First Lady Melania Trump is reportedly trapped inside her Hamburg hotel room after leftist anti-capitalist protesters surrounded the building.

According to The Independent, “the First Lady was due to be involved in an event for the spouses of leaders taking part in the G20 summit, organized by Angela Merkel’s husband.”

The outlet, however, quotes a spokesperson for the U.S. as stating that they are unable to get Melania security clearance to leave the building.

Melania has tweeted her sympathies for those injured in the violent Hamburg protests.

The Australian Prime Minister also tweeted about being on lockdown with Indonesian President Joko Widodo as a result of the protests.

President Trump, according to The Independent, made it to the G20 summit led by a heavy police escort travelling at high speed through Hamburg.

Global News reports that 20,000 police officers are on hand as the violence in Hamburg continues.

The Guardian, meanwhile, reports that masked protesters wearing all-black set fire to at least 20 cars on Friday morning.

This afternoon, the outlet states, police announced that 160 officers have been injured in the violence while 70 protesters have been arrested.

According to The Telegraph, the anti-capitalist protesters are attempting to “disrupt the G20 summit,” which features heads of state from 20 world-leading nations.

The BBC, meanwhile, reports that the leftist rioters are upset by “the very idea that 19 world leaders, plus the two top officials of the European Union, [are] doing deals behind closed doors.”

“We know that the people who cause the misery that we have all over the world today – refugees, wars, and so on – they are sitting right now in the G20 and are having a chat,” the outlet quotes one environmental protester as telling Reuters.

Despite the chaos, President Donald Trump was reportedly able to accomplish quite a bit at the G20 today.

As reported previously, during his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump was able to – as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson put it – “secure a commitment that the Russian government has no intention” of meddling in future U.S. elections.

Trump and Putin reportedly also reached an agreement to reduce the violence in Syria.

    Why is violence tolerated like this in Euroland? Do they have any adults over there?

    • Jenda

      Not in government positions except for Poland and Hungary.

      • RGZ

        And the Czech Republic.

        • Jenda

          Erm. It would be nice if you were right. We’ve got some crybabies and spoiled brats in our government. And an oligarch.

    • Dom Pizzarro

      Western Europeans are almost deathly afraid of being considered right-wing. Yeah, you read correctly, right-wing, not far right or right-wing radicals, no, simply being right-wing. That’s what 60 years of indoctrination do to a population. And unless their personal livelihood is threatened, they won’t move.

      • Nannette McGowan

        The evidence being that having any views that oppose left-wing propaganda is now deemed a “hate crime” to intimidate those who have differing views from openly speaking out against the left-wing. The current open door policy allowing massive Islamic migration is threatening their economy and bankrupting their social programs as well as endangering their population. The left-wing’s solution is to sweep that under the rug and try to prevent that truth from being allowed not only by the media but to purge it from social media, too.

  • Sanctum Domini

    One can only hope that these world leaders take note of Antifa’s violent actions and start dealing with them like the terror organization they are.

    • RGZ

      Are you kidding? They’ll probably applaud them for fighting the good fight.

  • Robert Eder

    Germany cant provide simple protection to US PRESIDENT’S wife, our beloved First Lady. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT SHIT. It’s per Merkel’s command, Germany REFUSED TO PROTECT our First Lady. Shame on Fucking Germany. They are the TRUE NAZI SCHWEINE. Boycott GERMANY!!!!

    • Paul B

      Here’s what blows my mind: Germany’s leader & Russia’s leader both dislike Poland.
      Merkel hates anti-EU sentiment & Putin hates NATO at his doorstep.

      The European Union experiment is LITERALLY turning back the clock on geopolitics to the 30’s.
      Good fucking job!

      • Dom Pizzarro

        Merkel doesn’t hate anything. At best she’s annoyed. She only cares about power.

    • Right Uppercut

      Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if Germany was BEHIND the riots in the first place.

