Washington[edit]

Is this supposed to be washington state? --DannyS712 (talk) 21:47, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Aargh. It wasn't meant to be there at all, as I'd meant to delete it during review. I think it was meant to be D.C., actually. (Thanks for catching that.) --Pi zero (talk) 21:53, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
It was meant to be Washington, D. C. - see the transcript: "We are delighted you are starting your Washington agenda here with us before you meet with the IMF and with President Trump at the White House." The AC headquarters are also in the capital - I did not think it should be sourced, as the linked WP article covers it. Leaving it out is fine with me though. - Xbspiro (talk) 22:12, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
I somehow missed the reference in the transcript; well, that's why I habitually say I "didn't find" things in the sources, rather than saying they weren't there. That would have sufficed, yes. I'm inclined not to wrestle with fixing it; it'd be fine to have, but as you note, it's also fine without. (I did notice that the Wikipedia article said their headquarters are in D.C.; that wouldn't have to mean the meeting was at their headquarters. Reminder: Wikipedia is not a source, in the verification sense; we (mainly, writers rather than reviewers) can use it as a place to find sources, if it cites a source that's trust-worthy, accessible over the internet, and really contains the information.) --Pi zero (talk) 00:03, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
I will try to link (primary source) event invitations in the future, if any, on the collaboration page to clarify the time and place. Here it is, albeit a little late, for the talk in question. - Xbspiro (talk) 11:14, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
