No further details were given about their meeting.

The G20, or Group of 20, summit is a forum for governments and central banks from 20 major economies.

Trump and Putin had their first face-to-face meeting at the G20 in Germany in July 2017. They ended up having a two-hour meeting.

The news comes amid tensions with China, as the trade war has been escalating with no end in sight.

Trump tweeted on Monday, “I say openly to President Xi & all of my many friends in China that China will be hurt very badly if you don’t make a deal because companies will be forced to leave China for other countries. Too expensive to buy in China. You had a great deal, almost completed, & you backed out!”

He later tweeted, “There is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs, which take effect on China today. This has been proven recently when only 4 points were paid by the U.S., 21 points by China because China subsidizes product to such a large degree. Also, the Tariffs can be…”

“…completely avoided if you buy from a non-Tariffed Country, or you buy the product inside the USA (the best idea),” he continued. “That’s Zero Tariffs. Many Tariffed companies will be leaving China for Vietnam and other such countries in Asia. That’s why China wants to make a deal so badly!…”

“..There will be nobody left in China to do business with,” he added. “Very bad for China, very good for USA! But China has taken so advantage of the U.S. for so many years, that they are way ahead (Our Presidents did not do the job). Therefore, China should not retaliate-will only get worse!”

The U.S. special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election has recently concluded, as well; Trump has said the nearly two-year-long investigation was a hoax and that there was no collusion with Russia.
