‘Subdued’ Trump had to ‘make concessions to reality’ and become a ‘non-factor’ at G20 summit: Washington Post report

President Donald Trump at the G20 summit in Argentina.

A “subdued” President Donald Trump left the G20 summit in Argentina Saturday after having laid low, reports the Washington Post.

“President Trump managed to spend two days in the company of world leaders he has long antagonized without any visible eruptions,” the report reads.

Examples include his relatively warm embrace of nemesis German Chancellor Angela Merkel and his avoidance of any conflict with the leaders of France and Canada.

“A president who prides himself on being the ultimate disrupter on the global stage instead played the part of reluctant diplomat here in Argentina, at the risk of making himself something of a non-factor,” the report read.

Analysts said it was imperative that the wounded president with historically low approval rating who just lost control of Congress had to “make concessions to reality.”

“The president has been uncharacteristically but appropriately subdued,” said James Dobbins, a former assistant secretary of state and senior fellow at the Rand Corporation. “Nice photo op with his NAFTA 2 partners, warm and respectful farewell to the first President Bush, cold shoulder to the two rogue attendees, Putin and MBS, and positive build up to his meeting with Xi. So far he has navigated a difficult and unfortunately timed gathering without mishap.”

In a series of damning conversations in which she also used profanity to complain about the children her husband separated from their families, the First Lady had said, “who gives a f**k about Christmas stuff and decoration?

Donald Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ in late night conspiracy-filled rant

Published

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.

This Monday was a reassuring day for democracy, but a devastating blow for supporters of President Donald Trump still holding out hope that he'll stay in office past January 2021.

And the General Services Administrator Emily Murphy finally provided Biden's team with the resources to fund his transition, a move even approved of by Trump himself, though he vowed to keep fighting:
