Trump, Putin shake hands ahead of closely watched G20 meeting

Trump, Putin shake hands ahead of closely watched G20 meetingBy Roberta Rampton and Jeff Mason HAMBURG (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, a veteran businessman and a former spy, shook hands on Friday ahead of the most highly anticipated face-to-face meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit. Trump has said he wants to find ways to work with Putin, a goal made more difficult by sharp differences over Russia’s actions in Syria and Ukraine, and allegations Moscow meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In a video of the encounter, Trump was later shown patting Putin on the back.
