(CBS NEWS) – President Trump has a busy schedule with world leaders as he arrives in Argentina for the G-20 summit. But one planned meeting will not happen after all.
Shortly after Air Force One left Washington for Argentina, President Trump canceled — via airborne tweets — a high-profile meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He did so “based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russia.”
Russia continues to hold three Ukrainian naval vessels and more than 20 sailors they seized last weekend in the Black Sea. But a short time earlier on the south lawn of the White House, the president had said the Putin meetings were still on.
“We haven’t terminated the meeting. I think it’s a very good time to have the meeting,” he said.