      • Robert Eder

        That’s a real good question. I’m certain it most certainly PLEASED Merkel (my opinion). I’m not a conspiracy guy, so without proof, we have to assume she is just an innocent Angel(a).

  • Pröksié SteelyDanzig Shürvaar

    How’s your Schengen Area doin’ now, Angela? You jerk. You have every asshole anarchist on the continent freely roaming across borders to come wreck your country. How is that progress?

    • Jenda

      That doesn’t make a big difference. Most of the scum is local. The only difference between Antifa and SA are their iPhones.

  • DarkOne

    They should’ve held the G20 in Poland. Those fukers know how to shut down a snowflake riot.

    • Paul B

      I wouldn’t scoff at the notion of it being held in Russia.
      Why settle for the Lesser Evil? 😀

  • Rob Patriot

    At what point, given 160 police injured, do you simply start using live ammunition? If you’re hosting a summit with the top political leaders of the world, and you can’t guarantee their safety, water cannons are off the table.

    • Chazz11bravo

      The cops don’t appear to have any protection such as riot shields or clubs. At least supply and authorize the use of rubber ammunition. A few truck load of bulls like Barcelona maybe? I’d rent that video. But seriously they don’t even appear to trained well enough to handle the situation at hand.

      I feel any protester striking an officer with any type of bludgeon should be immediately subdued with greater or even lethal force. The cops are using spitwads in a rock fight over there.

    • Pat Patrix

      Because then we’d have Venezuela. I agree that more should be done but we still have to set the example that we don’t murder people in the streets over politics.

      There should be a lot more beatings though. I’d like to see that.

      • Right Uppercut

        That’s not what it would be. It would be using deadly force in response to uncontrollably violent crowds involved in rioting.

        • Pat Patrix

          Doesn’t matter, that’s how it would be perceived by the broader world. Governments murdering people in the streets is what dictatorships do, people like yourself don’t seem to understand that.

          Also I imagine you’re a supporter of the second amendment yes? Isn’t the need for the 2nd amendment to prevent exactly what you’re suggesting? Think about it.

          • Right Uppercut

            And what if the rioters are the ones who want to oppress people? Because the Second Amendment is not meant to protect as government per se. It’s meant to protect against oppression. So I ask again, if it’s the rioters that are the ones interested in oppression, is it still wrong for the government to use deadly force to quell their violence? For that matter, since the Second Amendment is meant to protect against oppression, is it OK for private citizens to use deadly force against the rioter? In both cases, my answer is yes.

            Finally, perceptions don’t matter. Only truth matters. And if the truth is that the government is justified in using deadly force, then I don’t give a tiny shit what the perceptions of the world at large are.

          • Pat Patrix

            You’re seriously lacking in common sense and logic if you think governments murdering people in the streets is a solution to anything. The rioters need to be stopped for sure, but you’re only going to escalate tensions and riots by resorting to deadly force. It’s just not realistic for a democratic society, that’s what dictatorships do. What you’re advocating is tyranny, not law and order.

            And perceptions are everything. It’s perception that drives causes.

          • Right Uppercut

            Now hold on a second, I’m not suggesting break out the live ammunition as soon as angry sounding groups gather together. I’m not even suggesting that the government should start shooting when people are breaking windows and looting (although I absolutely DO think that private property owners should use deadly force to protect their livelihoods and property). But what about when the rioters aren’t satisfied with looting stores and throwing bricks through windows? At some point, deadly force DOES need to come into play. Otherwise you invite anarchy. Again, we’re not talking about people who have been oppressed and had their rights violated. We’re talking about people who want to take the rights of others AWAY. They’re the bad guys in this scenario.

            Perception will NEVER matter more than truth. Because perceptions are fluid, changeable. Truth is constant. Perception is everything only to those who are short-sighted.

