NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell adopted President Trump’s trademark “Sad!” exclamation as a hashtag Thursday when she announced that he would be leaving the G7 summit in Quebec early.
White House announces @realDonaldTrump will leave G7 4 hours earlier than scheduled, before the end of the meeting – reflection of U.S. desire to spend minimum amount of time at hostile meeting with America's (formerly) friendliest allies #sad

Even though the meeting hadn’t happened yet, Mitchell explained that it was Trump’s desire to spend as little time with America’s (formerly) friendliest allies that accounted for his change of schedule.
On Saturday, though, Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade proposed another reason why Trump might have ducked out early:
Or he has to get to Singapore for an unprecedented summit w/ an emerging nuclear power who is a founding member of the axis of evil https://t.co/R1vd1Kx2eK

It is a long flight:
After 8 hour leg from Quebec, Air Force One refueling on Greek Island of Crete en route to Singapore for summit with Kim Jong-un. Among US officials aboard with Pres Trump is @SecPompeo, who has met twice with Kim.

So, just maybe, Trump wasn’t preemptively scheduling an escape hatch from a sure-to-be-hostile meeting?

@mitchellreports gets more clueless by the day. Climate change with G7 or historic summit for potential denuclearization of North Korea? I think Americans support @POTUS priorities far more than Andrea Mitchell’s. https://t.co/GLOFyMqLaL

Do you think that's why he was late to everything too? https://t.co/yoNnoYKGld

Hey, we’d show up late for this too:
Also: Trump was late for the first morning meeting. Apparently not much interested in Trudeau’s agenda on gender equality and and "further intersectionality” #G7
