Report: Melania Trump and Putin discussed gender equality at G-20 banquet

First lady Melania Trump sat with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a G-20 banquet last weekend, and details of their conversation have now been made public.

Putin's press secretary Dimitry Peskov reportedly spoke on the pair's conversation during a Russian television interview, saying Putin "remained satisfied" with the exchange, that included a dialogue around the G-20 summit's agenda.

"I think there was certain sympathy," Peskov said. He added that the Slovenian native model and Russian foreign leader discussed working sessions on gender equality and the economic role of women.
