Donald Trump will meet Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg this weekend and social media is swept up with feverish speculation about how it will unfold.

Some Twitter users worry the US President will be unable to keep state secrets.

Others are concerned Trump will finally say something rude about the man many suspect of having helped him to the presidency.

National security adviser HR McMaster said the US has no specific agenda for the meeting, which some wags think is a fairly accurate assessment of the Trump administration's approach to foreign policy.

Some feel leaving the US President alone in a room with Putin and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is a dangerous idea.

Many users argue that the representatives of the two countries won't be equally matched.

Regardless of what happens, the Russian President looms large over the G20 summit.
