CNN Falsely Claims Merkel Chose G20 Location To Hurt Trump

More fake news. Follow the logic here. 

CNN’s international diplomatic editor Nic Robertson told viewers Wednesday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is holding the G20 summit in Hamburg instead of a more remote location to humiliate Trump. However, the G20 site was selected more than a year ago, when all bets had Hillary Clinton winning the presidential election.

Here’s the proof from the Associated Press:

BERLIN (AP) — The German government says it will host a summit of the Group of 20 major world economic powers in Hamburg on July 7 and 8 next year.

The government said Friday that the meeting will likely be held at the northern port city’s congress center. The venue contrasts with the remote hotel in the Bavarian Alps where Germany hosted last year’s Group of Seven summit, but the government says it “fulfills all the logistical and security demands.”
