This week, President Donald Trump is in Germany for his first G20 summit. He met with world leaders to discuss world crises such as climate change, trade, immigration and relationships with Russia and North Korea.

Earlier on Radio Times, host Marty Moss-Coane was joined with Clint Watts, Robert A. Fox fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and Yuval Weber, Center Associate at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University to talk about the trip’s expectations and possible agreements between the leading nations.

In this clip, Watts explained why Trump won’t discuss Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Putin doesn’t just have a hacking system, he has an influence system in place which he could turn on President Trump whenever he wanted,” Watts said.
