Buenos Aires (CNN)President Donald Trump was only a half-hour into his nine-hour flight to the G20 summit here in the Argentine capital when he decided to pull the plug on the most hotly anticipated moment of his trip: a lengthy face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
But while Trump’s abrupt decision quashed concerns that the President would repeat his cozy performance alongside Putin during their last meeting in Helsinki, Finland, new allegations by the President’s
former longtime attorney Michael Cohen
revived questions about Trump’s financial ties to Russia as he arrived for the international summit.
Trump’s planned meetings with a half-dozen other world leaders — combined with the possibility of diplomatic snafus — offer little promise of clearing the smoke of suspicion that is once again following him abroad.
