    Hey, Nevertrumpers (r) ™ and ‘principled CONservatives’….THIS is what winning looks like:

     

    Hamburg (AFP) – US President Donald Trump won key concessions on climate and trade Saturday from world leaders at the most fractious G20 summit to date, in exchange for preserving the unity of the club of major industrialised and emerging economies.

    In a final statement agreed by all 20 economies, 19 members including Russia, China and the European Union acknowledged Trump’s decision to go his own way on taking the US out of the 2015 Paris climate accord.

    But they also accommodated Washington’s wish to “work closely with other countries to help them access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently”.

    While renewing a key anti-protectionist pledge, the communique for the first time underlined the right of countries to protect their markets with “legitimate trade defence instruments”.

    Such wording gives room for Trump to push on with his “America First” policy.

    Carried on a wave of public fury over deindustrialisation in vast areas of the United States, Trump had promised to “Buy American” and “Hire American”.

    But that stance had set him against many of America’s allies, who warned Trump against an isolationist path.

    Nevertheless, the wording of the final agreement marked the group of top economies’ decision to finally close ranks despite bitter differences.

    Any questions?
