Melania Trump Blocked By G-20 Protesters From Leaving German Guest House

First Lady Melania Trump has been barred from leaving her temporary residence in Hamburg, Germany, due to G-20 protesters.

Trump is staying at a guest house that belongs to the Hamburg Senate while her husband President Donald Trump, attends the G-20 summit.

“We have no security clearance from the police to leave the guesthouse,” Trump’s spokeswoman for the German press agency told Focus, a German news agency.

No other immediate information was available.

On Thursday, nearly 100,000 anti-capitalist protesters demonstrated in the German city ahead of the G-20 conference.

German police said 29 protesters were detained and 111 police officers were wounded, including three officers who were hospitalized.

German authorities boosted their police presence ahead of the conference in preparation for the protests but called in more aid late Thursday after protests started to escalate.

The Group of 20 gathering of the world’s leading rich and developing nations is the first since Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

On Friday, President Trump is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin while on Thursday he met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and had dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
