstem of the world. Everybody is going to march to his tune and his tune is MAGA. Trump is the master conductor with the leaders of the world seeking his favor.

        This level of power has never existed in the world before. Trump works on power every day. He has the highest title power in the world, President of the USA. The rest of the facets of power he works on daily.

        He can crush with a single tweet. He can reward with just a kind word. He is a formidable expert in many areas. Above all that, he has that all important quality of likeability.

        Folks, this is superhero stuff and he is working for us without a paycheck.

      Don’t make me cry. I feel bad about how ignorant I was before. I’ve gotten a super education on this web site. Priceless. I appreciate Sundance and his web site so much it makes me teary. I didn’t even come here for politics, originally. I came here after Trayvon got himself shot. Within days I felt something wasn’t right about the story and looked for info and found amazing discussion here already going on. That was just a taste, a precursor maybe, of the fraud committed against us starting in late 2015 re the Presidential election.

        This Treehouse is one of the very, very few places on the web where you get thoroughly researched, accurate information with touches of well reasoned predictive analysis. It goes so far beyond what passes for journalism, opinion and research articles these days.

        I’ve known for decades that our MSM were complete frauds and propagandists, but it still occasionally takes my breath away how blessed we are living on our branches because we get TRUTH here. That is such a rare commodity in our country now.

        If I read just one article a day here, I’d still know more than 99% of our population. It’s that bad out there. Even those conservative sites that do try, still are so uninformed and mostly opinion pieces rather than factual analysis that, more often than not, miss bedrock reality. It’s so sad.

        Here, here’s a Kleenex I just happen to keep on my desk for such a time as this…. 🙂

    President Trump and his team being there make this a real world event rather than a circus clown show like it was at the beginning of President Trumps Administration.

    I remember, particularly since the media-rats continue to bombard me with Obozo and the Wookie, how embarrassing it was whenever Oboze attended these meetings. It was like an I Love Lucy catastrophe scene every time.

    Thank God for President Trump. A man who works for free, is losing money every day he is President and didn’t need to take the job in the first place. Only President Trump’s love of America and We the People caused him to give up an amazing lifestyle for a job which has turned out to make life for him and his family, a living hell. Yet he continues to Make America Great.

    No big deals announced by us?

    No deal with Japan a month ago; or today; and it seems they don’t want an ag deal separate from an auto deal (fear of tariffs). Japan papers saying a possible deal after their July elections. I don’t know the numbers, but I believe our farmers need some large purchases (pork, soybeans, wheat).

    It seems priority #1 should be finalizing USMCA.

    Then India / Vietnam possible tariffs? EU?


    • PC, the USMCA might be an improvement over NAFTA, but it shreds the Constitution!!
      I will not lose any sleep if Congress does not ratify it. They may not and we will go back to pre-NAFTA.

      PC, We hold the cards now. We can stall and wait everyone out, while their economies go in the shitter. Mexico, Canada, and China are desperate for a deal. The sanctions are killing Iran and NOKO/China. I believe that POTUS does not want any deals yet. He is not coming out and saying it because he wants to keep the stock market chugging along. So he always says “everything is great and we are going to do a deal”. In reality, he does not really want a deal. At least not yet. The status quo with tariffs and sanctions actually benefits us. China is in bad shape and will have to devalue their currency soon. This actually has the unintended consequence of keeping our inflation and our interest in check, making us stronger. Our farmers will still get their purchases. The world has to eat and they cant go on a diet. They buy from us, because they have to. All is well….

      She may not have wanted to be there. It must be tiring to be in the diplomatic lime light all the time and she’s just been through a couple of strenuous weeks of it already. And then there is Barron – she probable wants to be a mother as well as a wife sometimes.

    Barron is home from school, for vacation, so Melania needs to be Mother more than Wife right now.
