Get me rewrite: Trump primps for summit

Perhaps the day's most misleading and inaccurate top headline

The real story.
In the Trump Administration, Science Is Unwelcome. So Is Advice.  (The New York Times, 6/9/2018)
Mr. Trump is the first president since 1941 not to name a science adviser, a position created during World War II to guide the Oval Office on technical matters ranging from nuclear warfare to global pandemics. As a businessman and president, Mr. Trump has proudly been guided by his instincts. Nevertheless, people who have participated in past nuclear negotiations say the absence of such high-level expertise could put him at a tactical disadvantage in one of the weightiest diplomatic matters of his presidency.
