President Trump sat with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday for a photo opportunity before their highly anticipated meeting at the G20 Summit in Germany.

The world leaders appeared cordial with Trump doing most of the talking.

“We’ve had some very, very good talks. We’re gonna have a talk now and obviously that will continue,” Trump told reporters. “We look forward to a lot of very positive things happening.”

Trump and Putin were captured shaking hands earlier on Friday during a brief exchange when they arrived at the meeting. Before the encounter, Trump fired off several tweets touching on a broad range of topics.

Many are hoping Trump will bring up the investigation in Russia’s suspected election interference during the meeting with Putin, but he claims “everyone” is talking about Clinton’s former campaign chairmanJohn Podesta. Trump called Podesta “disgraceful” during the Twitter session.

Podesta, who does not work for the DNC, had several private emails land on WikiLeaks during the campaign. The president also wrote, “I will represent our country well and fight for its interests! Fake News Media will never cover me accurately but who cares!”

The president wrote that he has “much to discuss” with Putin. The meeting is among the key moments of Trump’s presidency so far.
