President Trump continued his one-on-one meetings at the G-20 summit in Germany on Saturday, this time with British Prime Minister Theresa May. The two had "tremendous talks" on trade, declared Trump, who also spoke of the "very special relationship" he has developed with May since becoming president. He promised that a trade deal between the two nations is coming "very quickly," though the New York Times notes that couldn't happen until after Britain leaves the European Union. As for rumors that his planned trip to London was on ice, Trump was clear: "I will be going to London," he said, adding that all the details will be worked out later.

Also on Saturday, the last day of the summit, Trump will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Indonesia President Joko Widodo, and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Trump also attended a finance event focused on female entrepreneurs, a project led by daughter Ivanka, reports the AP. "If she weren't my daughter, it would be so much easier for her," the president joked. Trump's biggest event of the summit came Friday, when he met face-to-face with Vladimir Putin.
