Trump earlier had a working lunch with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the presidential palace Istana after their bilateral meeting during which the two leaders discussed everything from the summit preparations to the US' tariff threats.
In addition to the late arrival, the White House announced Thursday night that Trump will leave the G7 summit early, skipping sessions on climate and clean energy. " We asked him about that ", she told Anne Will, adding that his answers " did not sound convincing " to her. A senior government official meanwhile said May would warn that countermeasures from the European Union would be unavoidable unless tensions were eased quickly.
During the media interview, Mr Lee said that Singapore had committed a lot of resources to the summit's logistics and security because of the profile of the meeting and the nature of what is being discussed. However, others reported that the Air China Boeing 747 took off before the leader's jet did by an hour or two as a security measure to avoid making his mode of transportation known.
