Global elites expected to discuss President Trump during secret Bilderberg meeting in VA

Many of the world's top political leaders, bankers and corporate executives have gathered in Virginia for a highly secretive conference called Bilderberg, reports the BBC.

According to a press release issued by the group, the meeting, scheduled from June 1-4 in Chantilly, Virginia, will cover a list of 13 topics including one titled, "The Trump Administration: A progress report."

The Guardian is speculating that "the US president's extraordinary chiding of [NATO] leaders in Brussels is sure to be chewed over at Bilderberg, which takes its name from the hotel in the Netherlands where its conference first met in 1954."
