If the announcement of a meeting between the president Trump and the governor of the State of New York Andrew Cuomo has made salivate the representatives of the media, very little from their encounter up to now.
Contrary to his habit, Donald Trump had not invited the journalists and photographers. Those who were anticipating exchanges leathery, or demonstrations of force on the part of the two men must now rely on the brief comments issued at the end of the day or early evening.

This would not be the first time that you advance a step and then back two or three. But, hey, we should emphasize the positive character of the announcement and the good will of both parties.
