Trump Putin Meeting on Hold-Battle at the G20 Summit in Hamburg
The surrounding area of the G20 summit in Hamburg has become a battlefield. It is being demonstrated throughout the city, and there are hard confrontations with the police. Here are some dozens of cars burned in one neighborhood. In the margins of the G20 in Hamburg, hundreds of breakers burn cars and break windows.
“Welcome to hell”: the anti-G20 demonstrators set the tone. Clashes between police officers and some protesters hostile to the summit disrupted the program of the world’s most powerful leaders on 7 July, just hours from the first face-to-face meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, as you can see in The video at the head of the article.
Melania Trump stuck in his residence, delegations late due to demonstrations, tires of the cars of the Canadian delegation punctured … protesters beat the pavement continuously since Thursday evening, multiplying the incidents and forcing the police to ask for reinforcement.

“Hamburg police could not give us permission to go out” from the guest house of the local government of Hamburg, a splendid waterfront villa, said spokeswoman for the wife of the president American, Stephanie Grisham.
In the streets of this northern German port city, police cars were burned, about 160 police officers slightly injured, and at least 45 people arrested, police said. No record of the wounded among the demonstrators was available.
These clashes echo the electric atmosphere inside the ultra-secure enclosure where the most powerful heads of state and government gathered in the world until Saturday. With the highlight the first face to face between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, scheduled at 15:45.
