Trump skips virtual G20 meeting on ‘pandemic preparedness’ to play golf

President Trump skipped a special side-conference about the COVID-19 pandemic at the virtual G20 summit to play golf in Washington D.C. amid his refusal to concede in the U.S. presidential election to Joe Biden.

Speculations regarding the President’s attendance at the international event flew all week, but Trump on Saturday appeared via video-conference to the 15th annual G20 summit hosted by Saudi Arabia.

However, Trump was spotted hitting the green at the Trump National Golf Club Washington D.C. in Sterling, Virginia, some 30 miles from the White House soon after.

It’s the 298th golf trip Trump has made during his four years of the presidency.
