Trump shook hands with Putin at their sideline meeting, praising their ‘very good relationship’ and telling him, ‘Don’t meddle in the election, please,’ as he beamed at the Russian leader.
After a packed day of meetings on Friday, his daughter Ivanka will deliver the keynote speech about women’s economic empowerment at a special event tomorrow.

Ivanka Trump landed in Osaka and as expected, the advisor to the President packed a few looks for the highly important rendezvous.
For this initial appearance, Ivanka selected this Fendi belted shirtdress that she teamed with sky-high white pumps.
Ivanka loves a shirt dress, and clearly this dignified and polished silhouette suits her! One to go for Alessandra Rich, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and even Zara, this Fendi blends into her wardrobe seamlessly.
This look has also been slightly modified from the way it was shown in the lookbook, primarily in the bodice, eliminating the puckered division between the bust and skirt. We love how Ivanka put this together!
Sadly, it’s now sold out, but shop a similar cut over at Farfetch or get the look for a lot less in our edit down below!
Ivanka was invited by host Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and will appear with Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, with whom she has worked closely on the issue.
President Trump is also expected to attend as Ivanka discusses her father’s administration, its initiative on Women’s Global Development and Prosperity and ambitions to empower women economically around the world.
Besides the president’s commitments in supporting his daughter, he faces one of the most anticipated meetings of the trip with Chinese President Xi Jinping to thrash out a truce in a long-running trade war.
Experts believe there is little chance of a full deal immediately, saying the best hope is for a truce that would avoid Washington imposing new tariffs and ramping up the conflict.
But even this is not guaranteed, with the Wall Street Journal reporting Thursday that Beijing will not agree to any deal unless Washington lifts its ban on Chinese telecoms firm Huawei.
In an apparent reference to this issue, Trump at the opening session said: ‘We must also ensure the resilience and security of our 5G networks.’
Before arriving, Trump said China wanted a ceasefire because its economy was ‘going down the tubes’, appearing to also threaten another $325 billion in levies in addition to the $200 billion Washington has already imposed.
China’s foreign ministry said today it hopes the United States will meet China halfway and ensure their meeting is a success, when asked about talks between the Chinese and U.S. presidents on the sidelines of the summit.

After Xi held a meeting with counterparts from Egypt, South Africa and Senegal, Dai Bing, an official from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said ‘all leaders stressed that… bullying practices are on the rise’.
Trade will be far from the only contentious issue on the table, with climate change emerging as another sticking point.
Host Japan is hoping to bridge the gaps between European leaders who want strong action and an American administration committed to withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement.
French President Emmanuel Macron has said he wants strong wording in support of action against climate change but Washington is unlikely to back any statement endorsing the Paris deal.
With Macron insisting the issue is a ‘red line’, Japanese officials concede agreement will be tough.
‘The work to consolidate various opinions is expected to be difficult,’ a Japanese official admitted to reporters Thursday.

A French source said Washington had succeeded in drawing some countries over to its side and appeared less isolated than before on environmental issues.
Looming over the talks will also be continuing tensions in the Middle East. Trump said before heading to Japan that any war with Iran ‘wouldn’t last long’.
However, he too seemed to mitigate this position at the G20, saying there was ‘no rush’ to solve the crisis that has sparked fears of a military conflict in the Gulf.
Earlier today, Putin boasted that liberalism in the West had ‘outlived its purpose’ and called the decision to allow millions of migrants into the EU a ‘cardinal mistake.’
The Moscow leader criticised progressive views on gay rights, immigration and multiculturalism – which he claimed were an attack on ‘traditional family values’.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Mr Putin said ‘the liberal idea’ was on its way out as the public turned its back on these issues. And he claimed German chancellor Angela Merkel made a ‘cardinal mistake’ in her 2017 decision to allow a million refugees into the country.
He said: ‘[Liberals] cannot simply dictate anything to anyone just like they have been attempting to do over the recent decades.
‘This liberal idea presupposes that nothing needs to be done. That migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants have to be protected.’
He added: ‘Every crime must have its punishment. The liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.’
