G20 finance ministers drop anti-protectionist pledge

The TL;DR: Trump isn’t cool with free trade and he doesn’t believe in climate change, and US pressure caused the G20 to drop their long standing pro-free trade and pro-environment pledges.

You might be asking what is G20? Basically it’s a group of wealthy nations that meet to discuss economic policy every year. They don’t really make policies laws or treaties, but since the top financial ministers of each country are involved, laws, policies and treaties are strongly influenced by the meeting.
