  • Welcome back to China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • Back to the G20.

  • As we draw the curtains on the meeting

  • between the world's 20 largest economies,

  • and the streets are swept clean

  • from the several days of riots,

  • these 20 Gs head home.

  • That picture just proves that Angela Merkel

  • is still the OG.

  • But after it's all over,

  • we're left with the question

  • what the heck just happened?!

  • The G20 had some big challenges:

  • Meaningful reforms on climate change,

  • a coordinated response to the Syrian crisis,

  • comprehensive solutions for refugees,

  • immigration, and terrorism.

  • But, when 20 world leaders with individual agendas

  • all got in the same room, they...

  • let's just say they made incremental progress at best.

  • Outside the meetings, there were protests.

  • Some of them got a little crazy.

  • And most threatening of all...

  • Clowns.

  • But worse than the protests were the media,

  • which treated us to non-stop G20

  • body language analysis.

  • Because who wouldn't want to spend days

  • carefully scrutinizing these bodies

  • of old politicians in suits?

  • What's that, Shelley?

  • There's G20 fanfiction?!

  • Wait, no, don't tell me.

  • Back to non-traumatizing physical contact

  • between world leaders,

  • there's the all-important handshake.

  • Clearly, Trump won the handshake with Putin.

  • I mean, clearly,

  • Putin won the handshake with Trump.

  • Wait, that's a still unclear.

  • But remember in January

  • when the world first learned of

  • theTrump handshake?

  • That awkward handshake

  • where he pulls the guy towards him?

  • Well, let's just say China

  • has been learning from the West.

  • Speaking of China,

  • China.

  • China won big at the G20.

  • There was no conflict over the South China Sea,

  • and no criticism of China's human rights abuses.

  • I think this clip illustrates the level of tension.

  • The wish was expressed that this time

  • I would bring with me two panda bears.

  • I gave a positive answer.”

  • So Xi Jinping brought pandas to Germany

  • that China will loan to the Berlin zoo

  • for a million dollars a year

  • for the next fifteen years,

  • and then China will demand the pandas

  • and all their offspring back.

  • Pandas, yayyy!

  • But anyway,

  • on to less black-and-white issues.

  • As I mentioned earlier,

  • during the G20,

  • the US and China did meet.

  • And it looked like everyone had so much fun.

  • They discussed two main issues.

  • One:

  • Trump wants to China to stop its unfair trade practices

  • with the US.

  • We know that because Twitter.

  • And two:

  • Trump wants China to stop trading at all

  • with its nuclear-armed neighbor.

  • Oh sorry,

  • I meant the one with the dangerous leader.

  • The fat one.

  • Yeah.

  • Again, because Twitter.

  • But despite Trump's increasing frustration

  • that Chinese leaders haven't done more

  • to help with North Korea,

  • Trump remained cordial at the meeting,

  • telling Xi that he appreciated what he had done

  • relative the very substantial problem

  • that we all face in North Korea.”

  • So against all odds,

  • could their friendship live on?

  • I mean, in April they bonded over dessert.

  • And we had the most beautiful piece

  • of chocolate cake you've ever seen.”

  • Most beautiful piece of cake?

  • I'd beg to differ.

  • But anyway,

  • what if the US-China cake-based friendship

  • starts to crumble?

  • Well, that's why Trump may be

  • trying to improve ties with Russia.

  • Uh, no, I'm not talking about Trump Jr.

  • I mean President Trump is trying to improve

  • bilateral ties with President Putin.

  • This marks a departure from previous US policy.

  • Wait, “We can do stuff to you”?

  • Was Obama...flirting?

  • What's that Shelley?

  • No, I haven't been reading more fanfiction.

  • Who would write fanfiction about politicians anyway?

  • Wait, no, don't tell me.

  • What does this have to do with China, you ask?

  • Well, over the past several years,

  • Russia and China have supported each other

  • economically and politically.

  • Both hold permanent member seats

  • on the UN Security council.

  • They've used that platform to block

  • democratic nations from certain objectives.

  • For example,

  • putting sanctions on Syria.

  • And most recently,

  • efforts to target human traffickers.

  • If Trump is indeed planning

  • to put more pressure on China

  • then a friendly, or at least neutral, Russia

  • could be to America's advantage.

  • When President Richard Nixon visited China

  • in 1972 to establish ties,

  • his goal was to give the US leverage over Russia

  • then part of the Soviet Union.

  • It worked.

  • It would be somewhat ironic if President Donald Trump's

  • warming relationship with Russia

  • is now aimed at giving the US leverage over China.

  • You know it could be working

  • when Chinese state-run media say,

  • Fine.

  • I don't care.”

  • Of course, that doesn't guarantee that Russia

  • wouldn't try to be buddy-buddy

  • with both China and the US.

  • After all,

  • the Chinese regime is doing its best

  • to promote a positive image of Putin

  • on social media.

  • But take it from me,

  • it never works when you try

  • to have two best friends.

  • To be clear,

  • I'm not saying that the US

  • should definitely cozy up to Russia.

  • For one,

  • Russia is an authoritarian state

  • that has done a lot questionable things.

  • Not that that's stopped the US

  • from working with other authoritarian countries.

  • And two,

  • the Trump Administration's growing Russia problems

  • might make it difficult for them

  • to have a strong relationship.

  • But the Trump administration may still try.

  • Because you know what they say,

  • the frenemy of my frenemy

  • is my...fren-en-enemy?

  • So we'll be keeping an eye

  • on how the world's superpowers are shifting

  • the balance after the G20.

  • At least in the fanfiction.

  • Speaking of frenenenemies,

  • China and Vietnam.

  • We'll have more after the break.

  • Wait for it...

  • It happened! Oh my gosh, it actually happened!

  • Even they look surprised!

  • As for Canada's Justin Trudeau, well...

  • sometimes it's best not to read too much into body language.

  • There's probably fanfiction about this, isn't there?

  • Anyway, if you want to see the full half-hour episode right now, go to ChinaUncensored.tv!

Welcome back to China Uncensored.
