Key points:

* Trump made no apparent effort to unify leaders around any particular issue, even though North Korea provided an obvious opportunity to do this

* Trump's scripted speeches on the West were interesting, but nobody bought it, because of the amount of times he has gone off-script to undermine those values (free media, rejecting an increasingly authoritarian Poland, independent judiciary)

* Trump didn't seem to have any kind of working relationship with anyone present, and in fact the G-20 was practically the G-19 by event's end --- leaders generally strove to ignore him

* China and Russia are eagerly stepping in to provide guidance while an unprepared, disinterested president phones it in and has embarrassing one-on-meetings with the likes of Putin but not his allies
