'Was here yesterday also (early), but some of the Fake News Media failed to report it accurately - as usual. During his 2016 campaign for the White House, Trump regularly attacked his predecessor, Barack Obama, for repeatedly hitting ties, insisting he would have little time to play golf as president because he worked so hard. He resented reports that he had blown up part of the G20 summit to play golf.

'Just arrived at Virtual G20, ' Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

World leaders attended the Virtual G20 summit this weekend.

He avoided a one-party program entitled "Epidemic Preparedness and Response", in which speakers included German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.

And his speech wasn't released by the White House, despite CNN and other outlets saying they asked.

Before he left the White House to go to the golf course, Trump implied to leaders that he will be working with them in the future, a reference to the losing fight he has put up against the results of the presidential election.

According to audio obtained by the Observer, Trump said: "It's been a great honour to work with you, and I look forward to working with you again for a long time".

He also boasted about Operation Warp Speed, the US government's push for a coronavirus vaccine, that only funded one of two potentially successful candidates. Warp Speed provided funding to develop a vaccine that Moderna has produced, but not Pfizer, which was developed without the help of the USA government.

It says Trump highlighted how the United States "marshaled every resource at its disposal" to respond to the crisis, as well as the unprecedented economic recovery of the country on a foundation of tax and regulatory cuts.

He spoke in support of the US Alliance for Democracy, but said that maintaining some independence was important for the United States.

The United States, with more than 11.9 million cases and 255,000 deaths, makes up the largest share of global coronavirus cases.

Since Joe Biden was declared the victor of the November 7 election, leaders around the world have congratulated Biden, including Midron; Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson; Canadian President Justin Trudeau acknowledged his victory despite Trump's refusal. By that time, Trump had left for his golf course in Virginia and no USA official had spoken out on the issue.
