Leaders of the Group of 20 (G-20) nations on Saturday signed off on a final statement pledging to fix the world trading system, with all but President Trump also expressing support for the Paris climate agreement.

The statement finalized after the two-day summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, calls for reforming the World Trade Organization but does not mention protectionism because the U.S. resisted those discussions, according to The Associated Press.
===========================================
Trump is a hypocrite when it comes to climate change.

Speaking of Trump. “As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” You'd have thought those words were specifically written for our contemporary events. Not so. "The more things change, the more they remain the same." The first quote was ""H.L. Mencken (1880-1956):"

Outstanding. The two issues shouldn't be mixed.
