Trump–Putin Meeting – level 2

04-07-2019 07:00

Last Friday, Putin and Trump met at the G-20 summit in Japan. A reporter asked Trump if he was going to warn Putin not to meddle in the 2020 election.

Trump said, ‘Yes, of course I will’. He turned to Putin and jokingly said, ‘Don’t meddle in the election, please’. It is not exactly known what the two presidents later discussed. People say that they talked about Iran, Venezuela and trade between the USA and Russia.

Difficult words: summit (an official meeting), meddle (do something to change a situation), election (when people vote – choose their president).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
