  • President Donald Trump was recorded saying “get me out
    of here” as he strode offstage at the G20 Summit in Buenos
    Aires, Argentina.
  • Trump was onstage for a group photo before he shook hands

    stage.
  • Trump eventually returned to take a group photo to mark the

as he strode offstage during a photo op at the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires,
Argentina.

Trump was onstage for a group photo Saturday before he shook
hands with Argentinian President Mauricio Macri and walked off
the stage, closely followed by an aide. 

A microphone then recorded the president, who was then
off-camera, telling an aide “get me out of here.”

Trump eventually returned to take a group photo, marking the end
of the two-day gathering of international leaders.

Trump was slated to conduct critical talks at the closely watched
summit, including a formal dinner with Chinese President Xi
Jinping during which he would address the burgeoning trade war between
the two countries. In remarks ahead of their Saturday night
dinner, the leaders both expressed their friendly relationship

Other issues, including climate change, were pushed aside by
Trump, as he was the only leader present who did not sign a
statement reaffirming leaders’ commitment to addressing
climate change through guidelines of the Paris
agreement.

after he canceled a Saturday afternoon
press conference
as a sign of respect in the hours following
former George H.W. Bush’s passing.
