I don’t often get taken totally by surprise in routine geo-political
events like the major meetings, but I have to admit that I was surprised
over this year’s G20. It seems that our
geo-political neophyte Donald Trump – being able to dominate the
European and World leaders with his manipulation of the press via his
constant flow of provocative comments – convinced his past victims that
they had to get in the game quickly, or they would look like wimps in
front of their own constituents.
