WH Lied About Why Trump Skipped Climate Meeting

Mediaite reports:

CNN accused President Donald Trump of lying on Monday after reviewing photos from the G7 summit and determining that the White House ran cover for him not attending a climate change meeting.

CNN’s Daniel Dale noted that the meeting was on Trump’s schedule, and said the White House claimed that Trump didn’t attend the meeting because he had to attend other engagements with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

There’s just a slight problem: photos show that Merkel and Modi both attended the climate session. Trump did not.
