German Chancellor Angela Merkel received praise Saturday from President Donald Trump for “beautifully” carrying out the G20 Summit “despite the anarchists.”
Anti-G20 activists rioted during the summit, which was held in Hamburg, and protestors were extremely aggressive according to police. Rioters attacked police officers with iron rods and Molotov cocktails while about 500 people looted a supermarket in the neighborhood.
More than 200 officers have been injured since the start of the protests Thursday night and 114 people have been arrested. First Lady Melania Trump was unable to attend the G-20 spouse events because Hamburg police couldn’t provide clearance for her to leave her hotel.
