CNN's Don Lemon has examined why President Donald Trump seemed unwilling to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin or Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to their faces at the G20 summit in Argentina on Friday.

The "CNN Tonight" host on Friday aired footage of Putin and MBS embracing each other at the event. And "why not?" asked Lemon. "The President of the United States, the leader of the free world, the only man who could stand in their way is weak, weak, weak."

Lemon said Trump was "afraid to cross two brutal and repressive leaders who oppose everything this country stands for." Trump had "the perfect opportunity to call them both to account at the G20 face to face," Lemon noted, but "he seems to be doing everything he can to avoid that."

"The president seems to care more about covering his tracks with the Mueller investigation closing in than standing up for American values," he added. "Whatever happened to America first?"

A coalition of 16 U.S. states led by California sued President Donald Trump and top members of his administration on Monday to block his decision to declare a national emergency to obtain funds for building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California came after Trump invoked emergency powers on Friday to help build the wall that was his signature 2016 campaign promise. Trump's order would allow him to spend on the wall money that Congress appropriated for other purposes.