          • Pat Patrix

            It’s perception that’s encouraging these people to go out and riot, not truth. Perception is easy for the fact that it is fluid, that’s what gives it mass appeal, that’s what allows people to justify things like mass riots to begin with. They’re not interested in truths, to them their perception IS truth. People in general aren’t all that intelligent, studies show that 40% of people in society have strong authoritarian leanings, that means almost half of society is merely waiting to be told what to believe.

            And I wish I had somewhere to go with this but the truth is there is no real answer. With such an enormous global population where the majority are woefully uneducated and frankly just plain out low IQ there is no winning strategy anymore. The only way to turn the course is to root out the globalist elites wielding the power, ultimately they’re the ones causing all of this, they’re the ones pointing these idiots in this direction. You’re talking about a mass populace who doesn’t care about truth to begin with, the last thing they want to do is think for themselves, their lives are based entirely on perception. That’s the problem. If the world ran on truths there’d be a lot less issues to deal with.

            As to resorting to deadly force, I have no real moral qualms with individuals protecting themselves or their property. Just that once a government takes the step towards it is when democracies become tyrannies.

          • Right Uppercut

            You’re right to a point. Perception is what allows people to justify literally any actions, and that makes it tremendously powerful. And it’s even true that a majority of people rely on perception rather than on truth. But ultimately, truth still matters more. Because perceptions can’t protect you from danger. Perception can’t defend your nation. Perception can’t put food on the table. Sooner or later, truth will always pull back the veil on perception. The only question is whether it will happen before it’s too late. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. But eventually illusions are lifted and truth comes to light.

            “And what if the rioters are the ones who want to oppress people?”

            The problem is that they don’t see it that way. Who is to say that you are right and they are wrong? Armed police?

          • Right Uppercut

            Isn’t it self-evident in their words and actions? I mean, they’re not only attacking the police and government representatives. They’re also attacking people that think differently from them. And they use their words to threaten physical harm and even death to those that disagree with them. How many examples do we have to see on Twitter and in the videos recorded on the streets? Antifa has clearly proven, through word and deed, that they are dangerous, subversive, and aspire to oppress those who hold opinions they do not approve of.

    They probably did her a favour. The less of Germany one has to see the better.

  • Lorri Anne

    This is why you uphold the rule of law EQUALLY and protect free speech for ALL! We have an epidemic of violent snowflakes in the West because they aren’t used to being exposed to opposing views thanks in large part to the schools and their violent outburst being rewarded! These brats need to be shipped off to Venezuela since they are so bent on socialism!

    Time to start shooting these ‘protesters’

    • Robert Eder

      No violence, doesn’t solve anything. Merkel was 100% neglectful in providing security (I believe strongly INTENTIONALLY). Let’s keep up our chants (peaceful) against Merkel the the dumb Germans. US Businesses, if you can do without Germany DO WITHOUT GERMANY. Economics always hurts.

      • It would rapidly reduce the number of protesters.

  • cristina willigs

    at least those brainwashed cunts are killing each other while rioting

  • Paul B

    What a shitshow.

  • Candy Parkin-smith

    Future meetings should say they are in one place but held in another. Why tell people where it takes place? It always ends in violence…

    Despite the Chaos? Trump THRIVES on chaos like Lance Armstrong thrived on steroids. It’s a bio-chemical. (And not necessarily a bad thing, either.)

  • rhadagastt

    Why do I get the feeling that the Leftist German government is more concerned about a rioter getting hurt than one of its own police officers?

    • Nannette McGowan

      All of it began the first time some of you who know better and are old enough to know better let young people think they have the right to choose the laws they would obey as long as they were doing it in the name of social protest.
      – Governor Ronald Reagan

      The liberals believe that protesters have SPECIAL rights to break laws, destroy property and assault others just because they’re called “protesters.” Forgotten is the fact that PEACEFUL protests are allowed and the PEACEFUL protests can accomplish much more than violent protests. Violent protests in Libya, Syria and Ukraine resulted in civil wars and deaths.
