  • President Donald Trump said he would have a “very busy”
    and “very productive” two days at the G20 summit in Argentina
    this weekend.
  • His tweet comes as The Associated Press reported that
    he deliberately cut short his travel abroad because he liked to
    stay at home.
  • Others leaders arrived earlier and will likely stay for
    longer.

President Donald Trump said he would have a “very productive” 48
hours at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires this weekend after a

report
said he deliberately cut short his time abroad because
he likes to stay home in his own bed.

Trump arrived in Argentina on Thursday night and tweeted
that he had “a very busy two days planned.”

He added that he “will be very productive!”

The tweet followed an
Associated Press (AP) report
that Trump packed in eight
high-level meetings with world leaders during his 48 hours at the
G20 summit this weekend.

Trump enjoys following his routine and sleeping in his own bed,
the news agency reported.
