CHINA/G20/JAPAN/TRADE WAR/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Trade wars — and the prospect of actual war — will dominate President Donald Trump’s agenda as he touches down here in Osaka, Japan, Thursday [6-27-19] for a highly consequential meeting of world leaders. It’s a sign of Trump’s continued capacity to mold the world agenda that this year’s G20 summit represents a confluence of global crises that are all, to some measure, manufactured by him. Markets are poised to react to the outcome of Trump’s long-awaited trade talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping. A tense situation in the Middle East grows ever more so as Trump plans to huddle with peers from Russia, Saudi Arabia and Germany. And stalled diplomacy with North Korea will be tested as South Korean officials say they are preparing for the President to visit the Demilitarized Zone. All are matters unlikely to be brought to easy resolution when Trump meets with his fellow global leaders in Japan. Air Force One touched down at the Osaka International Airport around 5:40 a.m. ET (6:40 p.m. local) after a roughly 15-hour journey from Washington.”
