President Donald Trump attended his final G20 summit on Saturday but he didn’t seem very invested in the gathering that is being held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump was among the world leaders present at the opening session Saturday morning, appearing live from the White House situation room. But whether he was actually paying attention to what was going on seems, at the very least, debatable. A mere 13 minutes into the official start time of the event, Trump was already sending tweets about the presidential election. And two hours later he had already left the White House to go to his golf club in Virginia.
